thread art

Hi all,
I am building my first of what will be at least a few rods. After doing some research I have decided to add a weave to the rods instead of regular wrapping. I absolutely love Doc Ski's work and would like to find out if there is a place to go to get the patterns, or if there is a computer program that can take a picture and transfer it into a pattern. Also if anyone knows of a jig for weaving that holds the threads that I could purchase or preferably build please let me know that as well.

Thanks in advance for the info.

Nwflycaster,

Doc Ski has several books out on the subject that may help you and I know there are software programs that will do what you want. As for thread weavers, Renzetti has one out called the Wonder Weaver and I know there are several others out there. Check your Private Messages, I sent you some more info.

Charlie.
