    Comments about Continuous Strand Weaving Method:

    This book is incredibly comprehensive. I have triangle and square looms in medium and small sizes, and this book is a constant inspiration. It covers beginning skills and advanced, and all shapes of looms. If you have questions about how to weave, or how to assemble different pieces from different looms to make garments and accessories, you can find help here. All the patterns have good pictures, written directions, and drawings to show special methods or assembly. I'm so glad I own this book!
