"Weaving with Echo and Iris"

I've just this minute received my copy of "Weaving with Echo and Iris" by Marion Stubenitsky.  I'm in heaven.  You might not hear from me for a long time. 

Marion explains in the Preface that Echo and Iris are mythological figures and also refer to echo threadings and iridescence.  Iris is the messenger of the gods as well as the personification of the rainbow.  It pretty much sums up a first glance in the book.


  1. Hi Diane,
    The book sounds really interesting and I'd like to know your opinion once you've had a chance to read it.

  2. I ordered my copy two days ago and eagerly waiting for my copy !

  3. I got my copy in only 8 days. That was fast... I have only had a quick flip so far, but I can see why everyone is so excited about this book. Its an amazing study of work!

  4. You aren't kidding there. Even fanning the pages creates pattern on the edges.
    One thing it took me a bit to sort out, threadings start from the left.
