Included are the basic
skills needed to braid all items plus material preparation,
cutting, platting, buttons, finishing, string/cutter beveler
plans and more.
The Art of Braiding, Revised Basics is the most important
book in the Art of Braiding series and is referred to
throughout the entire braiding book collection, as the basic
skills taught are those needed in order to braid any item.
Since teaching classes at the
Horse Expo in June, I have been leaning toward redoing the Basics
in the same form as our later books to improve clarity and understanding
by using new photographic illustrations and new text to reflect
these photos. Thus we are revising The Art of Braiding,
The Basics, to reflect these necessary changes. The
book is called The Art of Braiding The Basics, Third Revised
The 6 basic buttons are still
taught, but improved. An example is the addition of red
arrows to indicate where the last pass occurred in the previous
photo. This will help the braider keep his or her place
when braiding. No information had been removed, but the
book will be a few pages longer due to the additional photos
While we edit this new book we are adding to the index.
For those who own the Revised and Second Revised editions, the
index pages will remain the same, but there will be added page
numbers referred to that reflect the new Third Edition.
