You Wove that on What???

Stretching the Limits of a Rigid Heddle Loom

About the Book

Rigid heddle looms have a bad reputation of being "toys", which could not be further from the truth. There are many weave structures which can be woven on a rigid heddle loom which are difficult, if not impossible to weave on multishaft looms. They do have their limitations, but they are definitely not toys. This book seeks to show the breadth of the rigid heddle loom and is intended for weavers of all levels of knowledge.
