5.0 out of 5 stars Well worth having in your spinning library!, 24 Oct 2007

This review is from: Creative Spinning (Gaia Traditional Crafts) (Paperback)
I love this book. The techniques are well thought out (and set out) and the layout - pictures, fonts etc. - is stunning. Creative Spinning is easy to read but it contains a wealth of ideas to stretch and inform your spinning. I shall be doing a lot of experimenting in the near future. Buy it, you won't regret it!

5.0 out of 5 stars Beautiful not necessarily practical though..., 1 Aug 2009
This review is from: Creative Spinning (Gaia Traditional Crafts) (Paperback)
This is certainly a beautiful book, the images (photographs) are stunning, the inspiration from nature is very effective and it is a real pleasure for the eye. So for that only it is worth getting. I was looking for something slightly more technical on the spinning side of things, for instance I would have liked more info about different types of carders etc. There is some basic information on various types of wool, what spinning and what combing is, and differentiating the long draw spinning from worsted spinning though, but I would not recommend this book if you want more detailed technical and beginners' information, because the explanations are not always straightforward, especially if you are a starter...

5.0 out of 5 stars Sorry to grumble, but..., 25 Nov 2007
By 
Rosemary "falklandspinner" (Dunnose Head, Falkland Islands (Islas Malvinas)) - See all my reviews
(REAL NAME)   
This review is from: Creative Spinning (Gaia Traditional Crafts) (Paperback)
I absolutely loved the layout, colours, style etc of this book. A wonderful gift for a spinner friend. My grumble (which is not the authors' fault, I do understand) is the errors in the item named Crocus.
'Falkland' is not a breed of sheep, it is a country of origin. And the Green Sheep is our own farm logo, not applicable to all Falkland Islands wool!! Falkland wool as a whole should not be in the shortwool and down sections, unless you count the meat breeds here... it should be in Medium and fine... OK will shut up now but urge you to buy this book anyway!

5.0 out of 5 stars beautiful, but not for beginers, 2 Nov 2008
This review is from: Creative Spinning (Gaia Traditional Crafts) (Paperback)
lovely pictures engaging prodjects for at least 30 beautiful skeins, tips and tricks for novelty spun wool making, but not a beginners book. i bought this to learn to spin and found it all rather daunting, but will definetly keep it for idears for prodjects later on.

This review is from: Creative Spinning (Gaia Traditional Crafts) (Paperback)
This book is brilliant! It's full of ideas on how to create your own designer yarns with easy to follow instructions and beautiful photos. I find the book inspirational and it's giving me the courage to be more experimental with my spinning. A good book for both beginners and more experienced spinners.
