Review Praise for Anne Dixon's previous title, "The Handweaver's Pattern Directory" "Highly recommended for public libraries and textile collections in academic institutions.

This is a great book that I recommend to everyone who has learned to put string on an inkle loom and then says "now what? If you don't know how to make string heddles, or warp your loom, this book is not really going to teach you that. Luckily, you can find that info on the internet or perhaps in instructions that came with your loom. Secondly, if you are not familiar with reading inkle pattern drafts, the learning curve for using this book is kind of steep.
However, if you're serious about inkle weaving and want to learn techniques like lettering, Baltic style pickup, Monk's Belt, using an additional heddle, and more, this book should absolutely have a place in your library. I had a copy of Helene Bress' book for years, then gave it away to a new student when I moved on to other things. When I decided to start inkling again I looked and looked for the Bress book, but it was tough to find and expensive when I got lucky.
Then THIS book came out! I don't care if I never see the Bress book again First off, the binding is excellent The paper is sturdy and medium glossy, making the photo examples as beautiful as possible. The photography is excellent, with necessary close-ups and nice, thoughtful displays. The threading patterns are sensible and easy to read.
And, bottom-line, the price is more than reasonable considering the work that went into this comprehensive volume. This truly can be the first and last inkle book a weaver would need, with enough patterns and variations to keep one busy for a very long and satisfying time.
I got this book because it was what was "linked" others bought XXX with this The patterns in there are very cool and I'm looking forward to trying most of them--and coming up with some of my own which the author encourages! Anne Dixon clearly knows what she is doing, and while her directions and information are good and definitely useful, she's been doing it so long that some of it was a bit over my head being the complete novice that I am.
However, I've been able to fill in the gaps by watching videos on inkle looms and how to weave on them. Yay for Google and nice people who post stuff! The three videos that helped the most were quite different from each other beginner to expert and different styles no doubt that contributed to them being helpful.
Never have I heard as much fowl language from my wife than after Christmas, than due to this book. Moments of quiet focused work followed by loud, vulgar cursing.
I don't think I have enjoyed a Christmas present this much in years. The patterns are simply described and just takes time to go through them.
Great book. This isn't a "how to get started with your loom" guide. You'll need a simple pamphlet from your loom manufacturer and maybe a YouTube video to learn to warp your loom and get good tension, to start and end a band, etc. This is the book you'll keep with your loom, the magic, the pattern guide! It contains the information you'll want for the rest of your journey with the band-type loom.
