My Review

Weaving with Little Handmade Looms

I just received this book and I can’t wait to do some of the mini weaving. As most people are feeling right now, I am feeling the need to just do small things. There are many projects in Weaving with Little Handmade Looms that are now on my “To-do List”.

I gave a four-and-a-half star rating because some of the weaving terms lost a little of the proper meaning in translating from Japanese to English. For instance, “string” the loom instead of “warp” the loom and flat weaving instead of plain weaving. She does have an illustrated step-by-step instruction on diagonal or bias weaving, but she calls in “cross weaving.” If you need further guidance on this method, my post “Diagonal Weaving” may help you.

But, if aren’t familiar with weaving terminology, it probably doesn’t make any difference.

Going to go weave me some minis.
