by Eveline MacLeod and Daniel W. MacInnes • photos • 180 pages
AN AVID WEAVER, Eveline MacLeod’s life has been inextricably woven into the art and the craft of Cape Breton weaving for more than 60 years. She became an ardent student of the art and a teacher of the craft, and has traced its roots from the glens of Cape Breton to the Highlands of Scotland and beyond.
She shares her lifetime of researching and collecting the history, methods, patterns, and people of Cape Breton’s considerable tapestry of practical and ornamental weaving, fibre art and crafts.
