Item description for Time to Weave: Simply Elegant Projects to Make in Almost No Time by Jane Patrick...
Highly textured objects such as plaited paper baskets, woven lanterns, small hearth rugs, and cork tables are featured in this beginner's guide to nonloom weaving. The easy instructions teach ancient techniques such as braiding, stringing, and knotting—and call for everyday materials such as copper tape, plastic sheeting, paper yarn, and granite tiles—to produce stunning contemporary designs for the home. A short essay about natural materials and the creative process introduces each project, and lovely photographs showcase the final results: sleek window hangings, stick-and-string coasters, pillows covered in canvas tape, and woven paper cards. A list of resources, an assortment of weaving tips, and suggestions for further reading are included.

Weaving for the Working Woman Apr 10, 2007
I love to weave but seldom have time to warp a loom and weave. This book has so many cool projects that can be completed quickly and satisfy my 'want to weave' urge. The projects are fun and quite useful. Many projects would be suitable for a beginner or even older children. An added bonus is that the project also make great gifts.
Good book Jan 18, 2007
