Handwoven Tape: Understanding and Weaving Early American and Contemporary Tape

BY Susan Faulkner Weaver

Description

Before the days of elastic and zippers, many early American households had a tape loom for making the cloth tape needed by the family. This 208-page, hardcover book documents the fascinating American history of handwoven tape and offers patterns and instructions to enable today’s weavers to recreate them. Over 280 color images are included, with step-by-step instructions for setting up a tape loom with warp threads and explanations of how to weave your own tape. Instructions are also included to create one-of-a-kind gifts and decorations like key chains, holiday garlands, and lanyards!
