Bibliography for Tablet Weaving
Very complete bibliographies for tablet weaving exist on-line and may be accessed
through the TWIST (Tablet Weavers International Studies & Techniques) web site.
Here you will find links to Peter Collingwood's ongoing
bibliography on tablet weaving; also Carolyn Priest-Dorman's bibliography of tablet
weavings before 1600, and Nancy Spies' bibliography of medieval tablet weavings. In
addition, this site is the complete resource for tablet weavers -- a gallery of
weavings by members, connections to members web sites, and related techniques. The
site is maintained by Janis Saunders, the editor of the TWIST journal.
