Easy Weaving with Supplemental Warps: Overshot, Velvet, Shibori, and More eBook
This product will be accessible from My Downloadable Products located in My Account after purchase.
Imagine being able to weave overshot along the length of your cloth with just one shuttle, or being able to weave terry cloth towels for your bath. All this and more is possible by using a supplementary warp.
Many of the designer fabrics found in stores are woven with supplemental warps, which many weavers believe they can't weave at home - until now! It used to be thought that you needed a supplementary warp beam to get all this new design potential, but with Deb Essen's technique you can weave with a supplementary warp right at home without having to buy a new loom!
In this 110-page eBook, Deb walks you through warping the loom with a supplementary warp with clear instructions and full-color photographs of each step. You'll also learn how to turn a 2-shuttle draft to make it a 1-shuttle supplementary warp draft as well as her tips and techniques for warping a supplementary draft successfully. Once you've got the warping down, weave one of eight projects included in the eBook. Each project explores a different supplemental warp structure from turned overshot and monk's belt to Bedford cord and even velvet.

- very clear and easy to follow
- The writing is very clear and easy to follow. The photos and diagrams are also clear and useful. I liked reading this book and will certainly try some of the projects and techniques. The one down-side is that I had to print the book myself, as I want to be able to have the text near me while working through things (and to make notes on!) I do wish Interweave would offer more of their e-books in print-on-demand versions. (Posted on 10/14/2016)
- I have not accessed the e-book because I want a book I can touch.
I bought this because I was excited about supplemental warps. Turns out I bought an e-book, which I do not want. I want to be able to turn the pages and access the book where ever I want. Does this come in a book form? I have not downloaded the e-book but have heard positive things about both the info and the pictures.

- Finally terry cloth!
- I mainly bought this book because I wanted to weave terry cloth. The instructions are very clear with lots of pictures. I also like that she talks about what mistakes we can make and how to fix them. Now that I have the book the other projects look tempting, too especially the shibori. (Posted on 5/16/2016)
