A great resource for beginning and intermediate level weavers. This book explains the basic weaving process for lap looms better than any other book I’ve read.

Authors Notes

When I sat down to write this book my aim was to create a guide that would not only give you the foundation skills of frame-loom weaving but provide a framework in which you could express your creative self.

For this reason I haven’t included projects, but instead provide discussion on how foundation skills can be varied through design and application.

I’ve drawn on my own experiences and extensive weaving library to provide you with an accurate and authentic guide to frame-loom weaving.

I hope by sharing this knowledge I can help you achieve creative freedom in your own woven pieces.
