5.0 out of 5 stars A "must-have" for every weaver's personal library!!! May 26 1999
By robyns@bestnet.com - Published on Amazon.com
This book is destined to become one of the great classics for weavers! After 30 years of knowing 'how' to weave . . . I know understand more of the 'why' behind the drafts I have have been using. Wonderfully straight forward and well-organized. This book is a must-read for every weaver regardless of their experience.

The Complete Book of Drafting for Handweavers

by Madelyn van der Hoogt


"As a new weaver, my struggle to understand weave structures was like trying to fit together unmatched pieces of a jigsaw puzzle: twills here, overshot there, profile drafts somewhere else, and unit weaves almost nowhere. This is the book I needed. With the Complete Book of Drafting, you'll not only learn to use drafting tools - warp and weft drawdowns, warp and weft cross sections, and block profile drafts - you'll also learn how to design with pattern weaves. Under one cover find the steps for drafting and weaving any profile design in any unit weave." .... Madelyn van der Hoogt

5.0 out of 5 stars Essential for Weavers Jan. 5 2008
By Ms. Garrett - Published on Amazon.com
As a novice weaver this book is an important tool to have. I have used it for class and will continue to use it as a reference for questions and problems.
I would recommend this book to any weaver, beginner or seasoned.

5.0 out of 5 stars Like a well-aged wine ... March 11 2012
By K. F. Suko - Published on Amazon.com
First published in 1993, "The Complete Book of Drafting for Handweavers" has aged well. I was afraid that it pre-dated computer programs for weaving and that I'd need to 'translate' between drafting on paper and on the computer.

I'm working my way through this study guide very sequentially because Madelyn suggests that each chapter builds on its predecessors. I'm looking forward to drafting and designing my favorite weave structures and working with ones I've woven but haven't really understood.

"Drafting for Hasndweavers" is geared for 4 - 8 shaft weaving, although I think I'd feel a little short-changed if I had only a four-shaft loom.
