Complex Results Using Simple Structures


Rosalie Neilson loves using color and geometric design in her weavings, her specialty being rep weave. An avid designer and teacher, Rosalie was featured in a 2-hour DVD by Interweave Press entitled “Rep Weave.” She publishes regularly in weaving and braiding journals and maintains an active teaching schedule throughout the United States, Canada, and England.

Her interest in mathematics lead her to develop the 1,024 four- block symmetric motifs, in addition to the 1,157 unique 2-color patterns for the kumihimo braid structure Kongo Gumi. She recently published her kumihimo designs in the book Kongo Gumi:  A Cacophony of Spots – Coils – Zags – Lines.  

Rosalie’s current book in progress is entitled “An Exaltation of Blocks.” She announced recently that it will be ready to launch at her conference class in Houston!
