Sarah Saulson, Handweaver
For many years, my projects have been published in Handwoven Magazine and other Interweave Press books. My column in Handwoven, “Now We Are Eight” was designed to help weavers transition from simple weaving to more complex projects making use of eight-shaft looms. These looms provide weavers with more potential for complex interlacements of warp and weft. With the column, I was able to bring my process-oriented sensibility to a broader weaver audience. I wanted weavers to be able to go beyond the step-by-step instructions for creating the cloth to have a good grasp of the logic behind the relationship of the cloth’s warp and weft. Working with editor Madelyn vanderHoogt was a pleasure. She knows more about weave structure than anyone I have ever met and she is ever enthusiastic about sharing her knowledge.
