Jan/Feb: What’s Hot!
Discover the latest trends in fibers and finishing, learn how to use fulling and felting for texture and devoré (burnout) for see-through patterning, and enjoy a special feature on what’s hot in handwoven fashions.
This issue is a definitive handbook on designing stripes in handwovens. Swatch Collection #34 and a wide range of projects show how to use proportions (Fibonacci and more) and even a musical score for stripe orders and color gradations.
May/Jun: Lace: Huck, Bronson, leno, Swedish, felted
Projects teach a multitude of ways to create holes—on purpose!—in handwovens, from light and lacy to thick and warm: in cotton for a christening gown, Tencel for a shawl, linen for curtains, wool for blankets, and more.
Sept/Oct: Weaving for the home
Fill your home with handwoven fabrics: rugs, upholstery, table linens, kitchen and bath towels, and more. Also in this issue: Handwoven’s Fabric Forecast (the first of our color forecasts applied to weaving).
Nov/Dec: Weaving by and for Children
A Lord of the Rings Fellowship Cloak turns this issue into a weaving-collector’s treasure. Blankets, clothes, felted toys, and an overshot runner designed by a third-grader will make you smile—and weave.
