Old Brocade Handout

I made this handout about 10 years ago, and really need to make a better one, but have not gotten around to it, since I usually give brocade lessons one on one.

Ecclesiastical Pomp & Aristocratic Circumstance is the book I recommend for brocade.  It is out of print, but a pdf is available from the author here:

Many people prefer to use a thicker thread or double thinner ones (such as wire) for the brocade weft.

Two Color Float Based Tablet Weaving

One of my goals is to develop more classes and handouts focusing on simpler versions of more advanced techniques to ease the transition between basic and intermediate/advanced tablet weaving.  I used screenshots to maintain formatting, so there will be overlap on some pictures, but hopefully it is still cohesive.  As always, I welcome any feedback on my handout.

Researching temple rings - work in progress

Researching temple rings, and figured I would post links to various articles, while I look for an extant example of a woven headband.

Very Basic Tablet Weaving Class Supplement

This handout is meant to be a supplimental for the class, and with school, I'm not sure when I will have time to flesh it out.  However, several people have been asking me for it, so, I am posting what I have, and will add the updated one later.

Compass Star pattern - Northshield populace badge

This was a rushed project (charted Saturday, warped Sunday, and finished before Thursday), so I probably would have refined the pattern to make it more round, if I had more time.  I also forgot to  add the fleur de lis to the top ray, so it doesn't exactly match the populace badge.
