The WSSA keeps an extensive fiber library as well as a long list of fiber equipment. After you’ve been a member for three months, you are eligible to check out books and equipment.
Some other weaving libraries you might want to explore:
Complex Weavers (only members can check out books, but it’s fun to see what they have)
The library committee would also like to remind you of some of the wonderful resources available online:
- Handwoven Magazine’s Indexes – “These indexes provide past issue information presented by author/designer and by subject.” You can use these indexes to search for topics and then check the guild’s collection.
- Handweaving.net – Includes the Weaving Draft Archive which contains over 56713 hand weaving drafts and Griswold’s Digital Archive of Documents on Hand Weaving, Lace, and Related Topics – “a fascinating and useful library of more than 8000 high quality digital reproductions of original works including over 140,000 pages.”
- On-Line Digital Archive of Documents on Weaving and Related Topics – For example, 2 of Peter Collingwood’s books are here, in their entirety– scroll down to ‘Collingwood‘.
