Thank you for this link! It really is going to be a help for a newbie like me!!
I'm trying to see the list, but when I download, all I am getting is computerese-not a list. Any idea what may be going on?
While I am here, just wondered what the consensus is on this book:
Tapestry Weaving, A Comprehensive Study Guide by Nancy Harvey. I would like to buy a copy, but want to be sure it would suit a beginner. All the reviews I've read seem positive!
The booklist is in an excel spreadsheet form when it downloads. Don't know if that's a problem for you or not, Pamela.
The Nancy Harvey book has good beginning instructions, in my opinion.
I have a new MAC so I don't know about loading Excel.
Thanks for your help and the words on the book as well!
Thank you so much for stepping up for a newbie! I'm off to get my list at the the ATA site!
eta: Have my list! So many excellent books!! What a great resource!
Just got my Nancy Harvey book, Tapestry Weaving, A Comprehensive Study Guide, from Amazon and I am so pleased with it! I'll be reading into the wee hours tonight just because it has, thus far, been an interesting read with great photos. I can just imagine how helpful it is going to be once my loom arrives!! I am also pleased with the book itself. While I did go for a used copy, I must say this is the best kept "used book" I have ever seen!!! There is only one little ding in the back cover and some tiny scratches across the top of the jacket. The inside is mint-not a fold or mark on it! The postman, however, did fold it round to put in the mailbox, which, thankfully, I was able to retrieve before folding damage set in!!
Now...I need my loom!!!
Great advice and I will be sure to follow that advice as closely and as often as I can. I have tried to get everything done today so that I can spend the weekend looking over the book/reading and getting my head around weaving. I know that I will complete the process once I get my hands on the new loom! Hopefully, it will arrive early next week!!!
Thanks again for the encouragement Tommye!
