Questions Answered Review by Deborah

I'm a beginning weaver and have only woven 2 sets of towels so far based on watching videos on Craftsy. At this point I had some basic weaving questions. So I got Liz Gipson's video and it's as if she knew my mind. One after another of my questions were answered. She is easy to listen to and clear in her directions. This is a great video for beginning weavers!

great videos with clear instructions Review by Julia

I found these videos to be very clear. I have taken a class in a local store which was very good but this augments that learning experience by adding clear instructions on finishing.

Excellent tips Review by Kim

I wish I had bought this video before I warped my loom the first time. Some mistakes I have made by learning the hard way could have been avoided. I also learned new things like the embroidery stitch and piecing fabrics together. I am so happy I purchased this video download! Thanks Liz!

Excellent Review by VARRIN

Je recherchais des explications pour utiliser au mieux mon rigid heddle, mais hélas en français, il n'y a rien, pas de livre, pas de dvd. J'ai enfin trouvé, les images sont très parlantes, pas besoin de maitriser la langue anglaise. C'est une vidéo complète sur plusieurs domaines : bien commencer et bien finir un tissage, les bordures, assembler plusieurs bandes, comment rattraper une erreur (ex: un fil cassé) et plein d'autres choses encore. J'ai opté pour le téléchargement, car il n'y a pas de version française sur les dvd, donc j'ai économisé les frais de port, tout c'est bien passé lors de la transaction. Je suis ravie, tout est parfait!

The Best In-Home Instruction Video of the Rigid Heddle Loom Review by Carla Cay

I'm very new to weaving as I've had 2 classes and my husband bought me the Schacht 25" Flip Loom for Christmas. Although the 2 classes were very helpful, Liz's video will be my right-hand teacher at home when I'm having a "help!" moment. She's an excellent teacher, the video was great quality and showed what Liz was doing in an excellent way

I like her teaching style and will certainly purchase any future instructional videos she makes. I also have all her books and find them very easy to understand.

Will be recommending Life After Warping to anyone that is interested! Thanks for a great teaching instrument, Liz!

Perfect for Beginners Review by Nancy

This is perfect for beginners. A lot of my questions were answered plus she addressed things I had not thought of or ran across yet.
What a great teacher she is. She instinctively knows where a beginners problems lie and tells you how to avoid them.

Truly an Inspiration Review by Catherine

This is one of the best instructional videos I've ever seen. She answered all the questions that I didn't know to ask. Felt like I could accomplish anything after watching, and have. My weaving has gotten easier and I understand where my mistakes were so once I fixed them whoolaa easy weaving. Simply Amazing

Great for beginners or review for more experienced weavers Review by Debbie

I've watched the first of the two sections. I learned a better way to wrap my shuttle and finishing techniques. Looking forward to watching the second section/video.
My only suggestion would be to have a table of contents so you could jump back to sections for review instead of having to search (like for finishing, etc).
