This site is dedicated to fiber artists.  Many people would love to weave, but can’t afford to buy a loom and all of the equipment needed to start weaving.  By building your own PVC Loom you can get started for a fraction of the cost.

    Hi Rotimi,

    You need to go to the lulu.com website to buy the book. They take all major credit cards, plus I think they take PayPal. You can also find out about shipping there. The link is up above.

    Hi Dave, You don’t have a Contact page (there are easy to use wordpress plugins to help you set that up) so I’ll use this page. I bought the book based on a tiny something that caught my eye in the most recent issue of HandWoven. From my first reading it looks nicely done and thought out. Writing documentation is not easy, I know!

    I wanted to let you know that you make a reference to appendix A Supplies (on page 37 under Weaving Supplies) and I don’t seem to have Appendix A in my copy. I am familiar with resources for weaving supplies so it’s not an issue for me, but I wanted to give you a heads up.

    Also: thank you for making it spiral bound and providing large margins for notes!

      Hi Penny,

      I will install a plug-in shortly – thanks for letting me know about that.

      Sorry about the Appendix A reference. I had originally put that in, but the list of suppliers grew so large that I thought it would be better to direct readers to the Internet. I thought I had removed all references to it. I’ll have to fix that. 🙂

      I insisted on having this printed as a spiral bound book. It needs to lay flat while you are working on the project.

      And, I’m glad to hear you found this in Handwoven. I was so pleased when they agreed to do the little review. I’m also having a banner ad on their site the first 2 weeks in April on the http://www.weavingtoday.com site. They told me that Handwoven is going to be starting an effort to bring new people into the craft and said my book could help with that – which is exactly why I wrote it!

      Please send me some photos when you make your loom!

    Hi Dave,
    I am very interested in buying your book. I currently own a rigid heddle loom and I am looking to go to a more complex loom. Since I have never used a shaft loom, does it come with instructions on how to warp and so on? or do I need to look elsewhere for that information?
    Thank you,

      Hi Theris,

      I only focused on what you need to build the loom. There are too many other good books out there that show you how to dress the loom and weave. Check the Appendix A Resources page for links.
