Item details

This book is the only one that contains weaving drafts for miniature doll houses. There is a section on helpful hints for weaving with fine threads, making a warp and finishing the pieces; a section on drafts and one on designing an heirloom miniature.

The cover, design and draft pages are in color showing details of the miniature items which include rugs, towels, coverlets, blankets, sheets, pillow shams, etc. The book is 8 1/2" x 11", wire-o bound, with 46 pages of 16 drafts for dimity, M&Os, fustian, and damask weaves, to name a few. If you weave for miniatures, this book is a must.

This is the only original book straight from the publisher, not a copy-published book. It is the only book that is bound with wire-o so you can lay the book flat while working.

Erf is widely recognized as an authority on Shaker textiles. Her reproduction textiles are in the collections of the Metropolitan Museum of Art as well as the Shaker villages at Pleasant Hill, Kentucky; Canterbury, New Hampshire; and Hancock, Massachusetts.
