Product Description

From Library Journal

Since 1979, Handwoven magazine has been a major source of instruction and inspiration for handweavers worldwide. This current volume is a concise manual of handweaving tips and techniques culled from 20 years of back issues of Handwoven and organized for quick retrieval. Here, weavers and aspiring weavers will find information on looms, yarn, methods of warping, drafting, troubleshooting, planning, and fabric finishing. Also included is information on the popular "burn test" for fibers and an excellent section on design basics. This volume, as well as the earlier Knitter's Companion (Interweave, 1996), should be in any basic public library fiber crafts collection.

I'm a beginning weaver. This book has all the loom parts and the information a beginner needs. It also has some information that more advanced weavers may appreciate (but I don't yet understand).

This book is about what I expected after seeing the Knitter's Companion. The various charts and explanations are helpful, and it will be a good reference book.
