Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
This is one of the best single book introductions to weaving available. The first section is for the true beginner, the second for those who already know the basics, and the third for those who have some experience and know what they are doing. "Other Useful Things To Know" is a wealth of information the author has learned over her years as a weaver and teacher.

17 years ago this month, I bought this book (the original version, which was revised in 1995) and a floor loom, some cotton yarn, a shuttle and some bobbins, and from reading just this book, and following Deborah Chandler's step-by-step instructions, I learned how to weave. I have enjoyed weaving so much. Later I bought this revised version of the book as well. I recommend this book very highly!
