8 Shafts, 10 Treadles, so many ways to do DoubleWeave!

Posted By Penny Peters on May 19, 2011

Pat Stewart will give a slide program sharing her approach to designing block double weave on 8 shafts, from ideas on how to design profile drafts to techniques for visualizing thread by thread drafts. Included will be a technique for weaving 3 or 4-treadling block drafts (which usually requires 12 or 16 treadles) on no more than 10 treadles (with no more than 2 treadles pressed simultaneously and no retying of treadles). Besides extensive handouts, Pat will make available a couple dozen profile drafts and several full drafts of her 8-shaft weavings as WIF drafts, which any weaving program can open and manipulate.
