Tablet Weavers' International Studies & Techniques

TWIST is a volunteer-run organization that promotes and supports tablet weaving all over the world. Also known as card weaving, tablet weaving requires little equipment, yet it offers weavers the flexibility to produce remarkably complex pieces such as those displayed on this page.

TWIST members share inspiration and technical information through our journal, which is published three times each year. Learn more about member benefits on our Join or Renew page.
