Tabletwoven Brocade

Has anyone out there done tabletwoven brocade? Any tips? I have Collingwood's tabletweaving book, but are there some other good resources for this?

I'm doing a small amount. I've seen some amazing work by a weaver at Pennsic though. Ravelry.com, Weavolution.com, and those awesome tutorials by Wormspit on http://www.wormspit.com/brocade.htm the the video/articles he did for http://www.weavezine.com/content/tablet-woven-brocade. This last link is just the best out there that I've found so far but I hope to find more:>.

"Wormspit" == oakenking I know I'd rather be known as the latter than the former... ;-)

Very cool. He goes by Wormspit on Ravelry where I have enjoyed some of his posts. Will have to look up the other as well.

The book you want is Ecclesiastical Pomp and Aristocratic Circumstance by Nancy Spies. Naturally, it is out of print and I think Nancy has gotten the last of it out of her basement, so its availability is dodgy.

You're not going to believe this, but I found it on Amazon! Thanks for the recommendation!

I'll second this recommendation. Glad you could find it!

It has been a while since I did any but one tip is that you will need a thicker brocading thread than you think you will. 8-> What I did to get the right ballance was to warp up longer than I needed and do some experimenting. I ended up needing twice the brocade thread thickness than I anticipated. So I used multiple strands.
