Explore the endless possibilities of the rigid-heddle loom as Jane Patrick shows you how to take your loom to its limits!

The rigid-heddle loom—a simple device with a hard-sounding name—is remarkably versatile and easy to use. It’s great for beginners, but equally great for seasoned weavers who can explore its endless potential while never getting bored. If you’re accustomed to thinking of the rigid-heddle loom as a “placemat” loom, be prepared. In this 2-disc set, you’ll see how to use it for all kinds of fabrics—from sturdy little rugs to sheer shawls, from simple plain weaves to complex finger manipulations to doubleweave and beyond.

Learn how to:

       Warp your loom in a matter of minutes
       Master simple finger manipulations
       Use a pick-up stick to weave any pattern you choose
       Use two heddles for fine fabrics and even double cloth
       Add clever embellishments to your weaving as you go
       And so much more!

You’ll find simple explanations of dozens of techniques as Jane guides you through a handsome Sampler. Trying the next new thing with this versatile loom is almost addictive. In a good way.

Plus, you get printable PDFs of  downloadable sampler instructions and “cheat sheets” included with the DVD!

Excellent supplement to the book Weaving on a Rigid Heddle Loom Review by Karin

I purchased the book and video, and I am very glad I have both. If a technique's explanation leaves me with furrowed brow, I go to that corresponding section on the DVD. There, Jane Patrick's demonstration clears up mysteries turning that lightbulb on for me. Both tools are proving invaluable to me as I work through the samples. My imagination has just started to expand with new ideas and possibilities for future projects.

Excellent Review by Katherine

I had the book...then discovered Jane's video. Just what I needed to perfect those more complex techniques and yes, I wove the sampler..something everyone should do from start to finish. Now I feel enabled to tackle more complex designs. Thank you Interweave and Jane.

Très bon livre Review by VARRIN

Explications très utiles pour apprendre d'autres motifs de tissage. A utiliser en complément du livre. Seul petit bémol, la caméra est trop loin du tissage, donc on ne peut pas toujours bien voir les manipulations.

Excellent, excellent, excellent Review by Karyn

Jane Patrick definitely knows her weaving and makes it easy to understand. I heartily recommend this DVD. I also have The Weavers Idea Book by Jane as well and ,once again, it is a very valuable tool to have.

Great on fundamentals and advanced techniques Review by Paula

I'm a novice weaver (I'm still working on my first plain weave scarf--don't think I'll be able to use it or give it away as it's too uneven). Bought the Schacht Rigid Heddle Loom a month ago, read the instructions, looked at several YouTube videos, the found this great video tutorial. I looked at Part 1 several times to get started (scared to cut the warp for about a week!), then finally took the plunge and am working on my technique for consistency across the weft as I beat, and managing the integrity of the selvedge. Jane's instructions and the camera angles have been great to help me get going. I've looked at the advanced techniques but am not there yet in my own weaving. I think this tutorial will guide me for quite a while as I work on my weaving skills. I've been a knitter for quite a while and am just getting into this new (to me) craft and love the variety of fabric that you can create by weaving and employing finger techniques, pick-up sticks, etc. (I barely know the lingo!) Anyway, this is a great DVD set and can take you from novice to experienced weaver even with the little rigid heddle loom which is reasonably portable.

I give it 4 stars Review by Maurice

I just received my book on rigid heddle looming. I have watched it several times now and just love how informative this dvd is. I've only made two things so far, but I can tell you I'm hooked on weaving. A good cold winter project, and it has been COLD!
