Rigid Heddle Online Tutorials

Recent discussions on Braids and Bands on yahoogroups

Recent discussions have focused on rigid heddle band weaving, including two hole rigid heddles and an on-line tutorial by Susan Foulkes.

If you are not a member of the Braids and Bands yahoogroup, you'll need to join the group (free) by going to the link above and requesting to join.

When signing up I recommend you select the "Daily Digest" mode to receive messages. The messages will be gathered in one group of messages each day or each 25 messages what ever happens first, and sent to your email. Or you can elect to read online only.

When you are approved for group you can then access the files area to get to the online tutorial files
From the group homepage,
Go to Files
Go to Online Tutorials folder
Go to Swedish Woven Bands

There are the files created by Susan Foulkes which are free for downloading.

When printing these PDF be sure the "Scaling" option of printing is set for "Fit to Printable Area" so that each page will print without top or bottom being cutoff. The PDF are formatted for UK sized paper so this adjustment makes it work on USA sized paper.(ignore if you use UK size paper)

Braids and Bands on yahoogroups is a service of The Braid Society UK (

This group is one finest and most informative on all of the yahoogroups I am subscribed to and I recommend it wholeheartedly.

Have a good day!
