Best of Weaver's Double Weave Feb 28, 2008
I have found all the Best of Weavers books to be extremely thorough and easy to follow in the instructions. The photograghy is wonderful. There are very creative projects that are inspirations in themselves and great for stepping stones to one's own creativity. These are probably the books I refer to the most for my weaving designs.
Not for beginners or owners of 4 shaft looms Jan 5, 2007
Although the ideas look really neat, there are not many uses for someone with a 4 shaft loom (like me). More stuff for 8 shaft owners. I think some of the ideas could be adapted, if one were an experienced weaver. Certainly doubleweave is a technique that some might like to attempt, but this is not the book to start with.
