Errata for Interweave Publications

I recently purchased a couple of fabulous books published by Interweave Press - Mastering Weave Structures and Rep Weave and Beyond. Last evening at my weaving study group meeting I learned that both of them have many errors. I heard that at one time errata sheets were available to download from Interweave's web site (6 pages of corrections for Mastering Weave Structures alone!). But, the errata are not there now.

What I did find there was broken links to errata for these books, as well as most of the Design Collections and lots of issues of Handwoven.

So frustrating to discover that treasured items in my weaving library have errors!! Any suggestions?

My weaving mother (Harriet Johnson) said that all weaving books had errors. Even Davison. She wasn't saying this to discourage, but to encourage us to check things out before we started to weave. Harriet was a firm believer in doing draw-downs, by hand, for every project.

That said, its disturbing to find out that Handwoven & Interweave allowed these links to break. I remember accessing them several years ago, but I doubt I have all of them. I realize things are complicated in updating & re-vamping web pages & errors can creep into them. I guess its up to us to keep publishers aware of these problems so they can make errata available again.

 It's going to be OK.  Interweave is working on that section of their web site, and most of the weaving errata are back online. I was able to download the Design Collection and Mastering Weave Structures pages.

The url is www.interweave.com/corrections/weaving.asp

It also says on the page to contact them if you have questions.
