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.
It is very well set out and the representations and instructions are very clear.
I am sure that I will be dipping in and out of this book for all the years I intend to weave.
and used to metric measures!
