Many,many patterns to work with and very precise instructions, if you work on a 4-harness loom, this book is fun to have for all the information it contains.

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!!!
