5.0 out of 5 stars Jane Redman A Fantastic teacher for the skilled and unskilled in weaving!! Jan. 14 2013
By Andrea M. Germann - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
Frame-Loom WeavingThis is a great book for a beginning weaver! I personally think that many parts of this book by Jane Redman is helping me quite a bit with my tapestry weaving.

Though the book goes over ridged heddle type looms, it is more about Tapestry weaving on any type of Frame loom.

This is a Fantastic book no matter how long ago it was written!

Just because it was originally printed in the 80's--at least my copy is, the information is clear, concise and helpful in every way.

I love this book, it's a fantastic guide if you want to start weaving the "cheaper way" with a frame loom made from an old wooden frame and nails or if you are handy with wood and tools, or like me have a handy husband who can make you a nice square/level wooden frame loom and stand for you to sit comfortably at a table or on the floor.

As for the book, I keep it right next to me when I'm going to start any type of tapestry loom...

I would definitely recommend this book to any beginning or intermediate weaver who is interested in frame or tapestry weaving!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Richly Informative, Well Illustrated, Deeply Inspiring Aug. 10 2014
By Akua - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
A canonical book with detailed explanations on a wide range of frame loom weaving approaches and techniques “written for everyone who is concerned with weaving as a means of expression and a visual communication of an idea”. Images and examples abound illustrating every concept presented. While mainly black and white, there are also color plates. Thoughtful and deeply instructive, the short, yet rich visual glossary of technique alone is worth the price of admission.

I am moved by the possibilities of double weave, lace and dimensional and sculptural weaving in the book. I thank Jane Redman for sharing her insight and expertise in a way that is still compelling, communicative and inspiring, 40 years later.

“ Everyone who creates is still a magician who is able to transform simple materials into something elaborate and beautiful, to produce illusions, to give charm and mystery to the ordinary and the inanimate” p. 49
