The introductory chapters have value, but after that the "project" chapters are basically like "Red! Weave something in red! Red is great!" with pretty pictures and fancy names for the colors; each chapter is a different color. That's about it. Also annoying presentation--large and dramatic fonts on pictorial backgrounds so that the whole thing is very hard to actually read. A dud.

The patterns are very simple and basic- just runners and such, but quite lovely. The best part of the book, though, is the clear, step-by-step instructions on how to warp a rigid heddle loom and the basics of weaving. Since I am clueless, this is just the kind of book I was looking for.

I really like the set up of this book. Good instruction in the first of the book and creative ideas in the main body of the book. I found the interesting use of color and texture inspiring. The one thing missing is pictures of the finished projects. This makes a huge difference in the way I rated the book. I would love to see the picture that are missing. The lack of pictures makes the reader feel as if they were cheated.

Beautiful pictures but I doubt I could learn to weave by reading a book. I would need to apprentice with an experienced weaver for a while.
