5.0 out of 5 stars A 'must have' weaving learning tool! Oct. 1 1996
By A Customer
Deborah Chandler's book is the next best thing to attending an excellent
weaving class in person. Then after you learn to weave, it is a reference book
that can aid you for years to come. Even after weaving for more than
10 years, I often turn to this book. It has plain detailed instruction
with wonderful illustrations. Photos and drawings as well as the fabulous
explanations guide you right along.
Whether you are just learning to weave or want to add to your weaving library,
I strongly recommend this book!

5.0 out of 5 stars A Must! May 30 2000
Forget all the other books on weaving. This is the one. Anyone who has problems warping their loom, designing patterns, learning new patterns will wear the pages of this book thin with reading and rereading and rereading and more rereading. There is barely a day that goes by that I do not in some way refer back to this fantastic book! All we ask is that the writer give us more! Bravo!

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Book! May 15 2001
By A Customer
As a new weaver, I found this book to be an incredible storehouse of good, reliable information. I read it cover to cover before I ever even laid eyes on my loom. Armed with that book, I felt completely prepared to start my first project the evening my loom arrived.

5.0 out of 5 stars A New Weaver's Bible! Oct. 6 2003
By A Customer
Absolutely the best "self-instruction" book I have ever used for any topic. I took weaving several months ago from an instructor, and then did not have time to pursue it for another several months. Deborah Chandler's book saved me. It is extremely well written and offers easy, step-by-step instructions. I highly recommend this book to the beginner or those in need of a weaving refresher course.

5.0 out of 5 stars Don't Weave at Home Without it! Jan. 17 2003
This is the very best book I have seen or used to learn to weave. It is extremely detail oriented and procedes in a step by step manner. I have been involved in spinning and weaving for 9 years and still refer back to it. Get it in a spiral bound ed if you can so you can lay it flat as you work.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Resource May 7 2014
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I return again and again to this book. Though I have taken classes, this book is concise summary of just about everything my teacher has taught me. And the Project sheet is great to photo copy to use for each project you do.

The book is very informative although I would have liked more detail regarding warping from back to front. What I found disappointing were the illustrations.... Read more

Any one new to weaving should add this title to their library. I had borrowed it from the public library first and after reading it once knew that I need to have a copy of my own.
