User Review  - olyweaver - Overstock.com

The book is easy to read and to follow. Begins with a chapter on the history of card or tablet weaving and moves quickly into the basics ending with more advanced and complicated weavings to try. It is a good combination for both beginner and intermediate weavers. Read full review
