Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
In 1996, Interweave published the first of their "companion" books, The Knitter's Companion. Then came The Beader's Companion and The Weaver's Companion. Now, hand spinners have their own handbook, a compendium of practical information on spinning wheels, preparing fibers for spinning, drafting, plying, fiber storage, and much more. This richly illustrated manual includes an excellent bibliography and a resource list. Public libraries with any interest in this subject will want this one. It's the type of book aspiring hand spinners will check out and then buy for their own collections. Copyright 2001 Cahners Business Information.

This book is small in size but large in content. The spiral binding makes it a very handy reference. I keep mine next to my wheel and when I need to look something up the excellent organization of the book makes it a quick process. Every beginning and intermediate spinner would benefit from owning this book.
