Reviews for Innovative Weaving on the Frame Loom

Noreen is an innovator in the best sense of the word, so the title of this book is absolutely spot on. Seriously, everything from making string heddles to copying four-harness drafts on a simple peg loom. She covers inlay, lace, weaving modules and sewing them together, weaving triangles on a square loom (!!!) and then a long selection of imaginative projects. I'm literally giggling at the number of things she has managed to make on a Schacht Easel Weaver loom. If you love a freeform, crafty approach to your work, Noreen is your gal.--Rebecca Mezoff In this comprehensive guide, fiber artist Crone-Findlay (Potholder Loom Weaving) offers 20 projects for new and experienced weavers alike. The author begins by explaining what a frame loom is, followed by an Equipment and Tools section that outlines everything needed to get started on any project. Crone-Findlay covers basic gear, such as graph paper ( one of the handiest tools that a weaver can use when designing ) and more specialized instruments, like the Schacht Incredible Rope Machine for making twisted cords. Patterns include a simple woven bookmark, a playful Storybook Doll, and a multistep Coat of Many Colors that requires nearly 4,000 yards of yarn. She also offers clever hacks; for example, if one doesn't have the extra-long Tunisian or Afghan crochet hooks needed to navigate the loom, Crone-Findlay suggests fashioning one using wooden chopsticks. Each design is paired with clear step-by-step instructions and photos of the process. This is an excellent place for would-be weavers to begin, or for experienced artists to find something new.--Publishers Weekly, 11/1/2020
