I a knitter, not a weaver, but as a person of Lithuanian heritage, I found this book to be very interesting. As a girl I remember going to Lithuanian celebrations at the monastery in Kennebunk, Maine, and admiring the beautiful woven costumes. This book also gives a lot of information about regional dress, etc and that was very interesting.
