- Excellent "how to" book, plus 17 projects with complete instructions
- Liz Gipson is a natural teacher: her explanations are clear and the photographs are an aid to visual learners. The first part of the book includes weaving terms, basic information about types of yarn, how to calculate the amount of yarn needed for a project, how to fix mistakes (e.g., broken warp strings, warp and weft floats, loose warp strings). The second part of the book includes 17 projects appropriate for the beginning weaver, ranging from scarves, towels, pillows, a bag, even shoes! If you only buy one weaving book, this is the one to pick! (Posted on 9/6/2016)
- Ambivalent about this purchase
- Weaving Made Easy revised and updated is a worthwhile purchase on its own, but I'm not sure I should have purchased it since I already have the first Weaving Made Easy. This book, like the first one, has fantastic graphics and clear explanations, and projects that are suitable for beginning rigid heddle weavers. As far as I can detect, however, there is very little difference between the first book and the second. I'll admit, I have not done a word-for-word comparison. It is good to have the new one in e-book format since I have the first one in hard-copy. I'll admit, it is difficult for me to truly review the revised edition on its own merits.
