Weavers Launch (World Weaver Chronicles Book 1)
In tapestry weaving, weft yarns are typically discontinuous; the artisan interlaces each coloured weft back and forth in its own small pattern area. It is a plain weft-faced weave having weft threads of different colours worked over portions of the warp to form the design. Most weavers use a natural warp thread, such as wool, linen or cotton. The weft threads are usually wool or cotton, but may include silk, gold, silver, or other alternatives. The success of decorative tapestry can be partially explained by its portability Le Corbusier once called tapestries "nomadic murals".
In churches, they were displayed on special occasions. Tapestries were also draped on the walls of castles for insulation during winter, as well as for decorative display. In the Middle Ages and renaissance , a rich tapestry panel woven with symbolic emblems , mottoes , or coats of arms called a baldachin , canopy of state or cloth of state was hung behind and over a throne as a symbol of authority.
The iconography of most Western tapestries goes back to written sources, the Bible and Ovid 's Metamorphoses being two popular choices. Apart from the religious and mythological images, hunting scenes are the subject of many tapestries produced for indoor decoration. Tapestries have been used since at least Hellenistic times. Samples of Greek tapestry have been found preserved in the desert of Tarim Basin dating from the 3rd century BC. The form reached a new stage in Europe in the early 14th century AD.
The first wave of production occurred in Germany and Switzerland. Over time, the craft expanded to France and the Netherlands. The basic tools have remained much the same. In the 14th and 15th centuries, Arras , France was a thriving textile town. The industry specialised in fine wool tapestries which were sold to decorate palaces and castles all over Europe. Few of these tapestries survived the French Revolution as hundreds were burnt to recover the gold thread that was often woven into them.
Arras is still used to refer to a rich tapestry no matter where it was woven. Indeed, as literary scholar Rebecca Olson argues, arras were the most valuable objects in England during the early modern period and inspired writers such as William Shakespeare and Edmund Spenser to weave these tapestries into their most important works such as Hamlet and The Faerie Queen. By the 16th century, Flanders , the towns of Oudenaarde, Brussels , Geraardsbergen and Enghien had become the centres of European tapestry production. In the 17th century, Flemish tapestries were arguably the most important productions, with many specimens of this era still extant, demonstrating the intricate detail of pattern and colour embodied in painterly compositions, often of monumental scale.
In the 19th century, William Morris resurrected the art of tapestry-making in the medieval style at Merton Abbey. Kilims and Navajo rugs are also types of tapestry work. Traditional tapestries are still made at the factory of Gobelins and a few other old European workshops, which also repair and restore old tapestries. While tapestries have been created for many centuries and in every continent in the world, what distinguishes the contemporary field from its pre-World War II history is the predominance of the artist as weaver in the contemporary medium.
The Polish work submitted to the first Biennale, which opened in , was quite novel. Also art supplies in general were hard to acquire. Many Polish artists had learned to weave as part of their art school training and began creating highly individualistic work by using atypical materials like jute and sisal. There were many weavers in pre-war United States, but there had never been a prolonged system of workshops for producing tapestries. Therefore, weavers in America were primarily self-taught and chose to design as well as weave their art.
What this movement contributed to the newly realized field of art weaving, termed "contemporary tapestry", was the option for working with texture, with a variety of materials and with the freedom for individuality in design. In the s it became clear that the process of weaving weft-faced tapestry had another benefit, that of stability. The artists who chose tapestry as their medium developed a broad range of personal expression, styles and subject matter, stimulated and nourished by an international movement to revive and renew tapestry traditions from all over the world.
The Sandwich Critique Method
Boog had a miserable time against Jim Kaat, too. As far as Roenicke is concerned, Earl seems to have rushed to judgment. And by the way, on page 58 Weaver writes that Powell was 2-for against Lolich. Still not true. Boog was actually at his worst against Lolich before Weaver took over as Baltimore manager, going 3-for with two walks and no homers.
As far as Jim Kaat was concerned, Weaver was much quicker to shut down Powell. Boog had five hits all singles in 18 at-bats against Kaat under Weaver, with two walks; that includes a pinch-hit appearance and a time when Kaat faced him in relief. Boog was in the lineup in the American League playoff series game that Kaat started and stroked an RBI single his first time up; it was the first run of the game and held up as the game-winning hit.

Next we turn to page 41, and a discussion about Tom Shopay as Weaver writes about why he likes players who draw walks:. Shopay was a base-on-balls man.
His record in the minors showed it. But Tommy would press and keep swinging at those bad pitches. Shopay had four other plate appearances against Ryan off the bench, and walked in one of them. Shopay spent all of , and in the majors, playing very little. Maybe the reason Weaver remembers being so frustrated with Shopay was because he mis-evaluated him in the first place.
I remember a game in when Reggie Jackson was playing for the Orioles. Reggie had pretty good speed and he could steal a base. In this instance, Reggie was on first with two outs. A left-hander was pitching to Lee May. May hit a lot of home runs off lefties in his career, but Reggie decided to steal second. He made it, and he thought he made a good play, but the pitcher promptly walked May. I had wanted Lee to have a chance at winning the game in that spot, but the stolen base cost him the opportunity. And in fact, something completely contrary to this did happen.
I looked at all the games in — the only year Reggie played for the Orioles — in which Jackson stole a base he stole 28, including four games in which he stole two bases AND May walked he had 41, including three games in which he walked twice. I found May never walked after Jackson stole a base. But on September 4 , in the bottom of the seventh inning against the Yankees, Jackson drew a two-out walk off lefty Ken Holtzman with the Orioles trailing Jackson then stole second.
But this event, as described, never occurred. Mark Belanger hit well over. Belanger, a. Belanger did draw 10 walks off Ryan for a. But on September 10 , Weaver brought Kelly in to hit for Benny Ayala against Rozema with the bases loaded, and Kelly launched a grand slam that provided the wining runs. The three hits were home runs. Motton faced May only four times …with homers in both at-bats in a game in and one homer in two trips to the plate in a game in Griffin is hitting about. Griffin hit.
He went up against Palmer only once after that and struck out. This is something I did in September of Mark Belanger was a. I came up with this plan, which is still legal. When my team was on the road, I would list someone else as our leadoff hitter and shortstop. Often it was Royle Stillman, a young outfielder we had brought up from Rochester.
Stillman would bat in the top of the first, and then Belanger would go in to play shortstop in the bottom of the inning…. Stillman was four for nine in those games. Inventive Weaving on a Little Loom.
