A wonderful guide and learning manual for mixing colours and yarn types to add rich colour and texture to your work. Many of the techniques can be used on a simple four- or eight-shaft loom, but the book also contains complex ideas for advanced weavers. The book includes simple set-up instructions to get looms up and running. It is then packed with hundreds of weave ideas - each one illustrated with swatches of the finished textiles, setup diagrams, and lifting patterns. Fabric samples are shown close up so that you can really see the detail.

MEDIA REVIEWS
A lovely book for fans of Margo Selby and for lovers of weaving everywhere. Excellent production, design and photos. * Yarns and Fabrics (http://yarnsandfabrics.co.uk/crafts/) *
The layouts were excellent, showing yarns used with photographs of the fabric before and after finishing were excellent. Reverse views of the woven cloth were also informative ... I encourage weavers to buy and study this book which has a mass of information that will encourage them to experiment. * Journal of Weavers, Spinners & Dyers *
Well thought out book ... I'm sure it will be welcomed and enjoyed by the textiles community. * Craftsman Craft & Design *
There's plenty here to work from and with, and the whole thing looks well thought-out and presented. * Art Book Review *
Margo Selby aims to encourage her readers to explore unconventional methods and conduct their own experiments based on her woven patterns. She has chosen her examples well; inspired by nature, architecture or everyday life, she has captured them in her notebook or on her camera. * Textile Forum *
