Easy to follow
I really enjoyed this video. I had finished some kumihimo cords and wanted to start adding beads. This was very easy to follow and the pictures showed exactly what she was doing. It was just what I wanted. Review by Fawn (Posted on 12/29/2015)
Excellent Kumihimo Tuition
I have not tried Kumihimo, now have the confidence to go out and buy the equipment and have a go. Everything fully explained, including the pitfalls. Jill Wiseman is very easy to understand, the video flows without hesitation and misleading mistakes by the presenter. Review by Rosemary (Posted on 11/2/2015)
Really good!
This is a really good video for anyone interested in learning kumihimo. Jill is an excellent teacher and this covers the basics from start to finish. I had played around with kumihimo and had managed to make a couple of all fiber braids and one bracelet with beads, and this video was just what I needed to confirm what I had figured out and to give me courage to keep going to the next level.

Great Video!
I love this video! Ms. Wiseman does a great job. This is a pretty basic video for someone just starting out. I have been doing Kumihimo for a couple years, but there was some interesting information I didn't know. I am very glad I bought this. Review by Patricia (Posted on 6/10/2015)
Great Video!
I love this video! I love the way Ms. Wiseman teaches. It is for beginners because she covers the basics, but I did pick up some great tips. I've been doing Kumihimo for a couple years now, but I am pretty much "self taught", so there was information I didn't know. I'm very glad I bought this. Review by Patricia (Posted on 6/10/2015)
So glad I bought this!
Jill Wiseman is an ultra-talented teacher. She has a natural charm that makes learning difficult techniques fun. I really, really hope she makes more videos. Review by Monica (Posted on 5/27/2015)
As always with anything from Jill Wiseman, clear simple straight forward instructions. Easy to follow.
Would recommend.
Review by Kate (Posted on 5/15/2015)
While I am new to kumihimo (already made 2 bracelets with beads before I bought this download) I was not happy with my previous closures.This video gave me the info I was looking. The PDF which came with the video was very clear and easy to understand. Her examples shown are fanbulous giving a person endless possibilities of what to create Review by Deborah (Posted on 5/13/2015)
