ALL WEAVING SUPPLIES PROVIDED
Start with a small loom sampler then go to a copper pipe loom.
The tapestry technique is unique because horizontal weft yarns are woven between the fixed vertical warps only as far as each color is required, creating a design that is an integral part of the fabric.
It should not be confused with needlepoint or crewel embroidery, where yarn is applied to an already existing fabric structure. However, Myla often adds embroidered and quilted embellishments to her work for heightened surface interest.
In addition, Myla periodically uses the eccentric weft weaving technique in which the weft yarn moves away from its horizontal orientation to flow in arcs or at acute angles to the warp, for additional depth and texture affects.
