Tutorials and how-tos

Here I will collect links to all my posts which are tutorials or how-tos in the widest sense. These are pages people might still find useful long after they diesappeared in the depths of the archives, so I’m trying to make them easy to find.

My new page all about needleweaving has links to my multipart tutorial about weaving on improvised looms, my stuff about needleweaving as an embroidery technique and lots of useful external links.
