Starting with the beginning basics as to what a warp even is, Peggy proceeds through the necessary steps of planning and executing a warp. You will not only understand the why's and how to's, but you will gain terrific tips along the way. I can't say enough good things about the clear illustrations...they are worth the price of the book alone!. The appendix is full of very helpful charts that any weaver should keep close at hand. I truly feel this is a MUST have for any weaver's library. ( )
