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. Bress also includes a good number of creative suggestions for use of the trim, from clothing to purses to wall hangings, etc.
I very highly recommend this book, most especially for Inkle Loom beginners! Besides presenting some very obviously artistic work, Helene Bress is among the few craftspeople I've seen who can also write very clear, and easily followed instructions. My friend who lent me her copy declares me an Inkle expert (Hah) as a result. Well done, and HUZZAH to Helene Bress!!!
