I have had this book for a few years and I still refer to it for patterns, ideas, tips on techniques and as a reference guide for teaching. It is one of the two books, by Lyn Siler, that I recommend to all of my students. The best basket weaving book available.

This is a great book! I'm new to basket weaving. This book was recommended to me. And it does not disappoint. There is a basket for all levels of basket weaving to make in this book. It explains the different types of weaving. Has a very good dictionary in the front to explain all of the different words used in Basket weaving. The illustrations in this book are great. They are easy to understand and are step by step. The pictures are black and white but still very beautiful. I have made a couple baskets from this book and they turned out beautiful. So beautiful in fact, that I sold them. I would definitely recommend this to other people. Especially beginner basket weavers

All Lyn Siler books are great. This one includes several baskets and techniques that are not in any of her other books and some baskets that are in most books. However, if this is your first purchase of one of her books, I suggest that you consider The Basket Book or The Ultimate Basket Book.

A great book for beginners. Explains the terminology and shows pictures of each. Also different baskets from around the world.

I absolutely love this book! So many really nice baskets to make. I highly recommend this book to anyone who weaves baskets.
