Peg Loom Weaving: All you need to know to get started

“This is a fantastic way to use up and recycle old fabrics and clothing, as well as combining the wide array of gorgeous yarns and fibres now available. It is very environmentally friendly, requiring no additional sources of power other than your “elbow”. 


The author, Jacqueline Jeynes, says "The book was written as a direct result of customers for our own Peg Looms asking for guidance on “how to” use the loom and what could they make apart from a scarf.


At this time, 2012, the only guidance was in leaflet form or on-line, but no book that covered all the basic principles. So the book Peg Loom Weaving: All you need to know to get started was written and published.


Assuming that you are not an expert at using a peg loom, it covers the basic principles of peg loom weaving with a range of different projects that will hopefully inspire your own variations. It is not a “cookery book” approach with recipes that state exact measurements. 


The whole point about peg loom weaving is that you decide on your own design and use whatever materials you have to hand or choose to buy. Once you have mastered the techniques, you can experiment with any type of material that will bend enough to weave around the row of pegs.

Felt Making: All you need to know to get started

This is one of the best books to get you started on a new skill - wet felt making - or to inspire you to try more exciting projects. 


It is about the process of wet felting rather than dry or needle felting, which are very different techniques. This is about laying down strands of wool fibres, adding hot soapy water, covering with bubble-wrap or fabric netting (to stop the wet fibres sticking to your hands and arms!), then working vigorously until the fibres start to twist and matte together. It will gradually shrink by around a third to produce a firm piece of felt fabric. 


As Jacqueline says, it really is like painting with fibres as you lay out richly dyed wool in loose shapes and patterns. Best of all, anyone can do it whatever your age.
