Comments The Joy of Handweaving

  • Boronia

    This book is clearly written and easy to understand. It runs from very basic to more advanced techniques. Suitable for beginners but I believe there are better books for the more experienced. It gives a bird's eye view of the world of weaving. I'm lukewarm about this one and would not recommend it.
