Announcement october 5, 2018
It isn’t your imagination, the website for orders is currently not accepting any.
There have been some ongoing issues with the print-on-demand company and at this moment, I can’t give you a date when you can order this book again. I’m working hard on solutions, so keep an eye on this page and my Tapestry Picks email for updated information.
If you ordered a book in September and you haven’t received it, please contact me HERE.
Untangled: A Crafty Sheep's Guide to Tapestry Weaving is ready! Currently the book is out of stock, but you can visit the website here: https://craftysheeppress.com/.
The book talks about concepts like weft tension, meet and separate, and split weft for straight lines. You'll find basics like how to make a butterfly and some excellent ideas for decreasing tails in your weaving.
It is not a comprehensive technique book (that is coming later). It is an adorable and fun look at a few tapestry tips. The illustrations are so great, you might want one for the children in your life.
Illustrations are done by Molly McNeece.
When will I be able to order Untangled?
As of October 2018 I don’t have a date. I am looking for another printer and the process may take a couple months. It will be worth the wait!
Can I learn all the basic tapestry techniques from this book?
No! This book is not a techniques book. I am writing one of those, but that 300-pager won’t be released until 2020 through a major US publisher. This book is a fun look at some important tapestry concepts with some very cute illustrations.
Why can’t I get this on Amazon?
This book is a wonderful little hardback. Amazon only sells paperbacks in this particular way. Publishing is complicated and for right now, this is my decision. You’ll have to order through the Craftysheeppress.com website.
International shipping from LuLu was really expensive. Will this change?
Yes. When the book is reissued, international shipping will be less expensive.
