Review by Jane Kirby, May 2022
I love reading books on tapestry and have always been disappointed that our county has very few in the library collection, so when I saw this in the local branch’s ‘New Titles’ section I was surprised and pleased that they had bought something about tapestry, borrowing it immediately.
It is a very basic introduction to tapestry weaving, written by a self-taught weaver. It guides you through making a simple frame from a picture frame, retaining the backboard of the picture frame to support your cartoon (referred to as a template). Retaining the backboard means that there is no access to the warp from behind, and necessitates needle weaving, rather than using bobbins or butterflies.
