Twill fabric is found around the world and throughout history, and no wonder! From its lovely drape to its shaft-thrifty and seemingly endless patterning possibilities, twill is perhaps the most versatile of weave structures. In TotallyTwill: The Basics, master weaver Robyn Spady shows you how to mix and match twill threadings, tie-ups, and treadling to create a profusion of patterns. Plus, you'll get a handout that will take you through drafts, tie-ups, and treadling variations for a dozen different kinds of twills.

Robyn is a frequent contributor to Handwoven magazine. She lives in Bremerton, Washington.


Twill thrill!

“I learned more about twills as well as using a multi shaft loom than expected. Robyn has a great presentation style that does not leave the beginner wondering “what?”. Thank you for that! My journey is young yet but I am stoked for more!” - Marsha Gallacher

Basic Twill with Robyn Spady

“Fantastic! I've been weaving for 3 years, trying desperately to understand some of the weaving language around twills, and what they all mean. THIS course set me straight and I feel like it's the piece that was missing for me to 'get' patterns.” - Bev Hawkins

Robyn and Twills are terriffic!

“Robyn Spady is an excellent instructor. Her explanations are clear and succinct. The combination of diagrams, woven examples and Robyn weaving at the loom enabled me to grasp all she was teaching quickly. In little time, I gained a much better understanding of twill weaves now. Many thanks!” - MARTHA NARRO
