Video Download | 63 Minutes

Hemstitching is something weavers do regularly as a weft protector, as a means of protecting the material you have woven into your warp so that it doesn't unravel. It is an alternative to doing over hand knots.
In this video, Sara Bixler will teach you other variations of how you can incorporate hemstitching into the interior of your piece. She works through a sampler piece to guide you through each variation.

The different variations you will learn are:

  • Weft Protector
  • Ladder Hemstitching
  • Chevron (Zig Zag) Hemstitching
  • Leno Lace
  • Hemstitch effect in the interior of the piece

I generally like Sara Bixler as an instructor and her videos are usually thoughtful and useful. This video, however could benefit from some very serious editing. We really don't need to see her hemstitch across the ENTIRE WIDTH of the fabric EVERY TIME she shows a hemstitch technique. This could have been edited down. Repeating it a few times is fine, but 20 or 30 times for a very, very simple stitch? This is what video editing software is for. This makes the entire video painfully redundant. This is a bit of a theme with Sara -- who is clearly very knowledgeable and very interested in conveying that knowledge. However, she is the queen of repeatedl repetitive, redundancy in her language. Somebody needs to tell her that selvedges ARE EDGES. It isn't necessary to refer to (much less over and over) the "selvedge edge." It's like saying "the edge edge." Ditto on picks. She knows that in weaving picks ARE ROWS. So constantly saying "go up two pick rows" is also redundant. And, of course, it gets said over and over and over. So in short, I learned some things from this video -- so I'm happy I bought it -- , but I could have learned a lot more and enjoyed it a WHOLE LOT MORE if the repetition were removed -- either add more material or make it shorter. One other positive note: the video was well shot. Good job of showing what is being talked about. Review by N (Posted on 8/7/2015)
