It’s finally off to the printer!
My new book, fully illustrated how-to on sprang will be available starting in mid-August, 2011.

ISBN 978-0-9784695-2-8

I am now ready to take pre-orders. The price is $24.95 plus shipping. It’s 80 pages, a bit longer than Fingerweaving Untangled. Same quality of illustrations. Lots of information on the basic weaving techniques of interlinking, interlacing and intertwining. Also featured are detailed step-by-step of figure-8 warp and circular warp. The book features directions for making hats, bags, sweaters and socks. This is the book I was looking for when I was trying to learn sprang. Hope I’ve made the way easier for you.


Historic Ft William

July 11, 2011

Drove to Thunder Bay last Thursday to attend the Great RendezVous at Historic Fort William.
On the way I stopped in at Quetico Park to see the sash I wove for them while artist in residence two years ago.

At the RendezVous, I gave a workshop on fingerweaving to participants and Ft William Staff.

This woman had learned fingerweaving by herself. She found the book Fingerweaving Untangled in her local library.
