5.0 out of 5 stars Wish I bought this years ago! Jan. 15 2007
By P. Morrissey - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I've been weaving on and off for more than 12 years, without really getting "caught" by weaving fever. Until I got this book. Now I really understand so much more than I did before and have been weaving regularly. It is well written with great illustrations and pictures. There is enough information here that you could weave nothing but twills and be busy for years. It gave me a whole new appreciation of twills, rather than thinking it was pretty much a "starter" weave pattern. I would recommend this book to every weaver I know.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Twill Exploration Jan. 6 2008
By Kindle Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
As an advanced beginner weaver who loves twills this was a good buy. I liked how the projects are organized in a progression of twill theory starting with straight-draw and ending with networking and beyond. The majority of patterns presented were for 8-shafts or less while the more advanced imagery multiplied them exponentially. It's fun to see what more shafts can do for you. My only criticism is I hoped for more patterns in traditional twill. I would buy this again!

4.0 out of 5 stars It may be too complicated June 18 2008
By K. Dobbins - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
It may be too complicated for beginners. In order to use the ideas you must have a fair amount of weaving experience. The book starts with a few easier patterns and goes to more complicated. Shows an idea and how you can design your own pattern. Very nice and colorful pictures

5.0 out of 5 stars Gorgeous book July 18 2006
By Becky Z. - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
There are lots of beautiful things to make and good explanations of twill from simple to complex ones. (Full disclosure) I haven't had a chance to actually weave any of them yet. My fingers are itching to get those threads on the loom, but more urgent matters pull me away.
