Library Journal Review

As hand weaving is enjoying something of a resurgence, public libraries may want to consider Handwoven magazine's "Design Collection," an inexpensive series of weaving project books. The 14 designs here are simple enough to complete in a single weekend, although there is no reason they can't be undertaken at a more leisurely pace. Designers include such well-known weavers as Anita Luvera Mayer, Karen Selk, Jane Patrick, and Anne Field. While most of the projects require a four-shaft loom, six may be worked with two-shaft or rigid heddle looms, and all but one are designed for narrow looms with up to 26 inches of weaving width. Experienced as well as beginning weavers will enjoy many of these projects, which range from an album cover to decorative camera straps and even a blouse. Instructions are presented in the easy-to-understand Handwoven format, with full-color photographs of each design. An excellent value for public libraries where demand warrants. (c) Copyright 2010.
