This is a reference book that I have in my library, it is a wonderful instructional!

This was a must have for me when I started to learn to read. I now use it as a reference when creating new projects, and would feel lost without it. Deborah Chandler provides clear direction (with the help of useful pics!) to assist with your basic weaving projects.

This is the book that makes the most sense for the new weaver. Whether it's how to use a warping board or what a sett is, this book will tell you. I just used it to figure out the amount of yarn I needed for warp and weft. Very useful!

I took lessons but the first time I did a project by myself I really relied on this book.
It's useful and it has fairly clear diagrams and pictures. I'm not sure I could have taught myself using this book alone but it has certainly helped me along!

This book is a complete text for learning to weave. Everything one needs to know from basic vocabulary, to warping, to taking the fabric off the loom, drafting, patterns, everything in one location.

An excellent book that should be a part of every weaver's library.

This is not my first how-to-weave manual, but it's the one that explains the "why" of techniques, and that's really what I am after. I am fairly certain it will be my go-to book for any questions I have when I get hung up at any point on a project.
This is what I call the bible of weaving. Every novice weaver should have this as their first book and everyone else should keep this forever to refer back to. The author is also a great instructor!

Great "how to" for multi-harness weaving.

Perhaps I need to read through this one again, because the first time, I found it very confusing. But, it has received some great reviews, so maybe I am missing something?

Clear, easy to understand information. I highly recommend this book. The first half is helpful for people with rigid heddle looms and then it progresses to 4 shaft looms.

I'd recommend this book to any first time Weaver.

I didn't actually read every page of this book, but my weaving teacher referenced it heavily in our class and I've used it enough as a reference that I know it is an excellent weaving book.

This is a great book for beginning weavers. Very clear and easy to read which is important when someone has no idea what they're doing!
