How-to Videosweaving basics

Jette Vandermeiden now has a series of Weaving Basics videos. These videos will cover a variety of topics from winding a warp to the ergonomics of weaving. New topics are added weekly. Subscribe for free and you will be informed when a new video is available.

Pam King has created a video outlining the steps to weave a warp-dyed Tencel scarf. We hope to use it in our up-coming Introduction to Weaving course. Click on the photo below to view the video.
