Regular price $54.98 Save $0.00

The learning value of making a woven sampler, the excitement of creating a well-designed functional piece - Samplers You Can use gives you both at once. All the variables that weavers explore through samplers - threading and treadling variations, sett, yarn sizes and types, and more - can be incorporated into clothing, linens and many other items. The author's aim has been to design pieces which from a distance have a unified, handsome all-over design, but which from up close can be seen to be composed of many diverse sections which become a permanent reference for planning future projects. In this book, the author shares her approach to planning and designing many types of samplers, and includes a dozen actual sampler projects with complete instructions.
