Rosaline,

I can't find your e-mail address, so I hope that you may discover this message. Thank you very much for your kind offer to lend me the book by Anita Mayer.

I have thought about this, and am declining your offer because I think the postage cost is too expensive.

best wishes, Dorothy

hi,
I have the book 'clothing from the hands that weave' by anita luvera mayer.
if you like, I can send you the book, and after 1 year, you send it back. in that year you can look if you like it and work with it.

If you know how to sew you don't need those books! For example, if your fabric is well and closely woven, just cut it. It is fabric after all........ If it is not quite closely woven and/or if you are nervous about cutting, you can interface the pieces with fusible interfacing. There is interfacing so light weight you would barely know it was there. And if you want no interfacing and are

Hi Dorothy

I love a blog, too! Even though I've been weaving a very, very long time I never stop learning and a blog is a great way to learn someone elses techniques.

I've not heard of or seen Sharon Aldermans book "Handwoven, Tailormade", I must look out for it. I have 10 yards of handwoven fabric to make up into a suit, but have asked my SIL to make it up for me. I have a

Handwoven, Tailormade was one of the first books I purchased when starting to weave and I used to use it alot. Other books you could try are "Make your own Japanese Clothes" by John Marshall and "The Folkwear Book of Ethnic Clothing" by Mary S Parker. Also books by Virginia West. She has lots of clothing patterns. One book is "A Cut Above Couture Clothing for Fibre Artists" but I haven't actually

Thanks for your comment regarding my blog. It's funny how you lose heart but then when you say so you find out that there are people reading and enjoying it. makes it worthwhile agin.

I have Betty Beard's book and it's great because her designs require minimal sewing. I'm so glad you reminded me of that book. I need to do some projects from it.

I think Sharon Alderman has a book out on this subject as well. I seem to remember borrowing it from my land guild's library. Cannot for the life of me recall the name of it however.

Hi Dorothy I know just what you mean about buying books :) I too have been going quite mad-I always have this absurd idea that if the books are on my shelf somehow the knowledge will migrate from them to me and that by having them I am somehow more knowledgable! It sounds as though you are on the way to be making your own garments though-well done!

They are all excellent books. I walked the same path you did: spinning-weaving and now hopefully some sewing.
