TOP 100 REVIEWERon 10 December 2008
This is an essential illustrated guide to over 600 fabric weaves. A such it offers a versatile library of weaving patterns for all levels from beginner to experienced weaver. The book includes an in-depth introduction to basic equipment, fibres, yarns, what to do with the selvedge, sett, how to calculate the warp length and colour theory. The introduction is illustrated with useful drawings.

The 600 patterns include basic threadings, block drafts, lace weaves and special threadings. The patterns are highly useful and include double cloth, more than one colour warp, hand manipulated wrappings, honeycombs, , twills, Swedish lace, herringbone, distorted wefts and a whole lot more besides. Find out how to finish your piece. This section looks at edgings, drawn threads, hemming, fringes and so much more. There is also a glossary, index and resources.

This is the equivalent of one of those wonderful stitches books for knitters. The types of weave shown are comprehensive and are clearly photographed with charts indicating the treading sequence and order of work. You will return to this book time and time again.
