I Love It
I love this book. It has all the essential information I need to use my 8 shaft loom. The pictures are black and white but they are easy to see and give me an example to look at. I keep picking it up and seeing the patterns and the relationships between tie ups, teadlings and threadings. So much makes sense now. Review by Barbara (Posted on 8/12/2016)
Worthwhile addition to any weaver's bookshelf
Good base to work from Review by Heather (Posted on 6/30/2016)
fantastic complex weaving
Well worth the money. Just about every pattern is in this book. Wonderful source of exercise . There are some drafts with 12 and 16 treadles. Selections of patterns from many other books and weavers.
not a recipe book. All yarn, color and sett are up to you. A must have.

A great gift
I have owned and used this book for years. If I am at a loss for ideas what structure to pick for my next project, leafing through Strickler always inspires. This is a book I always take with me on my several annual vidits to my holiday home where my largest loom resides. A must, and the first one to go into the bag when I pack.

For this and many other reasons I have used this for gifts for new weaving friends who were not familiar with it. And I have just done so again. I'll never tire of it.

"A manual of 8 shaft weaves"
I agree too, it's a must. It is black and white book which disappointed me at the beginning but then again it's a kick to my imagination.
Has a small introduction about each structure and lots of patterns. Great source of exercise and inspiration.
There are some drafts with 12 and 16 treadles and all patterns are loom controlled.
It's actually a selection of patterns from many other books and weavers.
It's not a recipy book since yarn, color and sett are up to you.
I recently got an eight shaft loom and this is a guide of what my loom can do.
I'm happy I bought it!

A Weaver's Book of 8-Shaft Patterns
