Best of Weaver’s: Thick ‘n Thin


A collection of favorite projects and articles from the archives of Weaver’s Magazine.


In the last several decades, handweavers have enjoyed an explosive period of discovery—in fibers, structures, color interaction, finishing techniques, tools, and more. Each new discovery has followed on the heels of others so rapidly that Weaver’s readers barely had time to digest the content of one issue before another appeared at the door.

From this flurry, Thick ‘n’ Thin gathers weave structures that explore and exploit the mix that happens when thick threads and thin threads are placed together in warp and weft. This single volume contains jewels that clearly belong together, and the result is a whole much greater than the sum of its parts.

It is a source for great projects. Use it to learn color and design principles. Use it to gain a new understanding of how threads interact. And when you’ve mastered the basic principles, you can use it to ask your own What ifs.

Whatever you choose to use it for, you will turn to Thick ‘n Thin again and again. Edited by Madelyn Van Der Hoogt.
