Where should it go?

I've been working on this book cover today.
 I'm thinking of self-publishing it in an 8.5" x 11" format. The manuscript has been in my file drawer for years. There are lots of knitters nowadays and I think the time might be right to get it out in the market. It combines knitting and weaving using very basic materials -- a "loom board," and a tapestry needle. You can make knitted and woven pieces, such as woven mittens with knitted cuffs, or a sweater with a woven collar.
After I finished the cover mock-up I began wondering where to put an apostrophe. Should it be Knitter's Weaving Book, or Knitters' Weaving Book, or (skip the apostrophe) Knitters Weaving Book? What do you think?

It sounds a v interesting book.
Def. needs an apostrophe but can be in either place (singular or plural) depending on preference.

You need an apostrophe - and the cover is looking great.

You can self publish through Amazon's site -
It has author's page - and selling aids - and the book will go up for sale through - that really helps to get the word out.

You don't pay anything until you are ready to publish the book - and then it is only about 30.00 - and they send you royalty checks directly to your bank if you want it delivered that way - and you have no more expenses - unless you want to purchase copies of your own book, and then it is at a very reduced price for the author.

Amazon keeps their part of each sale, no upfront payment is needed from you - you get about 35% to70% profit of the selling price - great deal for self publishers.

Good luck - it looks like a very timely book.
