Weaver's Journal Magazine

Camilla Valley Farm Weavers' Supply is pleased to offer a collection of Weaver's Journal back issues. We have a number of individual copies for the last few years of the magazine as well as a very limited number of sets that include 25+ issues of the magazine from the beginning back in July 1976, which we are selling as a group. These Weaver's Journal Sets are available on a first-come basis.

The Weaver's Journal was published four times a year and was an excellent source of information, ideas and inspiration for weavers worldwide. It lasted a decade from 1976 to it's final issue in the Summer of 1986 and over the years has seen contributions by well known experts in the field of weaving such as Clotilde Varrett, Jack Lenor Larsen, Janet Meany, Allen Fannin, Madelyn van der Hoogt and Else Regensteiner.

NEW! The Weaver's Journal - Ten Year Cumulative Index 1976-1986 is now available to help you organize your Weaver's Journal magazine collection.

Note that we also stock the current and back issues of Handwoven, Spin-Off, Vav Magasinet and Weaver's Craft magazine as well as Knitter's, Vogue Knitting and Interweave Knits.
