Very practical

Tom is not only very pleasant person to hear to, but he knows! A lot. I am already loom(s) owner and still I learned so many new interesting things and funny handy tricks. Tom not only explains how different loom work, but covers all the weaver's accessories, loom maintenance and so much more. After watching this video and investigating a little bit more I am pretty sure what loom I need, unfortunately is the most expensive one :O. Thanks Tom! Review by isabela (Posted on 11/27/2018)

Although I've been weaving for 45 years, there was still plenty of Aha moments for me in this video. Tom is a knowledgable and articulate teacher who knows how to get his points across succinctly. His discussion of the various types of looms was particularly helpful.

Tons of useful information here, presented at just the right pace by a personable guy.

Excellent
As a beginning weaver, I found this video to be very inclusive and detailed. I watched this video before purchasing my first loom, and again after I was more familiar. It was equally helpful in both stages: pre-purchase and post-purchase/weaving.

Prior to my loom purchase I knew little about looms, as my focus was on spinning. The next natural progression for me was weaving and this video was the basis of my knowledge to make and informed decision.

Post loom purchase and beginning weaving, I was able to pick up many tips to pull into my weaving process to improve my experience. Thank you so much for an excellent video.
