Not really my favourite weave, but I wanted to complete the Best of Weavers collection. I would have liked to view the contents in detail and more information on the use of colour.

By bernie TOP 1000 REVIEWERVINE VOICE on 24 May 2010
Format: Paperback
The magazine "Weaver's" is defunct but you can find a few archives hidden away in weaver's guilds. However, the patterns live on in this the sixth book in the "Best of Weaver's" series.

Many of the patterns are four shaft overshot. The patterns in standard layouts assume that you have been weaving for some time and can interpret them. Some projects can be complex I prefer simple samplers. Maybe one day I will branch out. This is a great training book and it does not try to be cutesy.

The pictures are color glossy. Most are close enough to see the designs in detail.

When your stash starts to run low there is a supplier list in the back of the book.

wow! overshot 6 Sept. 2008
By Kathy Hill - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
When I started weaving MANY years ago, overshot just fascinated me. However, it did seem regulated to doing placemats and napkins and I quickly lost interest. This book has renewed my interest in trying this "basic" weave structure in new and exciting ways -- now, I just need to find the time to try some of Madelyn's excellent suggestions!

The title says it all! 17 Dec. 2008
By Jaye E. Kasper - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This book shows that weaving in overshot is no longer passe - it's HOT! Very cool designs and manageable projects make this book an excellent choice for weavers who are curious about the technique but have always thought it was just for "old school" craftspeople. Give it a "shot"!!

not so hot 3 Feb. 2013
By Amazon Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
i LOVE overshot. i bought this book hoping to be inspired by a modern interpretation of this weave structure. it was only published in 2008, but even hot off the presses it would have been outdated in style. I have other books that i greatly value by madi-v. she has been so inspiring to weavers everywhere. unfortunately this book misses the mark. this is why: one of the thrilling things about overshot for a weaver is that it only takes 4 shafts. this book is mostly 8 shaft weaves. I completely understand that this weave structure is "old fashioned" but i have seen it used to great success in fresh and modern ways. this book feels like it came out of the 80s (i was there i know)i really wanted to love this book but i cant. It has nice concise instructions that are typical of the great madi-v but i would never make any of the projects.

Inspiring Book 27 Jun. 2009
By Terry A. Mills - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
If you enjoy weaving, get this book! I have used it as a "cook-book" for book marks, and people just love them. I did have to correct an error in the drawdown but that was very easy if you followed the pattern. Somehow they just skipped a couple of pics. Put them in and the pattern is marvelous. Get the book, READ the book, it will inspire you to warp your loom and try some fancy weave structures. I LOVE it and I'm only a beginner (weaving for about 3 years only).
