This is a fabric design software, to aid hand weavers in creating textile weaving patterns. Supports any number of warp and weft threads, treadles, and harnesses. Runs on Windows, Linux, and OS/X.
- Design fabric for handweaving
- Supports liftplan and tie-up
- Customisable colour palettes
This project has great potential as weaving software. I write this as a weaver. What's missing is controls to give the weaver design flexibility, such as being able to select multiple treadles at once, or being able to start in the drawdown with a picture, given a set threading. The palette needs to be more user flexible rather than having preset colors. Anybody who knows how to weave can do a limited design, save it, and set about weaving. It's a great beginning. It's got far to go. Feel free to contact me.
