    Weaving Designs by Bertha Gray Hayes

    Miniature Overshot Patterns
    This book features the original sample collection and handwritten drafts of the talented, early 20th century weaver, Bertha Gray Hayes of Providence, Rhode Island. She designed and wove miniature overshot patterns for four-harness looms that are creative and unique. The book contains color reproductions of 72 original sample cards and 20 recently discovered patterns, many shown with a picture of the woven sample, and each with computer-generated drawdowns and drafting patterns. Her designs are unique in their asymmetry and personal in her use of name drafting to create the designs.
    Bertha Hayes attended the first nine National Conferences of American Handweavers (1938-1946). She learned to weave by herself through the Shuttle-Craft home course and was a charter member of the Shuttle-Craft Guild, and authored articles on weaving.    hardcover, 208 pages

    Comments about Weaving Designs by Bertha Gray Hayes:

    If you're not familiar with weaving overshot, you may want to look elsewhere for techniques and tips. This book is essentially a collection of small overshot designs, showing woven samples and drafts. It is charming and inspiring, and you will certainly bookmark many pages and pull out yarn to try some out.
