- A waste of time and money.
There are two big problems with this video: first, it is photographed very badly and the details under discussion are in motion or obscured; and second, the instructor is nearly incoherent, speaking in garbled English and incomplete sentences, all the while waving her hands and talking down to her audience in a very cutesy way. Don't waste your time or money--get a good book on the subject, or a good weaver who will demonstrate and help.

- excellent class
- I'm a new weaver so lately I was constantly in search for books and videos to help me learn it but I have to confess no other author made me feel so at ease with my loom as Liz. Clear and funny, she delivers the essential information, the camera loves her, she always gets the perfect angle so you can see exactly what you have to do, great tips and ingenuous methods. Excellent class, excellent teacher! (Posted on 5/19/2016)
- So Glad I got this Video!
I have been wanting to learn to weave with two heddles for a long time, but was a bit shy of trying because the directions given in books or by people on YouTube just didn't click with me. But Liz Gibson makes it so easy! She goes through the process step by step and watching her do it de-mystified it for me. The camera angles shown while Liz warps are perfect. I can see each thread going in the correct slot or hole and I can play the download as I warp my own loom and by watching her at the same time get it right the first time.
And she shows how to use a pickup stick and string heddles to create twill cloth. Thanks, Liz! (Posted on 3/24/2016)
