As a fairly new basket weaver, I found this book to be a wonderful resource with great explanations of many weaving techniques from the basics to more complicated and with beautiful pictures to illustrate instructions. Wonderful patterns are also included.

A beautiful collection of gorgeous baskets. Very informative. Wonderful directions. I have made baskets and done many of the techniques covered, this is quite helpful in refreshing my mind. There are some nice recipes. I was provided an ebook by NetGalley. This would make a nice reference book in my library.
