Winding a Warp & Using a Paddle by Peggy Osterkamp
A guide that makes weaving fun with new techniques from European hand weavers and the textile industry.
The first book in the series, “Number One – Winding a Warp & Using a Paddle”, guides you through every step of planning a project and measuring the warp threads. The second book, “Number Two – Warping Your Loom and Tying on New Warps” gives the steps for putting the warp on the loom from back to front. The third book in the series, “Number Three – Weaving and Drafting Your Own Cloth” extensively covers the weaving process, troubleshooting, and weave drafting.
Peggy’s special skill is making the richness of her training and experience accessible to students. She presents a wealth of weaving knowledge, much of it never available before in the United States.
