“On the Loom – A Modern Weaver’s Guide” by Maryanne Moodie introduces weaving on a simple rectangular frame, circular, and non-traditional looms.

Maryanne takes you through the necessary tools, how to choose fibers, weaving basics, and color design and harmony.

I think Maryanne was given a bum rap in some of the reviews I read. The reviewers were expecting the book to be a more advanced technique book. This book is great for those interested in weaving on small looms and projects. I love this book for that reason. Right now, in my own weaving mind, I am enjoying small loom weaving.

“On the Loom – A Modern Weaver’s Guide” is a basic weaving book. But, it is chocked full of fun projects. This book is for anyone wanting to learn to weave. It is not for weavers looking for advanced weaving or complicated tapestries.
