The classic book about weaving in America. Published in 1928
  WeavingIndiana | Feb 28, 2011 |
I have two editions of this book: 1944 and 1951. Though they have the same titles and the same author, the content in these editions is not identical.

This edition is divided into two parts. The first discusses the origins and development of weaving, it's decline between the late 1800s and early 1900s, it's revival, weaving literature, collections, colonial coverlets, and the language of weaving.

Part two Discusses spinning and dyeing, looms, draft writing and notation, and finishing of handwoven fabrics. It also covers overshot, summer & winter, double weave, double-face twill, damask, linen weaves, and twill.

I have two editions of this title, each with a different copyright date (1944 and 1951). They are not the same! The introductory chapters are identical, but from there the content changes. Most of the drafts are the same, but the later edition includes more than the earlier. The 20 chapters include: Beginner's Problems; Design of the Fabric; Choice of Pattern and Color; Adjustments, Knots, the Tie-Up, Finishing; as well as plain weave, twills, overshot, summer & winter, damask, spot Bronson, crackle, double weave, leno, and rug weaving.
