I am pleased to announce that my new monograph Handwoven Decorative Trim – An introduction to weaving passementerie trims is available for sale.

Handwoven Decorative Trim - An introduction to weaving passementerie trim

Woven decorative trim has been around for thousands of years; however, there is very little available that explains how to weave it.  This monograph was written with weavers in mind.  So, if you understand just the basics of weaving, you will find this monograph full of helpful information.

This initial monograph is limited to warp-faced plain weave . . . but, once you start becoming acquainted with woven decorative trims, you will understand why the bands are often so simple in their structure.  Therefore, everything in this monograph can be woven on a simple 2-shaft loom or even an inkle loom. In addition to covering techniques for weaving decorative trim, there are sections additional sections, such as equipment, cording ideas, and instructions for creating fabric-covered cord.

This monograph, ISBN number 978-0-9842675-0-7, has been printed in color.  

Price – $18.95 (Plus, first class postage shipping & handling in United States- $2.00.  Total = $20.95 . . . Note:  Washington state residents – please add $1.63 for sales tax)

Please contact me if you live outside the United States for shipping costs.

    This monograph is great- I got so inspired I warped my inkle loom and wove trim….even inventing some ‘new’ ones. I’m looking forward to subsequent volumes!

      That’s great, Jean! i would love to see your ‘new’ trims! There are so many possibilities . . . which is why I need to do a follow-up . . . plus, I need to work on new designs incorporating cording from my braiding machine!

  3. Hello,
    Congratulations on your new monograph.
    I would like to buy the book, but it is easier for me to send you the money by Western union as I live in Dubai, UAE
    The delivery will be made to a US address.

    Hi Robyn,

    I read in the John C. Campbell Folkschool catalogue (a magical place – I’ve been there several times) that you “are inspired by the many ways to create versatile fabrics from a single warp.” Do you have any monographs or articles on that subject?

    I am the neighborhood volunteer weaving teacher of children here just outside of Annapolis, MD. Having some good information on this topic would be helpful.

    Thanks loads,

    Gwen Rector
