DIY WEAVING HANDBOOK
by Su Mwamba/TangleCrafts
(omnibus edition containing selected contents from 2009/2010 Telaic Fantasy zines)

Weaving is one of the most simple & accessible crafts out there, with results from very basic DIY looms just as impressive as anything storebought. In this handbook you will find all the info you need to get started - you can begin with weaving your own membership card to the DIY weaving club! Free with your zine is a professionally printed mini notecard featuring a portion from one of my own weavings on picture side (exact card design you receive will vary) and a blank reverse for your note. However it is also just about the right size to be woven as your membership card - your choice!

The zine is A6 (approx. quarter-size) and 30 pages long, including manila covers. It is printed in full colour throughout on recycled paper (exact paper type may vary depending on what I have to hand when you place your order). The centre pages are printed on label paper, and invite you to join a mail art project hosted by TangleCrafts: The Handwoven Postcard project. You can probably guess what it involves... ;)

Zine is hand-folded and hand-bound with a simple saddle-stitch in cotton thread. It is packaged in a plain cellophane packet, and has a mini design card glued to the front cover. You can choose whether your cover has the purple or the orange/brown design from the drop-down list above. If you choose 'Surprise me!' you could receive either one, or possibly a cover featuring one of my other design cards (not pictured).
