Reviews - What do customers think about Overshot is Hot!: The Best of Weaver's (Best of Weaver's series)?
wow! overshot Sep 6, 2008
When I started weaving MANY years ago, overshot just fascinated me. However, it did seem regulated to doing placemats and napkins and I quickly lost interest. This book has renewed my interest in trying this "basic" weave structure in new and exciting ways -- now, I just need to find the time to try some of Madelyn's excellent suggestions!
