Descriptions du produit

Revue de presse

Matthiessen, Barbara. Small Loom & Freeform Weaving. Creative Pub: Quayside. 2008. c.128p. ISBN 978-1-58923-361-4. pap. $19.95. FIBER CRAFTS Purchasing a large, expensive loom is cost prohibitive for many novice weavers, and Matthiessen provides a variety of less expensive alternatives. Her solutions range from a homemade loom constructed from hair combs, dowels, and duct tape (yes, it's as primitive as it sounds) to commercial products such as Weavettes and the Ashford Knitter's Loom, a rigid heddle loom marketed to knitters. Matthiessen covers all aspects of weaving, including warping the loom, basic techniques, and finishing. Her low-cost approach to weaving will attract those curious about this ancient craft. Recommended for public libraries. - Library Journal, August 2008

Présentation de l'éditeur

30 projects for home decor and fashion accents

Yarn arts and felting are two of today's most popular crafts, and popularity for weaving, a natural extension of those crafts, is growing. Small hand-held looms and tabletop looms are now available at yarn shops and hobby/craft stores, and readers of Small Loom and Freeform Weaving can even construct looms themselves using common household materials. Most looms can be constructed in a couple minutes and can be reused numerous times.

This book will also show readers how to use their looms. Included are 30 projects, some of which can easily be completed in an evening or weekend. Readers will enjoy step-by-step, diagrammed instructions for personal items, such as iPod and cell phone holders, scarves, purses, and jewelry, and home decor projects, such as pillows, table runners, wall hangings, and book covers.

This is an interesting book containing 30 projects and five ways to weave. I actually purchased the book for the information on weavette looms. But am amazed to find out what you can do with a comb. Even though the projects are intriguing they could stand a little better description.

I set up several rigid heddle looms for others but sort of bypassed them for myself. Yet I am still interested in patterns, and other people's projects. I do not think I will try Pin weaving but it was interesting to read about.

For the price you cannot go wrong by adding this book to your library and some new skills to your repertoire.

2.0 étoiles sur 5 The cover and back are the best parts of the book. 11 novembre 2008

I repeat what another reviewer said: this book is NOT for beginners. Unless you know absolutely how to weave, do not waste your money because there are no pictorial directions and the directions/explanations fall woefully short of being helpful. A big dissapointment... The front and back covers are all that's inside, folks. I'll be returning this book. Originally I read the reviews and thought I would keep it no matter what, but now that I've seen it, no way.

The book is well illustrated, but the projects are nothing special. The longest portion of the book is spent on a specific brand of lap loom and the rest of the projects are kind of thrown in. I was disappointed and if I had seen the book beforehand, I would not have purchased it.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Great weaving on the go! 4 juin 2009

I was a bit so-so about this book until I got it and started looking through the various projects and techniques the author uses. She's definitely a woman after my own heart! Many of these techniques were written about in the 70's, but the books were either speaking to experienced textile students, or written for primary school classes, and so missed the rest of us.
Barbara Mathieson has taken the rather sparse and boring instructions from the 70s, dusted them off, and turned them right around so that they are bright, interesting, imaginative, innovative and gentle on the pocket. You can of course run out and purchase a rigid heddle loom to try these techniques out, but you could also get duct tape, cardboard and a comb to work just as well!
If you are into DYI, or on a strict budget, or just want to see if you could enjoy weaving, this is the book for you! If, like me, you like the challenge of using small looms for big results, you are not forgotten either. Its great to know how to make a custom loom for a particular project, and enjoy the freedom that this form of weaving gives you, without the restrictions of heddles and harnesses. And the possibilities for mixed media projects are endless.
Read, experiment and have fun!

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Not for beginners, but impressive anyway 4 octobre 2008

This is a fun book for people who enjoy turning unusual things into looms. It's great for getting ideas for coming up with your own funky weaving projects. It's not really for beginners. Beautiful pictures and great for inspiring creativity.

I should have researched this book more thoroughly before purchasing it. I thought it would inspire me with small loom projects for travel. I agree with the reviewers who say that this book is not for beginners. But experienced weavers need not get the book either! There seems to be a lack of weaving skill and design experience throughout the book. For example there is a fabric belt project woven on a lap loom. The size of the lap loom would have be the desired length of the belt plus 5". Who would be comfortable weaving on a 36" or so lap loom. The author has tried to get creative with some projects but with a lack of weaving skills and design knowledge, the projects end up looking like something woven at summer camp. I was hoping for ideas for small looms and free form weaving and this book did not deliver. Unfortunately I can not recommend this book to anyone interested in weaving...beginner or experienced.
