about

A comprehensive introduction to the tools, equipment, fibers, and yarns used with four-shaft looms, this reference features patterns for 600 different weaves, including twill, zigzag, diamond, herringbone, and block. Color photographs and large-scale drawings allow weavers to closely examine the details, and the compact size and lay-flat binding is convenient for keeping near the loom. A handbook that is essential for all four-shaft weavers, this manual includes weaving basics, specialized projects organized by degree of difficulty, finishing techniques, resources, and a glossary of terms.

Anne Dixon is a weaver, a teacher, and a writer. She has published booklets about inkle weaving and has contributed articles to a number American publications, including Handwoven. She is a Guild member of the Association of Weavers, Spinners, and Dyers and a founding member of the Braid Society.

"Highly recommended for public libraries and textile collections in academic institutions. If you can buy only one book on handweaving this year, this is the one."  —Library Journal, starred review
