Format: Paperback
This book started it all for me ..................it is full of different and ethnic methods of dealing with fibres from the spinning of a fibre to colouring it using Natural and unusual dyes, Weaving your item and even how to sell it to the general public !! The only negative thing I have for it ,is the end section which has nearly 100 pages of "Suppliers " mostly in America( But useful if you are American ! )If you want a general introduction to all these textile crafts then go ahead you will not be disappointed

Format: Paperback
After having perused several books on the individual topics of weaving, spinning and dyeing, it was a complete delight to discover this magnificent tome! Rachel Brown's well-illustrated presentation of these crafts is a godsend for the new "fiberholic" and an invaluable reference for the experienced weaver or spinner. The explanations are thorough and easily understood. A must-have!

If you are looking for information on spinning with a wheel - don't buy this book! It sets you up to fail. If you are a beginner, please keep looking for other resources.

This book includes wonderful information on primitive looms, reducing the expense of getting equipped to weave and making it more accessible to all income levels. The drawings are clear and informative and provide a real understanding of weaving and weaving equipment. Highly recommended!

Format: Paperback
This is a very detailed and all comprehensive book on "Weaving, Spinning, and Dyeing." It is packed with technical drawings that are mostly geared toward Native American craft; yet it also shows other traditional methods and equipment. There are several detailed pages on how to set up spinning wheels of different types. The book alone is worth knowing descriptions, such as Woolen vs. Worsted.
