A Weaver's Book of 8-Shaft Patterns
From the Friends of Handwoven

By Carol Strickler 

Variations on twills, complex overshot, crackle, lace and huck, double weave and shadow weave all abound in this satisfying collection of complete weaving drafts in the style of the classic 4-harness collection of Marguerite Davison. For those moments to study something new are diversified plain weaves, extended twills, unit weaves, piquet multiple tabby, and more. When you know basically what you want, this well-laid-out book will show you several options toward your weaving goal. This complete manual is a road map.

8-Shaft weaving must have

When I got my 8 shaft loom I asked friends in my guild which weaving books I should get and this was top of the list. When ever I am asked the same question I always respond in the same way now.

"A Weavers Book of 8 Shaft Patterns" is a must have for any weaving library. The wealth of drafts and explain actions will keep you busy for a long time. Drafts are easy to follow for people who have some experience already reading drafts and if you need to see cloth in color you can always joint the facebook page where people share their work (I have been inspired there by drafts that didn't catch my eye in the book).

Highly recommend this book!
