Crafters looking for a new challenge are turning in their droves to the most talked-about new trend: weaving. Boutiques up and down the country now offer weaving supplies and miniature looms to everyday crafters, and this lavish primer contains all you need to become a weaving wizard.

Ideal for the weaving novice, the book begins with an accessible introduction to operating a loom and the process of starting on a practice weave – from transferring the warp to the loom, through sleying, to making bobbins of weft. The stunning projects section features a variety of designs that are bound to inspire. A fine-checked handtowel will jazz up any kitchen, and an elegant pair of summer curtains make the perfect bedroom adornment. Every project is contemporary in design and colour and practical for every room in the home – from a twill rag rug to a long striped placemat. Charts, diagrams and easy-to-follow step-by-step instructions are guaranteed to make the weaving process a breeze.

Packed with comprehensive technical information and 40 stylish projects, this is a beautiful compendium that beginner and expert weavers alike will turn to time and time again.

This is a great book for new weavers or weavers who have questions with no weavers in your area to answer them. The pictures for warping a loom are great and instructions are straightforward and easy to understand. Read full review
