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!
From the first few sentences you'll feel comfortable with this author's teaching style. She's experienced with teaching weaving and she knows exactly how to explain the techniques to beginners so that they're easily understood.
She creates a comfortable learning environment and encourages each student to try and test the methods and decide which they prefer. As an example, to dress the loom it can be done two main ways, from the front or the back. The author demonstrates both methods and even a third unique method. She encourages you to choose which suits you best.
All the parts and equipment are explained and most of them are pictured in the book. The different types of looms are pictured and she explains in perfect timing each new thing or tip that will really help you out.
There are many illustrations and photos throughout the book as well as weaving assignments which you can work through at your own pace.
The book is set up for the very beginner (For the Very Beginner, Now That You Know the Basics), or if you have some experience, you can jump in on Part III - For Those of You Who Know What You're Doing.
