Purchasing a large, expensive loom is cost prohibitive for many novice weavers, and Matthiessen provides a variety of less expensive alternatives. Her solutions range from a homemade loom constructed from hair combs, dowels, and duct tape (yes, it's as primitive as it sounds) to commercial products such as Weavettes and the Ashford Knitter's Loom, a rigid heddle loom marketed to knitters. Matthiessen covers all aspects of weaving, including warping the loom, basic techniques, and finishing. Her low-cost approach to weaving will attract those curious about this ancient craft.
