    A translation from the back of the book:

    "Weaving is meditation. Weaving is problem solving. Weaving is medicine for the soul. There are as many entrances to the ancient craft as there are practitioners."

    In this book (her first out of three so far) Anna shares stories of 11 weavers, including photographs of their work. A historical section of the book offers beautiful photographs of a wide variety of older traditional textiles. These are a joy to look at, and also an inspiration for creating pieces of your own. The entire last half of the book includes highly detailed drafts for rugs, wall hangings, bags, and more. These projects demonstrate the tremendous variety of patterns and projects that can be created using this simple technique on 4 shafts and 6 treadles.
