Finishing Touches for the Handweaver
Finishing Touches for the Handweaver by Virginia West; 1988; 96 pages, softcover. Newly re-printed in 2014!
The right finishing touch can mean as much to a piece of weaving as the right frame for a picture. This book shows how to hemstitch and some different styles of hemstitching, how to make and add handles to bags, how to join widths of handwoven materials, how to make and secure decorative fringes, how to warp the ends of braids and miter corners, using embroidery techniques as finishing touches, and so on. The ideas and instructions are very clear and complete. We recommend it as a good basic book for your library, one that you will refer to again and again.
