This Is How I Go When I Go Like This


This is How I Go When I GO Like This- Spinning and Weaving as a Metaphor
Interweave has truly got a gem in this book.
I do have to say from the start though, this book is not about beading, and this is a bead site, but I ordered it because it sounded intriguing, and it was.
The title intrigued me and so did the description.
It's a collection of essays written by Linda Collier Ligon, beautifully presented. If you don't know, she's the lady who started Interweave, which puts out some of the best bead books, and Beadwork magazine. The company put this book together as a labor of love and as a tribute to Linda.
It's inspirational and very fun to read. I sat down and read it in one sitting because it was so well put together and so witty. The anecdotes truly cross the boundaries between fiber artists. I laughed out loud at some parts, and thought "Oh yeah.. I've been there" at other parts.
It had ideas for finding time to create, and finding the inspiration to create, for keeping it fun. Plus ideas for getting children interested, which are written for weavers, but can be adapted for beaders. It was heartwarming.
Yes, it's a book about weaving, but also just a good fun read for any textile artist.
It's become one of my favorite books, I even recommended my husband read it because it was so well written.
I really recommend it. Great beach read if you like light reading for the beach since it's done in series of short essays you can read one, set it down, chase the kids, and come back and read another one. I read it all in one go though, the essays were like potato chips. I couldn't stop with just one, I had to go on to the next until the whole book was done.

You can get it either from Interweave or you can get it from Amazon by clicking the link below.
