Pour les métiers à tisser à cadres. Un livre avec des modèles en overshot.
With more than 30 of the best overshot projects compiled from 20 years of Weaver’s magazine and Prairie Wool Companion, this weaver’s reference combines step-by-step instructions with weaving theory. Such projects as heirloom linens, traditional coverlets, and colorful modern applications for scarves, table toppers, and wall hangings are presented, covering everything a crafter needs to know to design fabulous fabrics in overshot and its cousin star-and-diamond weave. Both beginners and advanced weavers working on at least four-shaft looms will delight in the projects provided.
Des armures en overshot pour métier à tisser à 4 cadres. L’auteur de l’ouvrage les a tous réalisés sur son petit métier à tisser « Structo » de 20 cm de large.
This book features the original sample collection and handwritten drafts of the talented, early 20th century weaver, Bertha Gray Hayes of Providence, Rhode Island. She designed and wove miniature overshot patterns for four-harness looms that are creative and unique. The book contains color reproductions of 72 original sample cards and 20 recently discovered patterns, many shown with a picture of the woven sample, and each with computer-generated drawdowns and drafting patterns. Her designs are unique in their asymmetry and personal in her use of name drafting to create the designs.
Bertha Hayes attended the first nine National Conferences of American Handweavers (1938-1946). She learned to weave by herself through the Shuttle-Craft home course and was a charter member of the Shuttle-Craft Guild, and authored articles on weaving.
