- Great instructive video Review by Barbara Hill
I usually have a fairly good eye for color but this video opened my eyes to new ways to select and view color. As a knitter, crocheter, and weaver a lot of money and time can be invested in purchasing quality materials. This well-taught video will help select just the right color values to make a project pop!

- Eye-opening introduction to color Review by Trudi Jacobson
I wasn't quite sure what to expect with this video, but I am new to weaving, and thought that I might get a better sense of color selection by watching it. Did I ever! Laura Bryant has given me the capacity to see why some color choices I've made in the past in knitting just haven't worked, and I think I will be much better equipped in the future, both for weaving and knitting. I now know how to quickly check color combinations, and I finally understand why the Fibonacci sequence is worth paying attention to. I have become a big fan of Laura Bryant and her calm, measured way of teaching. I encourage others to watch this video, which certainly expanded my color horizons.

- WOW! I don't have to make color disasters! Review by Elizabeth Harrington
I have struggled with color in my weaving. I did not understand why some things worked and others didn't. I was advised to use a color wheel, but still made awful mistakes. Sometimes there was no contrast, others were garish. One piece was compared to a pattern used to induce migraines. Nice. I was at the mercy of copying other successful color schemes. No more! I feel like the kid in the Charles Atlas ads in the back of comic books from my childhood. I can use a color wheel AND add in an understanding of color weight to create successful color stories. I can choose colors to literally tell a story the view can understand. Before I would be rooted in the intellectual side of color. Lots of symbolism and a huge word story behind it all, but kind of a mess. Very interesting on paper, but not effective visually. I am so glad I can refer to this again and again!
