  • Teacher of the Year

    I remember my very first weaving class. I had signed up for a course at the Las Cruces Museum of Art with a couple of friends and I felt pretty confident. At that time in my life I was working at the New Mexico Farm and Ranch Heritage Museum and so I had seen countless weaving demonstrations on the museum’s...

  • Floating Selvedges Made Easy

    Hi Madelyn! I was taught that you are sort of “cheating” if you use floating selvedges. So, when I weave overshot (or other 2-shuttle weaves), I interlock the two wefts at the selvedges. For twills, I can usually figure out a treadle/shuttle order that takes the weft around the outside thread...

  • A New eBook: Weaving with Linen

    I will never forget my introduction to weaving with linen. I threaded a linen warp on a borrowed Dorothy table loom for my first-ever weaving workshop.

  • What Not to Do: or How to Fail at Business Without Really Trying

    “ I’m sure I’m not alone in someday dreaming of selling my handwovens as a way to use up yarn, make a little extra money, and then (if I’m completely honest) buy more yarn. Handwoven contributor and tech editor Lisa Hill also had the same idea, but things didn’t quite turn...

  • Using a Sectional Beam

    Hi Madelyn I’d like to know how you use a sectional beam? -Sara Hi Sara! Sectional warping usually means that you wind the warp on the beam in each individual section, one section at a time. If you are putting on a 5-yd warp at 20 ends per inch in 2” sections, for example, you have to wind...

  • Troubleshooting Elongated Designs

    Hi Madelyn! I have been falling in love with overshot and have done several recent projects from Handwoven . My problem is that I am not, as hard as I try, able to beat my designs to square the way the pieces look in the photos. I’ve ended up being happy enough with the results, but would like...

  • Handwoven for the Home

    John Mullarkey's waffle-weave towel cleverly uses a tablet-woven trim instead of a plain-weave trim so the towel remains even in width throughout. As I’m writing this newsletter Monday morning, I’m finishing up all the last to-dos before I head to Convergence. I’ve got most of my...
