Hemstitching is a common finishing technique in weaving, protecting the weft and managing fringe. but it can be much more. In this video, weaver and teacher Sara Bixler will show you how you can use hemstitching to add interest to the body of your fabric, as a way to enhance handwoven lace, as a lace technique in itself, and as a way to add color and graphic elements to your weaving. With Sara's help, you'll make hemstitching a new and powerful part of your design toolkit.
