Jane Patrick was the editor of Handwoven for years, and also worked as VP for Schacht Spindle. She knows her stuff when it comes to warp and weft!
Stephanie Flynn Sokolov has published and coauthored a number of books, and today (in addition she teaches in Bolder, CO).
The history and innovation of these two makes this book so special. Taking time to provide clear instructions on these techniques (and then branching out into other more unconventional fabrics) is what makes this book coveted.
For those who have just started exploring all that a rigid heddle loom can do (and for those with a larger loom that might want to build confidence using only two shafts) this is a fantastic collection. It's nice to see a book that explores different materials and techniques focused solely on the rigid heddle.
Don't have a loom? You can make any scarf in this book on a 10" loom. It's a small investment to see how this craft fits into your life. (Of course, if you already have a loom of any size, you can start weaving as soon as you open the book!)
What's my favorite scarf in the collection? Well, I do love them all, but I am intrigued by the cover scarf. That texture is beautiful (and super simple to make once you learn the secret!)
Congratulations to Nancy! An email has been sent to her giving her the good news. A copy of this great book is on its way to her!
Thank you to everyone for your comments and help sharing about this new book.
