I
sometimes wonder if weavers don’t owe Marguerite Porter Davison more than weeven think we do. When I was looking for a history of the use of twills by hand-weavers, I found only in her
A Handweaver’s Pattern Book 
the clear implication that you can thread one of an amazing number of twillls and then, by varying the treadling,weave an even more amazing number of patterns. Since the middle of the last century,weavers have been putting this awareness to use. This eBook gives you the tools toextend the twills in Davison’s book along with those in many other resources into originaldesigns. Each project in this eBook presents a type of twill with how-to information fordrafting and designing it in addition to a beautiful project to weave. A type of twilldevloped very recently but not considered suitable for four shafts is also included herein Barbara Elkins’s 4-shaft advancing-twill adaptation. From simple twill stripes to pick--upmock-satin damask, this book has what you need to make other weavers exclaim whenthey see your fabrics: “Surely that took more than four shafts!”
