Weaving Books and Magazines


We have current and back issues of Handwoven in stock. And, while not technically a magazine, we keep all available issues of Weaver’s Craft in stock. Written by Jean Scorgie, a past editor of Handwoven, each issue of this gem is like having a weaving teacher at your elbow.

The weaving shelf is stocked with old favorites and new releases. We also have a shop library that has copies of weaving books going back to the 1800’s that is helpful to consult when you are working on a project. You may not check out or purchase books from the library, but you are welcome to use them as reference books in the shop. We are putting our library on line at aNobii. Joining is simple, then search under friends for joan@heritagespinning.com. You’ll see all the books we have listed so far.

Here’s an example of the kinds of weaving books we have in stock.
