Learning things each time. Review by Tracy

I really love this video by Liz. I had watched this video a couple of times before I warped my new rigid-heddle loom. And I warped my loom successfully many times but then I started having problems with my warping and I knew straight away where to go for help ... this video with Liz .... and she was able to show me where I was going wrong. Now I'm warping well again :)

Thanks Liz for such an informative video.

Excellentes explications, très utiles, prises de vue très bien faîtes, ce qui permet de voir les manipulations de façon très nette. Si vous ne comprenez pas l'anglais, ce n'est pas grave, les images parlent d'elles même.

Excellent, basic resource! Review by Kathryn

The Slots and Holes video is an excellent resource for beginning rigid heddle weavers. Liz Gibson's presentation style is quite clear, and the camera angle makes the presentation understandable.

Excellent Review by Linda

Being new to weaving I was thankful for this video. I watched it in segments and will continue to watch it as I get more experience. It shows you exactly how to warp the weave. When I am ready for the rest I will review this video until I get it. Great explanation.

Excellent for a beginner Review by Nancy

Excellent for a beginner like me. Wish I would have bought this one first. She seems to be able to anticipate your questions and answer them. I learned a lot. Then move on to Life after Warping.

Slots and Holes - quite helpful! Review by Iryna Boehland

Thank you for the good and clear video! I love watching and listening to Liz in this lesson. Would love to get a lesson from her on weaving! Few pointers: - at the warping board Liz was blocking the view of her work. I wish I could see it better - double heddle warping was a bit confusing and rushed
