The fascinating subject of handweaving is fully explored in this reference, which covers basic subjects such as warping a loom and making bobbins of weft, as well as more elaborate, highly decorative projects. Patterns are arranged by varying levels of difficulty and design so beginners and experienced weavers alike will discover new insights and concepts. Among the 40 step-by-step projects included in this volume are designs for baby blankets, shawls, table cloths, and linen hand towels.

Author Biography

Laila Lundell has long been considered a source of inspiration and innovation in the handweaving community. She is a highly respected principal and instructor at HV skola—Handarbetets Vänner (school of The Association of Friends of Textile Art) in Stockholm, Sweden. Her original edition of The Big Book of Weaving is renowned in the weaving community, serving as the introductory text on the subject for handweavers around the world. This revised edition should provide a new generation of weavers with the same service.

Elisabeth Windesjö is an instructor at HV skola—Handarbetets Vänner (school of The Association of Friends of Textile Art) in Stockholm, Sweden, where she worked side by side with Laila Lundell during her first year. She revised and modernized Lundell’s famous text with the hope that new weavers will find it as valuable an educational tool as she did.
