Hi Gil,

VisuaWRAP assumes you know already the basics about cross wrapping, eg how to set up your blank, use tape to hold threads in place, tying off, etc. Once you have those skills down and have probably completed a couple of wraps that's where VisualWRAP becomes useful. It shows you how cross wrap patterns develop thread-by-thread, using existing patterns from a library or new patterns you designed yourself.

FYI - there is a new VisualWRAP website about to be launched.
