I am an artist who works in a very wide variety of artistic mediums. I am usually able to decipher "how-to" instructional books after going over the instructions several times, but I learn much more quickly by seeing the craft-in-question demonstrated in person.
This particular book on Inkle Weaving has been written with such skill, and crystal clear instructions and illustrations that I was able to design and complete a very complicated design pattern on my first effort! A friend, (Lady Merrsger of Clan CaerLonn) lent me her copy and loom so that I could see whether I wanted to continue with this type of weaving. Especially since it's my first experience with weaving. As my husband (Lord Aragon) says, "This is your new addiction, I see."
Matter of fact, since he's a wood-worker, I had him make me both the table-top & floor looms from the patterns included in the book. (Although, I wouldn't recommend this unless you are a wood-worker, yourself.) As Artisan/Merchants within the SCA (Society for Creative Anachronism), we used those looms to take orders from our customers last week. And everyone we talked to, demonstrated to, and sold looms to, were shown a copy of this book, and highly encouraged to buy one for themselves at Amazon.com!
Within the SCA, (which is a world-wide Midevial/ Renaissance re-creationist & educational group) we are often challenged to find some kind of trim to sew onto our "garb" which looks authentic within our "time period". The trim created on this type of very simple loom is perfect, and far surpasses the mass-produced stuff available in fabric stores! Ms.

This is a very good book for reference and instructions in using the inkle loom, a book well worth having on your shelf. Instructions clear and easy to follow. It just falls short of 5 stars as lack of specific instructions for lettering, but if the pick-up techniques are followed through then lettering could be worked out from these. Techniques on dyeing threads, finishing, thick/thin yarns use etc. Altogether a comprehensive book for both beginners and more experienced.

I've been tablet weaving for years, and thought to try Inkle Weaving. This book has taken me from pre-beginner level to being able to produce sale-quality goods in less than 2 months. It's clear, easy to understand, with some gorgeous patterns to try. I even got the hang of "pickup" work :)
