Absolutely the best!!
Mr. Kningsley is the best. He speaks so I can understand him, anticipates my questions and is patient so I could follow his demonstration--I will use my DVD to enhance my weaving, knowing I can follow his directions with a positive outcome. Great!!!! Review by KLAP65 (Posted on 12/5/2016)

WOW! I have several of Tom Knisely's instructional videos and this one is GREAT. There is so much to see and learn from this video,,,And all of it is wonderfully presented. I was afraid to try his method of warping the loom, but I now use it all the time. Thanks, Tom. Keep up the good work...You are inspirational.
