Indexes– for the Tie-up, the Guild’s newsletter since 1950, an index is available for all significant articles, e.g., weaving drafts, guild and weaving history.  You will find this index on the Tie-upindex page in the member’s section of this website.

There are print indexes for a selection of magazines on textile arts available in the Library: If you’re researching a specific topic, artist, etc., please contact the librarian to make arrangements to use them. In addition, Handwovenmagazine has electronic indexes available on the Interweave website for 2005-2016: Go to and put the term Handwoven indexes in the search box.

Another source for research in magazines is Art Index, which includes magazines on arts and craft in general that may periodically include articles on weaving (e.g., American Craft). This database is available from the Los Angeles Public Library. Contact the Librarian if you want to learn more about using this database. –
