TRIANGLE FRAME LOOM WEAVING MAGIC for Shawls, Blankets, Jackets & More 89 minutes $36.50 (Carol Leigh Brack-Kaiser)   The magical loom that dresses itself! Weaving is done with a continuous strand of yarn for both warp and weft, by weaving loops inside previous loops, to create beautiful, imaginative body drapes, ponchos, blankets, and more. No weaving experience is necessary, although advanced techniques offer the experienced weaver unique, creative ways to express oneself. No individual yarns are measured and threaded through heddles or reeds, as with traditional weaving. There are very few calculations needed, so you're ready to start immediately. (After you get a loom, that is!) This video takes you through the step-by-step process of weaving a sample six-foot triangle shawl, using basic tabby, twill and leno lace weave structures. Carol Leigh shows you how to make color changes, how to easily correct mistakes, two ways of finishing a collar edge, and three ways to put triangle pieces together - one for ponchos, one for blankets, and one for ruanas and jackets. She'll show you how to full and nap your weaving for a professional fabric finish. You will learn methods of planning a project, appropriate yarns, and how to determine yarn quantities needed. Let your imagination go! VHS or DVD

TRIANGULAR WEAVING - Frame Loom Techniques 60 minutes $31.50 (Barbara Borgerd) This clever handweaving technique requires a simple portable triangular frame loom which you can make following the written instructions. No loom warping, cutting, or measuring is required, and there is no waste since you weave with a continuous loop of yarn. As you make a small neckpiece, a "tri-baby," you'll learn about weaving, changing colors, correcting errors, fringe, neck edge finishes and blocking. Then you'll be ready to weave a beautiful scarf, shawl, or ruana on a larger frame using this same process. You'll be inspired by many beautiful pieces! A plus is the handwoven mohair flower pin you'll learn to make using a cardboard loom. VHS only.
