Happy that I purchased it Review by Iro

I'm becoming a fun of Madelyn van deer Hoogt. My main goal was to understand block weaves (I didn't have the faintest idea). Without getting near the loom I now know which structures are block weaves, made a block design of my own and know which structures I can use with the shafts that my loom has. Loved the homework!
It assumes that you know how to weave the structures that are block weaves. For example it doesn't explain how to weave summer and winter, but how to transfer a block design into summer and winter.
