Wow, what a cover. Calling all spinners - take your spinning to the next level with this book that shows how to spin contemporary yarns. The yarns with wraps, coils or bumps are nothing short of fantastic. I love the colours and the texture. Beautifully produced with great photography and instructions plus the added bonus of a DVD. This is my number one book on spinning. It does the job of making you want to grab a wheel and spin. Highly recommended. This review first appeared on Karen Platt's yarnsandfabrics blog.

This book and DVD Spin Art: Mastering the Craft of Spinning Textured Yarnwas recommended to me by a spinning collegue and how right she was to do so.

By working through the book you build up skills and techniques like building blocks.

The pictoral, written and DVD instructions are all clear and precise taking you through the techniques step by step.

By following Jacey Boggs excellent tutorials I was able to produce an art yarn on my first attempt.

It would be useful to have the basic knowledge of spinning, how your wheel works, how twist is made, balanced yarn etc but I'm sure an adventurous beginner would have no difficulty following JB's instructions.

Excellent book, self explanatory and the DVDis a welcome bonus. Takes you through different methods of spinning art yarns in very clear diagrams and photos, very easy to follow. This can then be reinforced by watching the DVD. Teaches you to relax when trying new movements, to stop holding the wool so tight through nerves that it breaks. A good buy for an intermediate spinner who wants to try something a bit "off piste"

This book is briliant. Jacey's instructions are clear and the DVD really helps to show what she is trying to achieve. She also makes yarns which are wearable and not just an exhibition piece.

The instructions and projects are staged so that it is possible to start with easier yarns and progress to more complex methods.

I would recommend this to any hand spinners who are able to use basic techniques and want to learn more artistic techniques, but which produce yarn that is practical and wearable.

Lovely book lots of ideas and advice and the dvd is really useful, if annoyingly American so quite slow... This book was second hand but turned out to be as new in all respects and I am very happy with it.

Brilliant- just what I needed to understand how to spin beautiful balanced yarns. Jacey is a great teacher; her explanations are very clear & the video is great whilst learning the techniques.

Jacey Boggs makes these techniques sound easy and fun...I'm sure they are not all easy, but she injects an element of enthusiasm in her writing that makes you want to try them.

Great book + DVD. High quality tutorial material, but you need a little experience before you start with this book. Buy it anyway, you'll soon be there!

Good Book. Easy to find out about different aspects to create different yarns. Clear photographs.Similar to other books but but worth looking at.
