- 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!
