It came about in the timeless void, that four inquisitive but bodiless entities found a pocket of intriguing vibrations. Investigating more closely, they perceived symbols, archetypes, languages, numbers, forms and colors…all rich with diverse meanings utterly alien to them but nevertheless very charming. These beautiful and enticing bits and bobs were human thoughts pouring into the void from somewhere beyond .

To Our Kind Supporters,
You’ve been with us for so many ups and downs with this deck, including the major delays due to COVID’s impact on print houses. Thank you for continuing to support us. We are reaching out to you now to keep you informed and involved in our path going forward.
As many of you saw, we were so excited a few months ago when it looked like we FINALLY had a printer ready to make the magnetic-closure boxes that are the last piece of the KW puzzle before it goes out as a complete product. Our hopes were dashed when we received the boxes and they were not what we ordered, and not what YOU paid for. Now, with the United States printing landscape still so uncertain, we’ve had to face the hard reality that we may have to wait at least 6 months before we can be reasonably confident of finding another printer who will be able to complete the boxes. This realization comes as we are already in possession of the “meat” of the project – the cards and guidebooks are all printed, sorted, and ready for you.
Our commitment to you is to keep you informed while we make strides toward order fulfillment.
Thanks again for your support and participation. You are foremost in our minds going forward on this project as we face this new reality. Please, as always, reach out to us if you want more information.
The Oracle of Knotty Weave team.
We are pleased to announce that
production for The Oracle of Knotty Weave has begun!
Due to COVID-19 slow downs and closures,
the Knotty Weave box, guidebook, deck and cards are being printed at separate locations.
Once they are received by the publisher, assembly and fulfillment will commence.
Thank you for your continued support and patience.
