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!

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!

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.

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.

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.

Based on the great reviews of this book I decided to get it. This book is fabulous and a real keeper for anyone new to weaving.

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.

Even if I have been weaving for a while, every time I open this book I learn something new or modify my way of doing to make it better or easier.
