Subject: [weavetech] Happy New Year and FREE DOWNLOAD
I have finally updated the handout from my presentation at Complex Weavers
2022 "Tied Weaves on the Drawloom" and have put it on my web site for anyone to download.
I realize that there are not that many who will be modifying their looms to actually produce the fabrics, but perhaps it provides an interesting Holiday Read.
Here is the link:
I have also begun putting various publications and articles that I've written over the years (including the Free Temple Plans first put here about
20 years ago) at this location:

Thank you so much for the pdf. It was like a christmas present.
I own a drawloom equipment from Öxabäck from the time when I lived in Stockholm, Sweden. Recently I got second equipment from a dear friend who stopped weaving and sold out the loom. She thought it would be easier to sell the loom without the drawloom attachment. So I own now wto Öxabäck and both of them have the drawloom eqipment. When I started weaving with drawlooms it was in the 80-ies . Many weavers got inspired by weaving damask patterns. I did some weaves but then ideas stopped. In an old swedish weaving book I saw a doubleweave, like Welsh blankets, done on a drawloom but no further explanation. So I tried to find out how this could be achieved an it worked well. I had to wait for a very long time for the wool but now the loom is ready to be dressed.
On the other hand I planned to weave some towels in summer and winter. And again I had the feeling it could be done with a drawloom. I checked the Swedish books of Kerstin Lovallius and Mariana Eriksson and there it was, inspiration for future studies and weaves.
And now I got the pdf, just in time. So don´t worry there are people that like it!
Wishes for a Happy New Year Felizitas
The care that you took to product such a high quality booklet desirve a load sound of clapping from all drawloon weavers.
Best wishes for the New Year!
