Weaving! Class & the official book list.

My first weaving class last night was long, lasting until about 10:30. But we learned and I managed to wind a warp, sley the reed, thread the heddles, tie on, and weave! Okay, only about 3", but it's a start. My little sampler is 5" wide at 12 epi. New toys, new terms, new gadgets *smile* I have about 4 hours of homework (plainweave, twill, experimenting) this week, but it will be fun.

The official list o' books I've been told I need is:

Learning to Weave by Deb Chandler ISBN: 1883010039
Mastering Weave Structures by Sharon Alderman ISBN: 1931499322
The Handbook of Timesaving Tables for Weavers, Spinners and Dyers by Bettie Roth and Chris Schulz
Handweavers Pattern Book by Margarite Davis ISBN: 0960317201
Finishing Touches for the Handweaver by Virginia M. West ISBN: 0-934026-40-8
Doubleweave on 4 to 8 shafts by Ursine Arn-Grischott ISBN: 1-883010-74-8
