Synopses & Reviews

Synopsis:

A comprehensive introduction to the tools, equipment, fibers, and yarns used with four-shaft looms, this reference features patterns for 600 different weaves, including twill, zigzag, diamond, herringbone, and block. Color photographs and large-scale drawings allow weavers to closely examine the details, and the compact size and lay-flat binding is convenient for keeping near the loom. A handbook that is essential for all four-shaft weavers, this manual includes weaving basics, specialized projects organized by degree of difficulty, finishing techniques, resources, and a glossary of terms.

Tracey, May 7, 2008 (view all comments by Tracey)
I've been weaving for almost 20 years, and this is one of the most awesome books I've seen on weaving. The color photos show each pattern in different colors and different treadling! Incredibly inspiring. There is a bit bit of basic information, but the book makes the assumption that the reader has beginning weaving knowledge.
