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
