The Art of Tapestry Weaving – Book Review

Tapestry weaving lets you be more free-form with your weaving, or you can follow a cartoon.

The front cover states, “A Complete Guide to Mastering the Techniques for Making Images with Yarn.” The back cover states, “A Guided Journey from Yarn to Art.” These statements are an excellent description of what you will experience with this book.

I purchased the hardback book from Amazon.
