A good basic introduction to DoubleWeave. Like most Interweave Press books, make sure you go to their "Corrections" website and print off the errata for the book.[...]
This book is excellent even for the beginner! I've never woven double weave but found this book so easy to understand that I went through the instructions, warped my loom and made a sampler with considerable ease. If you're intimidated by a weaving technique you've yet to experience this book will make the double weave experience enjoyable--give it a try!
I purchased both the book and the DVD as I find that instructional books can sometimes leave me guessing. The instructions are clear and I have successfully made it through the 4 shaft sampler. I am a self taught weaver of only 2 years who lives very rurally. My guild meetings are almost 200 miles round trip so I can't really go for instruction very often. I had heard of double weave, knew I could weave double cloth, and wanted to learn it. That was the extent of my knowledge. With no help and just this book, I am inspired and confident and I am only half way through the book.She walks us through each type of double weave such as two separate layers, layers joined on one edge, tubes (joined on both ends), double weave pick up (my favorite), quilting, and so much more! She has included several projects in the book. If you want to learn to double weave, this is the book. She makes it so simple and understandable. I highly recommend this to anyone who wants to learn to double weave.
I am currently making the sampler in the beginning of this book, and along with her YouTube videos, this book is a great teaching tool! Ms. Moore takes you through each variation of four-shaft double weave in a very thorough, easy to understand method. She has multiple explanations for each treadling, which helped me enormously. There aren't very many projects, it's true, but it is a terrific jumping off point from which to make your own projects.
Loved it !! I broke the spine on this book, that's how much I used it !! If you're interested in learning doubleweave, this is the most comprehensive book you'll find to learn with. Just follow the steps, and then it'll hit you, that moment of clarity when you finally get something that makes you go "wow, the things that I can do with this..". I can't say enough about it. Buy it, buy it, you won't regret it!! There's a great color study doubleweave project also, and a doubleweave pick-up. What makes this different from other doubleweave books is the way the author lays it all out...Jennifer Moore is spectacular and needs to put out more books!!
This is a great book for a weaver that is new to Doubleweave... You will learn, step by step, how to warp your loom , and how to weave several different Doubleweave techniques... When you finish the lessons, you will have a sampler, and patterns for many more projects... I do highly suggest that you check out the Interweave Video downloads, Doubleweave Basics and Pickup, by the same author...
Wow -- Jennifer Moore has really pulled together a gorgeous book -- I can salivate just looking at the photos of the beautiful works of weaving she has pulled together for this book. I hope to have her autograph my copy when she comes to teach a Doubleweave class at Village Wools in February!
Jennifer Moore's new doubleweave book brings you all the information you need to get right to work. She takes you step by step through the process from the most basic double weave items to the most complicated. She's with you all of the way. Hats off to Jennifer... This book is a must buy - I did, and you should too.
