Margaret Stump is the author of the successful Pin Loom Weaving. She has been creating wonderful fabrics and projects with pin looms for more than forty years. Her work is creative, original, fun, and appealing to young and old alike. A longtime advocate for this vintage art, she is delighted to see so many artists and craftspeople rediscovering the joys of pin loom weaving. She lives in Mankato, Minnesota, and can be found online at www.pinloomweaving.com.
As soon as you open the book, you will get a sense of Meg's pleasant personality and attention to detail. She has thought of everything that the beginning pin loom weaver wants to know, including making your own small loom. There are instructions for weaving on several kinds of small looms, and bias weaving. Meg's projects are charming and creative, and well suited for the beginner. There are also more challenging ideas like a textured weave, and quilt-style piecing. There are small jewelry ideas, which I like. If there was any lack in the book, it would only be the section about joining, which was brief. But then, I am passionate about joining. Meg loves to weave and to share weaving ideas, and her book will be a good addition to your pin loom weaving library. -- Marcella Edmund
