About Handwovens:
Weaving by hand is a “slowmade” product. There are many hours that go into planning, warping and threading a loom before something is actually woven. Because weavers use high quality materials to make their handwovens pricing may differ from what you would expect in a local store or mall.  A handwoven item will often last 10-15 or more times than an item that has been mass produced. Purchasing handwoven goods helps to preserve the art of handweaving for future generations.

The Shuttle-Craft Book of American Hand-Weaving – Updated Photo Links

As a personal research project on weaving, I downloaded the original text to this book from a publicly accessible digital copy as a pdf file.

My pdf was taken from the first edition of the book, copyright 1928. Adobe Pdf Reader is required to use this file.

To this text I have added updated links for all of the images that I could find giving us access to color photographs.

I was able to find that many of these pieces are still in the hands of museums and have been digitized for public use.

 

The fee being collected for the file download is to help defray costs of research and hosting of the file.

Snowball and Roses Bands Draft – WIF File

Download Computer Software Draft for an 8 Shaft Pattern for the Snowball and Roses Bands – File is WIF and will work in most weaving software programs.

Also Included is a PDF with additional information about the draft.

Before downloading, please note: I have developed this draft on a tableloom using levers, the resulting .wif file will show a lift plan when you open it. If you are using an 8 shaft floor loom with 10 treadles this is not a good draft for your loom because the structure is complex, requiring 2 treadles per block. This draft can be woven by compu-dobby loom using 8 shafts.
