Maryanne Moodie is the maker to watch. Since her first book debuted in 2016, both Moodie and weaving have continued to grow in popularity. In Maryanne Moodie’s Modern Weaver, there is a wealth of information focused on color theory, designed to help readers better select their own palettes for their custom creations. With detailed instructions and photography for each project, this book is both beautiful and informative. And with projects that explore gradients and ombre effects, as well as advice on how to tackle even the boldest of color choices, there’s enough to keep even the most advanced weavers engaged.
Weaving came back in style a few of years ago, and it’s clear the trend isn't going away any time soon. Moodie’s first book, On the Loom, was at the forefront of this revival, and her second book will deliver even more of what makers love. Her projects are accessible no matter your skill level, and her exploration of color theory gives more depth to the projects. Modern Weaver delivers the well-designed projects makers are looking for, ranging from wall hangings to pillow covers, keychains to laptop sleeves to framed art, and that will have them weaving in no time.
