The 2021 Summer issue of Easy Weaving with Little Looms delivers 23 projects designed to calm your soul, beautify your home, and add a dash of handwoven panache to your wardrobe. All of the projects can be woven with pin, inkle, and rigid-heddle looms, or weaving tablets. There are projects for every ability level, from beginner such as the Boldly Striped Napkins, woven in plain weave by Angela Tong, to the more advanced Double-Faced Herringbone Scarf by Nancy Peck which uses two heddles, a heddle rod, and a pick-up stick to weave twill.
For pin-loomers Gabi van Tassel’s Raffiametry Placemats showcase how to use raffia on a pin loom, while Kay Meador’s Ebb & Flow Pillow takes advantage of slow striping yarns to create a soothing, painterly color-block pillow cover. Jennifer Williams inkle-woven Relaxation Eye Cover brings the spa experience into your home with silk, lavender, and flax seeds. And for tablet weavers, give your high tops a boost of color and pattern with John Mullarkey’s tablet-woven Astounding Shoelaces
Besides the wonderful projects, you’ll learn about using chance to boost your designs; how to join woven pieces using crochet, embroidery, and knitting; new ways to use fun and colorful art yarns; and 3 tapestry techniques that work equally well on the rigid-heddle loom. Susan J. Folkes writes about the history of bandweaving and her journey to become the expert band weaver that she is today.
