I'm so excited that this book finally got published in English! I stared weaving with he hardcover edition but in Spanish.It was easy to read and really self explanatory.So thumbs up to the author!I would really recommend it for those of you who aren't familiar with weaving (as I was)And for the ones that do: there are many new techniques and great proyects!

I have triangle, square, and rectangle looms. This book is AWESOME!!! I couldn't find a whole lot of patterns on the internet or any books that walked me through using the looms, but this one worked. Great graphics and photos with projects that are beautiful. Would highly recommend this book if you are thinking of purchasing this type of weaving loom. I've made shawls, pillows, and scarves using the ideas from this book.

I love this book! I found it super easy to understand. I'd recommend it to anyone who wants to learn to weave. The photos and drawings are self-explanatory and there are lots of them, guiding you every step of the way.

I was so glad to find an English translation and digital version of this nice little book. It has enough basic info for beginners and great pattern ideas and inspiration for experienced frame loom weavers. I am happy with the purchase.

A must have book! Personally met the author years ago, a true artist herself and wonderful teacher! You'll be able to weave for your loved ones, yourself and in the process will be healing and nurturing your soul!!!!!!
