Weaving on a potholder loom is taken to new heights in this book of patterns and techniques written by Weaving Way Community member, Linda Lutomski.
This book will help you to weave colorful textures and designs beyond plain weave using popular loop looms, both PRO size and traditional sizes. Learn to weave twill patterns that are not only stunning, but are also sturdy and flexible.
The beautiful designs can be made in a multitude of color combinations to achieve a completely different look. The square weavings that result are beautiful as hot pads, stitched together to make purses, bags, seat covers, or rugs as well!
The instructions are straightforward line-by-line written directions with clear photographs to illustrate the patterns and techniques.
Linda is an artist and designer who taught art for the prestigious Cranbrook Educational Community, in Bloomfield Hills, MI. She moved to Colorado where she set up her studio to continue making art and became part of the local artistic community.
Travel and photography have been major influences in Linda's art, and her weaving reflects these experiences. The idea that a small loom could be a canvas for experimentation and a love of fibers have been expressed through spinning, dyeing, knitting and weaving. All of the tactile and design aspects of these practices have led to sharing in the classroom and workshops, and now through writing this book.
Don't forget that my shop is full of loops, loom kits and accessories to help you to create the patterns found in this book if you need to top up your equipment stash.
