Weavers and spinners are truly an international audience. I have begun to compile a dictionary of weaving terminology, so that we can all communicate better with each other. Can you help expand our weaving and spinning related definitions? Do you know the correct translation for a weaving term in another language? Please contact me to submit your information to our site. The data supplied will be added to our Textile Dictionary. Many thanks to all of our Contributors.
