Lots of Choices Review by Sheri

I'm new to weaving and saw a good diagram of the loom and good explanations of warping it and using it. The patterns have good diagrams and seem easy to follow.

Color coding for threading. Review by Dawn

The patterns are in color which helps with understanding the threading. I liked all the various types of patterns with different type of origins.

Excellent reference book Review by Nancy

I wasn't expecting more than patterns, but this book is also a well illustrated how-to manual for those that are new to inkle weaving. This was one of the best buys ever made for my weaving library, and will be close by at all times.
