Discover all five issues of Handwoven, exactly as they were printed in 1996.

Here's a look at the weaving tips, tricks, stories, and more you will find in these issues:

January/February 1996: Learn everything you need to know about fulling and felting handwoven wool fabrics from traditional waulking to fulling using a washing machine. Projects include delightful felted boots, a waulked blanket, and a jacket inspired by Homer's "wine-dark sea."

March/April 1996: Punch up your plain-weave repertoire with the clever projects and techniques featured in this issue. Learn to weave charted designs in pick-up broché, and probe the possibilities of plain weave with a swatch collection by Sharon Alderman.

May/June 1996: Explore stripes and plaids with this issue dedicated to these two versatile patterns. Projects include a pillowcase inspired by colonial cloth and interlocking doubleweave placemats and napkins. Also in this issue are an article on lace plaids and a section on summertime weaving.

September/October 1996: Take a woven tour of Scotland and Norway with this issue featuring Scottish tartans and Nordic weaving. Weave an elegant chenille tartan throw, and learn the basics of Norwegian Danskbrogd with this issue.

November/December 1996: Add new dimensions to your weaving with creases, puckers, and pleats using collapse weave and high-twist yarns. Also included in this issue are a section on tapestry weaving and an article on deciphering old weaving drafts.
