Pin Loom Weaving in New Dimensions DVD
The pin loom is a wonderful, deceptively simple weaving tool. In this video, master weaver Deb Essen teaches you about the myriad possibilities of a pin loom. She shows how to change yarn colors to create patterns, plaids, and stripes within the squares, then moves into creating patterning with pick-up floats. Finally, she explores the many possibilities for your oodles of little square, from 2-dimensional pieces such as scarves, shawls, and throws to 3-dimensional figures, clothing, and toys.
In this pin loom weaving video, you’ll learn:
- The best yarns to use when weaving on a pin loom
- How to use finer yarns on a pin loom
- How to create pattern within the squares by changing yarns
- How to create and design pattern using simple pick-up floats
- How to create 3 dimensional pieces such as clothing, hats, and toys
Pin loom weaving is fun, portable, easy, and little squares are just the beginning. From weaving to 3-dimensional design, Deb will have your imagination working overtime as you explore what your little loom can do.

About the Host:
At 9 years old, Deb Essen watched a weaver perform "magic" on a loom for the first time. Enticed by that memory, she finally took her first weaving class in 1993, and she’s been exploring weaving ever since. In 2004, Deb achieved the Certificate of Excellence in Handweaving, Level 1 from the Handweavers Guild of America. In 2011, she was inducted into the Montana Circle of American Masters in Folk and Traditional Art. In addition to running her business dje handwovens, creating and designing kits for handweavers, Deb teaches at conferences and guilds, nationally and internationally. Her exploration of supplemental warp weaves led her to write Weaving with Supplemental Warps: Techniques and Projects, available from Interweave.

- also disappointed
As Anne said in her review, I expected patterns for the animals, I know how to do the weaving already. It should be stated in description that the items you see on the "cover" are not included in the instructions.

- Good information on using the pin loom but I too was really disappointed that there were no patterns for the lovely animals which is what I was really after (Posted on 2/13/2016)
- No instructions for animals
- While the description of setting up and manipulating the pin loom was well done, I was extremely disappointed to realize that there were no instructions/patterns for the animals that are pictured and HIGHLIGHTED in the advertising for the product. It should be made clear that the DVD and accompanying materials do not include these. I would not have bought it had I known they were not included. (Posted on 2/4/2016)
- Excellant guide for beginner pin loom weavers
This DVD is the perfect add-on to the purchase of a new Zoom loom or pin loom. It covers what yarns to use and how to use thinner yarns, and how to go beyond just plain weave. It also covers the design process that Deb goes through to make those adorable little animals. If you want to design your own little animals, this video will give you everything you need to set you on your way.
What it doesn't do is give you patterns to make any of those animals or to make any of the cute items on the cover. I was actually looking for detailed directions for those items when I bought the DVD so I was disappointed. But the DVD is good enough and had enough great information that it was still worth keeping.
I have also purchased a few of the kits which do come with detailed instructions and I am hoping that after making a couple, I will understand the process enough to try making my own animals. As a follow on to this product, I would suggest a small e-book with detailed instructions for each of the animals and ornaments, such as the instructions that are found in the kits. It is not really practical to buy each of the kits just for the directions as they all come with the DVD (I now have 4 copies of it!! :-)) I would love to be able to buy an e-book with all the patterns!
