Weaving-related gifts

My mom has recently graduated from obsessive knitter to obsessive weaver. Any weavers out there with good weaving related xmass suggestions in the way of books or other weaving related swag?

Halcyon Yarn has a huge weaving catalog, maybe you can find something there for her or get her a gift certificate.

I'd suggest a good warping board or raddle if she doesn't have one, or a gift certificate at her favorite yarn store. Don't be surprised if spinning becomes her next obsession (and no, I don't mean stationary bike exercises).

My weaving mother suggested Marguerite Davison's 'A Handweaver's Pattern Book.' She also said Debora Chanley's 'Learn to Weave,' would be good if she needs a good beginning book.

Second the nomination for Halcyon. If you're not sure what to buy, you can also call them up and they'll help. I'm fortunate enough to live within an hours drive of them and they're a great store, run by great people.
