The Art of Braiding, Nylon Reins

This book is more than Nylon Reins. There are several different reins plus a mecate, a 28 strand flat braid for leather. Most of the skills in this book are not used in the standard way we braid and plait leather and rawhide. A 12 strand wooven button braided as part of these reins is illustrated and instructed in detail in this book.

As with our other books, there will be a pre-printing discount of $10 on this new book which will remain in effect until we begin publication.

The pre-printing price is $59;  thereafter, the price will be $69.  You can use the link below to order.

 

 

"The Art of Braiding, Nylon Reins"

 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 Edition.  

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 and instruction.   
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.
