Description

Le Fléché Démêlé (Fingerweaving Untangled: An Illustrated Beginner's Guide) is the French language edition of the 64-page how-to book written and published by Manitoba fiber artist Carol James. Known as a weaver and teacher, Carol James has created a carefully written step-by-step manual for the beginner and the more advanced weaver. The technique of fingerweaving can be found in Haudenosaunee, Métis, Sami and other Indigenous cultures. Fingerweaving is also called free end braiding or ceinture flechee because the warp and weft are continuous. The book is divided into chapters that cover materials, a beginner's and advanced methods, tips, fringe twisting, measuring out a sash, and problem-solving the beginning, middle, and end row techniques. Traditional patterns are included. These are Acadian, Assomption, Flame, Arrowhead, Chevron, Diamond, Diagonal and Vertical Stripes, Stipple, and Diamond. The book layout is simple and appealing with colour photographs and diagrams for each step in the weaving process. Colour graph patters are included. This book is recommended for school and public libraries.
