Monograph: 6-Holed Tablet Weaving

Bonita (Bonnie) Datta wrote several articles for TWIST in 1998-2000. Her monograph on weaving with 6-hole tablets began as notes for a class she taught at HGA Convergence in 2000. In 2007 she revised those notes and made them available on her website as a monograph. Bonnie is no longer tablet weaving but in January 2016, working from her records, she added images and drafts for 128 patterns. This 2016 version of the monograph is posted here.

We thank Bonnie for her work and her permission to share it freely. TWIST members will see a printed copy of the monograph plus Bonnie's collection of woven samples as Library items available for one-month loan. Anyone can download Bonnie's monograph from this page.
