Book 3 guides you through every step from weaving motions, shuttles and selvedges to finishing your cloth. When problems come your way there’s an extensive chapter on troubleshooting. The drafting chapter explains how to create your own designs as well as to use drafts in books and magazines. Fabric analysis, and the basics of multi-shaft weaving are also included extensively.
