Reading List

Here's a look at my reading list:

These are books that have been mentioned on various online discussion groups (WeaveTech, Natural Dyes, etc.). I put them on my Amazon wish list, and ta-dah, birthday gifts.

My father-in-law is a professor of electrical engineering and computer science, and told me he nearly kept "Jacquard's Web" to read himself before sending it to me. I've put his name on the library card right after me and DH.

The Emery book looks like it'll be a great addition to the weaving library, and the Cardon book seems to be the best of the books on natural dyes, as it not only includes history and traditions, but also the chemistry behind the magic of the dyepot.

Altogether, nearly 10 pounds of printed material!

I loved the Jaquard's Web. Lots of non weaving stuff, but fascinating anyway.

That particular Natural Dyes book has been on my wish list for a VERY long time, but every time I look for it, it is very expensive. Sigh! One day, though, I will have a copy of it.
