Review: Learning to Weave, Revised Edition

User Review  - Kate - Goodreads

This is the book that makes the most sense for the new weaver. Whether it's how to use a warping board or what a sett is, this book will tell you. I just used it to figure out the amount of yarn I needed for warp and weft. Very useful! Read full review
