All the basics of weaving are provided in this succinct handbook. Spiral-bound so that it stays open and filled with definitions and illustrations, the book invites weavers to refer to it as they work. Included are easy reference charts and many sidebar tips to ensure success in both on- and off-loom weaving techniques. Information on project preparation, tools, drafting, warping the loom, weaving, and in-depth finishing techniques is also provided. Resources for weavers include professional associations, Web sites, and common weaving terms in foreign languages.

Weaving can be a complex craft. It's all in the set up. Need some help with your EPI? Trying to remember the formula for figuring out how much warp you need? This book is small enough to keep in your castle bin (if your loom has one) for handy reference. And this will help guide you through the finishing process after you've taken your new fabric off the loom.
