Take your weaving to the beyond the basics and into the Next Steps in Weaving

There is a lot to learn about weaving and as a new weaver you might wonder what the next steps in weaving are in order to grow your skills. Next Steps in Weaving has the answers you're looking for. In this beautiful book by Pattie Graver, former Managing Editor of Handwoven magazine, you'll be introduced to various weave structures and concepts including twill, color-and-weave, overshot, summer and winter, and lace.

Pattie has woven her twenty years of hands-on experience in the pages of Next Steps in Weaving and consolidates hours of classes, self-teaching, information from publications, skills learned from other weavers, and weaving knowledge into this one must-have resource. It will save new weavers lots of time and help you discover your own weaving identity or focus.

This is not just a book of weaving recipes. Each topic is explained and supplemented with instructions for weaving a sampler and a project in order to solidify the concepts and enable you to design you own projects. In addition, the book offers troubleshooting tips and helps new weavers "know what they don't know" in order to expand your weaving expertise.

Although it is primarily concerned with 4-shaft weaving, Next Steps in Weaving also serves as a foundation that will allow weavers to easily grow to 8 shafts. Whether you're new to weaving, have the basics down, or are looking to improve your foundation skills, this book will be an asset to your weaving library.

Next Steps
I found this book intriguing for an intermediate weaver - and even for advanced weavers. It helps resolve problems with various weave structures and pushes you to learn something new. Even if you've been weaving a long time and have tried all these weave structures, the book helps you better understand how they work which will make it easier to use them in future weaving. A great guild library addition. Review by Jean (Posted on 9/6/2016)
I love this book
This book holds lots of information that I will use. I have been weaving for over 40 years and this book is easy to read and use. It has inspired me to try new techniques. It has produced some AHHA moments as well Review by Margaret (Posted on 7/26/2016)
Very informative!
I don't know why the poster prior to me stated that there isn't anything about overshot. There is 26 pages, Chapter 3 that deals with nothing but overshot!

I've been weaving for almost 2 yrs now, mostly twill and it was time to try other weaving structures. This books will guide you through any weaving structure you want to tackle.

Exciting. I wanted to try everything.
I have many good weaving books, but this one made me want to try everything. It was beautifully laid out with clear explanations. I don't think I ever went through an entire weaving book on the day of delivery like this one. She explained things in a way that made sense. The importance of sampling was emphasized with beautiful useful samples to make. I will probably still use my Handweavers Pattern Book and Handweavers Companion more, but this will definitely be one of my go to books along with my print editions of Handwoven magazine.

Misleading/false description
Excellent book in many ways but the description that this book has "overshot, summer and winter, lace, and doubleweave" is inaccurate and misleading. There is no section on doubleweave; the words do not even appear in the glossary or index. Since doubleweave is the PRIMARY reason I bought this book, I am leaving this low star review.

To swallow my personal disappointment and be fair to author and the book as a whole, it is excellent for the subjects it does address. Instructions are clear, graphs/pictures are clear, the tone of the writing is pleasant. It is worth the cost of the book as long as you buy it knowing there is no doubleweave section.
