Excellent instruction and idea book for both the experienced weaver and those who are new the art. Rigid needle looms are a great way to see if weaving is for you, to make small items, try out different techniques or to take your obsession with you when you travel.
Betty Linn Davenport's writing style is easy to read, and the book contains great illustrations and a good amount of photographs.
This is the book I would include if I were giving my daughter a gift of a rigid needle loom.
