Braids and Beyond


by Jacqui Carey

This very interesting book was published to go with the Braids and Beyond Exhibition in England in 2003. The exhibition displayed a wide range of uses for braids and other narrow textiles. The book was not intended as a catalog of the exhibition but as a useful introduction to many narrow textiles with excellent clear photographs and diagrams and good instruction. Subjects covered are: Braids, Twisting, Knotting, French Knitting, Lucet, Weaving, Tablet or Card Weaving, Kumihimo or Bobbin Braiding, Loop Manipulation, Sprang, and Ply-Split.

Soft cover, 56 pages, published in England
