An Informative Read
I just learned basic card weaving at the Kansas City Renaissance Festival. I wanted to learn more and this book seemed to fill bill. It does. Review by Robert (Posted on 11/14/2014)
Card Weaving Premium collection
although I'm still slogging my way through the book and coordinating the cards with it, I'm finding it easily laid out for us who don't handle written directions that well! I'm going to be ready to start my first little project soon, and can't wait! Review by Susan (Posted on 9/9/2014)
