"The Techniques of Tablet Weaving is a wonderful, scholarly compilation of all available information. It is the ideal sourcebook for the serious student." Candace Crockett, lecturerand author of the Interweave Press book: Card Weaving.

First printed in 1982, this invaluable reference for tablet weavers quickly sold-out. Those lucky few who secured copies of the first edition have been photo-copying and lending their books to cardweaving friends ever since. This revised edition features digitally-enhanced, clearer photos than the first edition.
