I have known my old weaving friend Karen for more than 10 years since when she was an English teacher at Soochow University.  After she retired, she returned to the USA to take care of her father. Then she came back to Taiwan to live permanently after her father passed away. She comes to Founder-Tek from time to time to choose yarns and see what I am doing. We always have happy "weaver's talk" to exchange ideas...etc. Thank you to Karen for sharing her weaving journey with us. She would love to meet weavers in Taiwan. If anyone would like to meet her, please contact us and we will be happy to forward your message to her.

你好,我是Karen Cisney。我的織布之旅從2007年開始。
那時,我在紐西蘭騎自行車之旅途中,參觀了南島ASHFORD的展示商店。
原本,我進去只打算買一台紡紗機,但最後還買了一台Ashford Knitter (折疊式簡易織布機)。
然後就在那展示商店內開始織布。
看到布料從我手指的一些簡單動作中流出,真是不可思議。我被迷住了!!
當時那條藍色圍巾並不漂亮,但這是我織布的一個開始。
其實,在我購買了摺疊式簡易織布機之前的幾年,
我有一本黛博拉·錢德勒(Deborah Chandler)的「學習編織-learning to weave」
我讀了他兩遍,夢想著有一天會織布。我知道會有這個可能性。

在2010年農曆新年期間,我在美國俄勒岡州的尤金市,決定去「尤金紡織品中心」參觀,只是想看看他們擁有什麼。
很短時間內,坐在落地機上。與折疊式簡易織布機相比,落地機複雜很多,我用3/2 絲光棉在同一個經線內織出三個餐墊。
這也是我第一次使用整經架和繞線器。

現在,我的織布世界正在擴大:更多令人興奮的工具,能將紗線整經在一台大型織機上。織布的魔力剛剛擴大。
現在,我有兩種織機:折疊式簡易織布機織機和落地機。
我在2006年購買了第一期的《手工編織》,看著它然後做夢。
現在,我訂閱了這本雜誌,看到了許多織布的可能性,有些可以馬上嘗試,
有些還會是很遠的將來:斜紋,雙重織,overshot,deflected double weave 等等。

我想將它們全部試試,並了解經緯線如何在織機上交錯以創造出那些驚人的圖案和顏色。
手工織布一期的標題為「贏得項目」以供學習,我已經做好了準備。
自學斜紋似乎是為我設計的:令人難以置信的是,同一個經線,穿綜相同之下,居然可以織出6種圖案不同的毛巾!
我必須自己織過它才能相信,這是真的,就像是魔術一般。

下一個冒險是將斜紋織與『色彩和編織』效果交織在一起。
同一塊布的正反看起來不同?同樣,我必須織過它才能看到。
一面為白色,綠色和藍色條紋,另一面是三種顏色的複雜鋸齒形圖案。

然後是Overshot和絲光棉的挑戰。
我用Fiberworks PCW軟體,我調整了尺寸,並用金色絲光棉編織。
多年來,我的許多織布都是使用各種尺寸的絲光棉織作完成的。
3/2到20/2的許多美麗顏色和紗線尺寸使它成為桌墊,圍巾,披肩,餐墊等的理想選擇。FT20.jpg

當我在俄勒岡州尤金市的時候,工作室中的另一位織作者工正在織結婚禮物:羊毛雙層織毯。
難以置信! 如何在一台織機上一次織出兩層?終於是時候嘗試雙重織了。
詹妮弗·摩爾(Jennifer Moore)的書《織女的工作室:Doubleweave》這是我的指南。
看到兩個不同顏色的,單層從上到下改變位置,
在側面閉合併用填充物塞滿佈料製成小袋,以及創造出兩種顏色的紗羅編織,我感到非常有趣。FT15.jpg

謝謝您跟隨我到目前為止的織布之旅。
如果您是織作者,那麼您將發現更多的領域。
如果您想在織布領域中加入我的行列,我會很高興認識您。

如果您還不是織作織者,FounderTek(幅新手織)工作室的Deland (廖小姐)是一個很棒、經驗豐富且耐心的嚮導。
她曾帶領三個朋友和我經歷了為期兩天的學習,學習如何在簡易織布機上織布。
我的朋友們都對他們的作品感到非常高興和滿意。

作者原文

Hi.  I’m Karen Cisney.  My weaving journey began in 2007.  I was bicycling in New Zealand and visited the Ashford Handicrafts showroom in Ashburton, South Island.  I went in intending to buy a spinning wheel and did, but much to my surprise, also came away with an Ashford Knitter’s Loom.  Right there in the showroom I began weaving.  It was magic to see cloth flow out of a few simple movements of my fingers.  I was hooked.  That blue scarf wasn’t pretty, but it was a beginning.

Several years before I bought the Knitter’s Loom, I had a copy of Deborah Chandler’s Learning to Weave.  I read and reread it and dreamed of weaving someday. And I wondered if it would ever happen. 

At Chinese New Year 2010 I was in Eugene, Oregon, USA and decided to visit Eugene Textiles Center “just to see” what they had.  In a very short while, I found myself seated at a Schacht Baby Wolf loom. It was a big step up from the Knitter’s Loom, but with the owner, Suzie, at my elbow I wove a set of placemats in huck weave using 3/2 pearl cotton. Three different placements on one warp! That was also my first experience using a warping board and a bobbin winder.  Now my weaving world was expanding: more exciting tools and putting warp on a big loom.  The magic of weaving just expanded.  Now I had two looms: the Knitter’s loom and the Baby Wolf loom.  

I had bought my first issue of Handwoven in 2006, looked at it and dreamed.  Now, I subscribed to the magazine and saw many weaving possibilities, some within reach and some far in the future: twill, double weave, overshot, deflected double weave, and more.  I wanted to weave them all and to understand just how threads interlaced on a loom to create those astounding patterns and colors.

One Handwoven issue was titled Winning Projects to learn by and I was ready for it.  Teach Yourself Twill seemed made for me: unbelievable that 6 different towels could be woven on one warp! I had to weave it to believe it.  And I did.  It was truly magic. 

The interlacement of threads in twill with color-and-weave effects was the next adventure.  How could two sides of the same cloth look so different?  Again, I had to weave it to see.  One side was white, green and blue stripes.  Yet the other side was a complex zig zag pattern of the three colors.  

Then came the challenge of Overshot and pearl cotton.  Using the Fiberworks PCW weaving program, I adapted the border of larger overshot runner and wove it in gold and raisin pearl cotton.  Many of my projects through the years have been woven using various sizes of pearl cotton.  The many beautiful colors and yarn sizes from 3/2 to 20/2 make it a perfect choice for table runners, scarves, shawls, place mats, and more.

While I was in Eugene, Oregon, one of the other weavers in the studio was weaving a wedding gift: a double weave blanket in wool.  Incredible! How could two layers be woven at one time and on one loom?  Finally it was time to try double weave.  Jennifer Moore’s book The Weaver’s Studio: Doubleweave was my guide this time.  I had so much (very focused) fun seeing two different colored, separate layers change places top to bottom, close at the sides and stuff the cloth with filler to make pouches, and also create two-colored leno weave. 

Thank you for following my weaving journey so far.  If you are a weaver, you know there is more territory to explore.  If you would like some company on the adventure, I’d be happy to meet you. If you are not yet a weaver, Deland at Founder Tek weaving studio, is a wonderful, experienced and patient guide.  She led three friends and I through two days of learning to weave on the rigid heddle loom.  My friends were so happy and satisfied with their creations
