No. 83, 2006 If you have ever considered taking up weaving but have no place to keep a loom, then this is the perfect book for you. With eleven projects, each covering a different hand weaving technique, there are plenty of ideas to get you started; along the way you also learn how to combine colours and textures. The materials you will need are quite basic and a lot of them you will have around the house such as scissors, forks, crochet hooks and pliers. Once you have all the yarns and equipment you need, you can begin making your own belts, shawls, berets and more. With step-by-step instructions and colour photographs, it is a very easy-to-follow guide. * Textile Fibre Forum (Australia) *From Library Journal:
This small book would be an excellent resource for teaching beginning weaving, using wooden embroidery hoops, sheets of cardboard, and picture frames as small improvised looms. Large full-color photos demystify the weaving process, and Burningham has come up with some very attractive projects to tempt the beginning weaver, including berets woven on a circle of cardboard and belts with matching tote bags woven with weaving sticks, an unusual technique. Enthusiastically recommended for public and school libraries.
