Twill Thrills is the fourth book in the Best of Weaver's series: collections of treasured articles from 11 years of Weaver's magazine. This volume is a comprehensive study of twill—new twills and old twills, plain twills and fancy twills, twills on four shafts and twills on more.
You will find everything you need to know to design and weave twill fabrics: straight, point, broken, zigzag, diamond, mixed twills, and more; twill blocks for color and imagery; the new advancing twills; the new networked twills; and 36 unique projects with complete, easy-to-follow directions.
Twill is a miracle weave! You can make any kind of fabric—from rugs to gossamer scarves—in twill. Its floats show any fiber—from shiny silks to nubbly novelties—to best advantage. The number of possible twill designs is truly infinite, especially if you use the ground-breaking new techniques of network drafting and advancing twills. This book is the only source that has it all! Edited by Madelyn Van Der Hoogt
