In a popular Greek myth, Athena – goddess of wisdom and weaving – is challenged by an arrogant human, Arachne, who believes she can weave with more skill than the goddess herself. When the mortal woman loses the contest after creating a tapestry mocking the gods, Athena turns her into a spider, committing Arachne and all her descendants to a lifetime of weaving without recognition of her skill.

Very good book for the beginning weaver. Terms are clearly defined, and the book is full of clear diagrams and directions. The projects themselves are less fully defined, but each has a specific goal in mind, and that particular area is covered well.

This arrived today and as a beginner weaver I have to say I'm really glad I got it. My floor loom is already starting to look less scary, and although I'm yet to sit down and read the book properly I can tell I'm going to learn a lot from it.
I wish Anne was still here, but this book will be the next best thing. Anne was a wonderful teacher, even at the end of her illness she was still one of the best teachers I've ever had the pleasure to learn from.

My book arrived today. It’s the book I wish I’d had when I taught myself to weave. Clearly written descriptions of the whole process and it’s tools begin the book. Then Anne moves onto project based steps in learning to weave and gaining confidence at the loom. It’s chock full of information and beautifully photographed. Anne’s last book is a suitable tribute to her memory.
