About the Author

Peggy Osterkamp - Bio from Peggy's website

Peggy Osterkamp’s special skill is making the richness of her training and experience accessible to students. In the series, Peggy Osterkamp’s New Guide to Weaving, she presents a wealth of weaving knowledge and research, much of it never available before in the United States.

Once an apprentice to Jim Ahrens in a production studio, Osterkamp has introduced hundreds of students to weaving theory and production weaving. She is also a textile scholar, and offers individual and group weaving programs throughout the country.

Her newest book, Weaving for Beginners, was published in 2010. It is all the beginner needs to know–for both Back-to-Front and Front-to-Back warping the loom. Plus chapters on computers, drafting, sett, selvedges–everything! It has received rave reviews from the weaving magazines, beginning weavers, as well as professionals.

The first book, How to Wind a Warp and Use a Paddle, explains how to make warps that will weave smoothly and easily. The second book in the series, Warping Your Loom and Tying On New Warps guides you through every step of beaming your warp and threading the loom. Book #3, Weaving and Drafting Your Own Cloth, explains thoroughly how to weave efficiently, use shuttles, make good selvedges, finishing your cloth, and much more.

Having her books at your loom is like having a patient, knowledgeable teacher at your side.
