I’ve just read your lovely book from cover to cover! Wow!  I really like the way each section builds on the previous one and the huge amount of detail you have included. There is enough there to keep me going for years!

"I received your book today. What an amazing work, many congratulations!! This is the only book that really explains the design process for each weave, rather than just show the drawdown in a diagram."
