This is a great book with easy to follow instructions. Wonderful for beginners like me. It includes a very helpful step-by-step process of making a sampler and some ideas for future projects as well as some of the author's work that provide a flavor of what kind of artist she is. Highly recommended if you can find it for a reasonable price. I paid just under $17 for the book, which included the shipping.

Update: I have found this book online for $30 with shipping on a loom company website; just put the author's name in the search engine.

This must be one of the best tapestry weaving books available today. The instructions are clear and the colour photographs a great help. The sampler piece on page 14 covers most of the basic stitches and techniques. I would have liked more info on the range of tapestry looms available. It does assume some basic prior knowledge of weaving as it does not cover a great deal of information how to deal with mistakes or what can go wrong for a beginner. It arrived promptly and in very good packaging. Thank you.

I want to make ALL the tapestries now. Very easy to follow instructions and she even gives you instructions on how to make an inexpensive loom out of a picture frame. There's a very detailed and simple project to teach you some basics and then moves on to build on those with some stunning projects. This is a great book if you are interested in learning to weave tapestries.

I have long since wanted to switch from painting with paint to painting with yarn. I bought a tapestry loom, and 3 books on tapestry weaving. This book is truly the only one I needed to get- I am working through the tutorial tapestry- in which I am learning how to do everything I can think of that I would need to do to create my own designs. The instructions are wonderful, both in words and in particular in the detailed illustrations.

The pictures of the author's tapestries are very inspiring to me- I love the vivid folk nature of them all. The ideas for finishing the tapestries are wonderful- hanging with bamboo and feathers, beads, sewing onto linen- all outstanding ideas.

Truly a must for anyone who wants to weave tapestry. This book has excited me more than anything in a very long time!

This book is very good for anyone wanting to learn the simple basic techniques for weaving. The diagrams and pictures are clear and easy to understand. You also get a whole progression of a design so that if you follow along you can end up with a completed project that looks beautiful and along the way you have grasped the different patterns for future use. It covers a lot of territory with easy and concise instructions.

This is a very nice book. I purchased it because it received many good reviews. However as someone who is wanting to try tapestry for the first time I don't feel especially ready to strike off on my own. And am wondering why? For example actually getting your image accurately established and started. While I will practice the techniques presented I'm wanting to do picture type images not square and rectangular shapes. And after reading through the entire book I'm not sure I can make that happen. The author is a very talented weaver, her work is quite beautiful. There are 25 pages approximately 25% of the book devoted to a gallery of her work with minor explanation of the techniques used to create them. I think I was expecting more discussion and instruction re techniques, looms, warp, weft and finishing options. The weavers guild I belong to has a small group of ladies who meet and specialize in tapestry weaving, I'm hoping that they will fill in the gaps for me and soon I'll be comfortable creating my own works of art.

I had checked this book out of the library before making the investment to add to my weaving library. Very inspiring book with great instructions.
I bought a Mirrix loom to use for bead weaving, but wanted to try my hand at tapestry as well. The beading went great, tapestry was a disaster. I looked at many books on weaving, but this one got me there. It's definitely for beginners and is written with that in mind. The color pictures and text are wonderful, showing and explaining each step in clear detail. I've come to learn enough about the basic techniques and terms that I'm actually starting to do some experimenting. The author truly understood what it is like to want to learn this art when you know nothing about it other than it somehow involves string and yarn. I would highly recommend this book for people wanting to try tapestry weaving and for those who may want to teach it to children.
