NEW BAND WEAVING BOOK
Below is a letter we just received on a new band weaving book by Heather Torgenrud. Contact us for your copy.
Dear Joanne ,
Schiffer Publishing, Ltd. announces the release of
Norwegian Pick-Up Bandweaving By Heather Torgenrud
For the first time in English, a complete book about Norwegian pick-up
bandweaving―from its fascinating history to beautiful bands you can make
yourself, with more than 100 pattern charts from bands in museum
collections. Part 1 tells the story of how these bands were used in the
rural communities of 18th and 19th century Norway, as stocking bands,
swaddling bands, sending bands, and more. Part 2 looks closely at twenty
bands brought to America by Norwegian immigrants, and what they tell us
about traditional patterns, colors, and materials. Part 3 has clear and
concise instructions for weaving pick-up on simple, traditional band
heddles, and these instructions can also be adapted to other kinds of
looms. Meticulously researched, easy-to-read, and profusely illustrated,
this book is destined to become a classic in the field. It will interest
not only weavers but anyone who appreciates textile arts, folk costumes,
and Norwegian culture.
