Rigid Heddle Loom

So back in December, after a few weeks searching , I found an pretty awesome deal on Craigslist for a Rigid Heddle Loom and stand. smaller child’s loom, plus all the accessories, bunches of yarn, and some books.  So we jumped on it, since this was something I had wanted to learn for a while.  Then for a long time, I let the rigid heddle loom sit in the back room gathering dust.  Today, however, was the day I decided to change all that.  I found a class in a platform called Craftsy on rigid heddle loom weaving.  This class came with an awesome discount so I went ahead and signed up for it.

As soon as I finished watching the class, I almost immediately started weaving.  So far I have about an inch of actual scarf woven.  Slowly but surely working on this new skill.  Believe me, when I say it’s not as easy as it looks.  Hopefully I can post some pictures soon.
However, this class came with some awesome tools to help figure out yardage needed for weaving.  If you have any desire to learn a new craft skill, I must say this is the place to do it.  The class is a video of what she is doing.  However, if you have a question you can type it directly into her platform under the video.  She gets back to you very quickly.  Also the class is your FOREVER!  So if you forget, (like I did) you can go back to it and watch it as many times as you need.  You can also upload a picture of your weaving and she can help you figure out any problems that you are having.  So far this has been a wonderful project.  I can’t wait to do the next one and start something bigger.

If you would like to buy a rigid heddle loom I created an amazon store that has lots of the most popular rigid heddle looms. You can find it here
