This little ring bound book is a treasure for the beginner. It is packed with usefull brief explanations of 'how to'.
As a beginner in weaving this book offers clear concise examples of the terms used in weaving and also the instructions of 'how to'. The illustrations are easy to understand and the tips are very useful. The easy layout, small compact book with ring binding is worth every penny.

The most thoughtful, useful and interesting book for weavers I have yet seen.
I am sure that I will be dipping in and out of this book for all the years I intend to weave.

As I have not yet started my weaving course this book is a bit overwhelming although I am sure that, in time, I will really make use of it.

It is very well set out and the representations and instructions are very clear.

I had seen this lovely little book at a weaving class and decided that I wanted to buy it. It is ideal for weavers of all levels, very handy to keep in a bag if buying supplies or, reading in those quiet moments.
