Editorial Reviews

Library Journal

Weaving teacher and writer Dixon's practical guide to more than 600 different weaving patterns for four-shaft looms divides weaves into basic groups by structure (e.g., basic threadings, block drafts). Each weave is accompanied by warp threading and weaving drafts (the latter, explained in a handy extended flap), a tie-up grid, close-up photos of the weave, and color photos of the actual woven fabric. Beginning weavers will appreciate the sections on weaving basics and finishing techniques as well as the glossary of common weaving terms. Highly recommended for public libraries and textile collections in academic institutions; combine with a good general weaving book like Deborah Chandler's Learning To Weave, and you have a complete basic weaving collection. If you can buy only one book on handweaving this year, this is the one.

    What a pleasure to use Anne Dixon's book!

    Any harness loom weaver will appreciate this book. The photographs are truly awesome! And there are so many weave structures to learn about and work on. A particularly nice feature is the inserted view of the back side of a fabric when it is different from the front side. Not only could one characterize this book as "eye candy," that same reader will cherish it for the depth of information and the ease of understanding the weave structures. Thank you Ms. Dixon!!!
