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.
