Update June 2019
Untangled will be ready to go later this summer. Watch for an announcement in July about where to order your copy.
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?
You will be able to order the book from my website in August of 2019.
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.

Once upon a time in a workshop in Holland, Michigan, a student named Marg gave me an idea. She said, "Rebecca, why don't you put all these little tips into a book so we can have them all in one place?" That idea rolled around for quite awhile and a year or two later I was hanging out with my favorite children's book illustrator, artist, and art teacher, Molly McNeece, and it occurred to me that we could collaborate on this book and the results would be extraordinary.
