FROM THE INSIDE OF THE DUST WRAPPER: "Mrs. Davison began her career at Berea College under the guidance of Mrs. Anna Ernberg when the latter was encouraging the mountain people to bring forth their traditional colonial weaving patterns. As Mrs. Ernberg's assistant, Mrs. Davison became thoroughly familiar with these well-established and long-loved patterns." FROM THE BACK COVER: A modern handbook of four-harness patterns for weavers of all types, whether amateur or professional. Contains Three Hundred and Forty Five threading directions ranging from simple twills to complicated techniques. All are small patterns which may be woven on a sixteen inch warp if so desired, except one chapter of very large patterns. Each design is given many treadlings. These are illustrated with over Twelve Hundred weavings ¿ all personally made. Directions are set down in a simple diagram. While the number of patterns is extensive, it is not exhaustive. It will serve to stimulate the inventive weaver, but gives a large amount of materials from which the average weaver may draw information than has ever before been presented. Where weavers have been given the impression that a complicated loom was necessary for some types of work, this puts no bounds to the field open to the weaver who uses a table loom, or any other type of four-harness loom. Weavers appreciate the simple diagram in which the directions for duplicating the designs are recorded. It is intended for visual guidance, even to those who do not read English, but sightless weavers are making their own directions in point-writing following this system. The tie-up of the treadles is given in a sequence which follows the threading draft, it facilitates the memorizing of treadlings, without which no speed in weaving can be accomplished. A valuable aid to teachers, occupational therapists, interior decorators, commercial weavers, as well as home weavers. Despite the cares of raising a family and of time generously given to numerous worthy causes, Mrs. Davison engaged extensively in weaving, teaching and lecturing. In later years much of her efforts were devoted to writing and publishing. She was an active member of the Associated Hand Weavers and of the Pennsylvania Guild of Craftsmen.
