Saami Band Weaving Drafts

Sami Rigid Heddle Band Weaving

These Sami style weaving drafts can be woven using a single or double hole rigid heddle loom. The band weaving patterns are woven using a pickup technique over a tabby ground warp.

I've had an interest in weaving, looms, yarns and textiles since I was a small child. I learned to knit, crochet, sew, do needlepoint at my mother's knee. My grandmother was a Saami from northern Norway. I am very interested in studying more about traditional Saami and Finnish style weaving and handicrafts. Paivi Suomi
