Playing with drafts is a fun way to take a project and make it your own. Even small changes to treadling, tie-up, and/or threading can make a big difference. In this May/June 2020 issue of Handwoven we’re celebrating the ways weavers take drafts and make them into something new sometimes by adjusting drafts and, sometimes, by combining multiple drafts to create a new blended draft. Also in this issue, Tom Knisely writes about how garden sheds can become the perfect outdoor weaving studios, Rebecca Fox’s discusses her adventures in designing and weaving waistcoats for her son’s graduation, and Deborah Heyman explains how to mix colors in weaving to get the effect you want.
