Tapestry 101 is a beginning course for the person interested in learning how to do a woven tapestry. It will give you the foundation you need to understand tapestry weaving and be able to express yourself in this wonderful medium.

There is also information on finishing and mounting your tapestry. Even if you have been weaving for awhile, Kathe has covered information on all aspects of tapestry weaving that will be a help to you.

( 108 pages of written information, diagrams, and photographs with a spiral binding so that you can lay the book flat beside your loom as a reference while you’re weaving.) Cost: $29.00 plus shipping and handling. ($6.00 inside USA contact for shipping to other areas-please)
