HANDS ON RIGID HEDDLE WEAVING, Betty Linn Davenport.
This easy-to-use guide covers choosing, setting up, and weaving on a rigid heddle loom, and things you can make with plain-weave variations. The rigid heddle loom is light, portable and particularly suited for 2-harness weaves. Despite its almost toy-like appearance, beautiful fabrics can be woven on it, as the author so well demonstrates. She starts off by telling you to select a loom, then goes on to warping it and weaving on it. She discusses sett, balanced weave, weft-emphasis and weft-faced fabrics, warp-emphasis and warp-faced fabrics, surface textures, and tapestry. If you want to start weaving with a very small investment, this is the way to go. Very well-illustrated in black & white and color. ISBN:0934026254. 120 pages, softcover 8½” x 10¾”.
