This is so exciting!
Last year we were surprised to find that my most popular weaving tip on my website was the hemstitching tip. To date out of 94,000 views of the list of tips, 47,000 are for hemstitching alone. That’s why about a year ago we published our first Kindle book called Hemstitching. It is really a reference/instructional booklet. We decided people were needing more on the basics.
Now we are about to publish our second Kindle book called, Weaver’s Knots. There are 6,000 words and 67 illustrations. showing every step in the tying of each knot. Of course there will be directions to tie a weaver’s knot, but did you know there are several different ways to tie it? How to tell you have made it correctly and equally important, how to undo them. There is also a double weaver’s knot included. Special knots are given for slippery threads, hanging and adjusting shafts, tying up treadles. There is a chart for different situations and what knots to use. I’m very excited about it. When my technical proof reader finished it she was amazed that even though she had a big fear of knots, she could do every one successfully. I’ll let you know when it is published.
In the mean time you can check out my Hemstitching book by clicking it’s cover below.
I’m excited to announce that my first Kindle book (booklet) is now available on Amazon. It is in response to My Top Ten List of the most popular of my weaving tips. The most viewed tip was for Hemstitching! Almost 34,000 people have viewed this tip in the 5 years that my new website has been up. That amazes me and thrills me.
Hemstitching is a way to begin and end weaving on the loom without having to sew hems or knot fringes later, after the cloth has been taken off. For years I thought I couldn’t do it but when I was taught it I’ve loved the technique.
I’ve updated the material in the Kindle book and added a gallery of variations from old embroidery books. What makes my instructions special is that there are 9 step-by-step illustrations and text whereas most weaving sources only show one illustration and no text. There are directions for hemstitching at the beginning of your weaving and also at the end.
It is available for download on Amazon for $2.99. Of course it can be viewed on all Kindle readers and on most smart phones, tablets, and computers if you install the free Kindle reading app on your device.
You can buy the book from Amazon here: Peggy’s Weaving Tips: Hemstitching. I’d love it if you would give it a good review. If this is successful I’ll publish more Kindle booklets of weaving tip collections.
