Snake twill and 8 row of broken twill

Antoinette Olsen, handweaver , and my speciality is the warp-weighted loom

I am a skilled weaver who can weave on the warp-weighted loom, modern floor looms, tapestry looms, rigid heddle looms and tablet looms. My favorite looms are the old warp-weighted looms and old tapestry looms. I like the old weaving techniques, and I am full of respect for the persons which was able to weave difficult and beautiful patterns on the old looms in ancient times.

I draw my own weaving patterns for tapestry weaving and for the twill weaving. I also combine weaving patterns made for todays floor looms with the old weaving technique. I love to dye yarn with different kinds of plants and then use it in weaving. I have written one book in norwegians and one book in english about how to weave twill and tabby on the warp-weighted loom. My books are sold world wide since 2014. The reason why I wrote the books, was to keep the old weaving techniques alive today and in the future, and to honor the old weaving masters who lived in the viking age and before.
