Format: Paperback
This is the modern 8-shaft weaver's most treasured pattern resource! The 25 chapters are titled according to weave structure, and each begins with a thorough explaination of that structure and it's method of drafting notation. Black and white photos and drafts follow.
There are 765 patterns and samples from which to choose! As useful as a reference for 8-shaft weavers as Davison's Handweaver's Pattern Book is for those who use 4-shaft looms.

This book has become a mainstay for my weaving. I use the patterns frequently. Any one with an 8 shaft loom will be pleased. Very good value.

Great referance book!! If you want to learn what can be done with 8 shafts, this book is great because lots of designs that are threaded the same but have different treadlings are on the same page. It doesn't get easier than that! It's a reguarly used and well loved addition to my library!

I am a weaver and have used this book for many projects and love it.
When my friend recently purchased her first eight shaft loom I knew that she must have this book, so I gave it to her as a "new loom" gift.

Format: Paperback
This is a great book with extensive 8 shaft weaving patterns. However, I was disappointed in the size of the print type. It is difficult to read. The pictures of the designs are quite clear. The book is done in black and white. It will be helpful since I have acquired a 8 harness loom.
