    Well done
    This is going to be my "go-to" reference for a long time. As a new weaver, Madelyn explains everything in a wonderfully, calming and enjoyable manner. I felt that I could master all of what she taught, because she is THAT good ! She talks about all the techniques one can use in weaving and what she's found to work the best.....I am positive that following her methods to warp my loom will be effortless....also, the photography/videography is well done and the audio is perfect.....I wish Madelyn was my neighbor so I could call on her all the time to learn things.....she's a fantastic educator who puts the student at ease instantly.....and....she makes you feel confident that you can do anything you try to do on your loom. I loved this tutorial, and I also got her "Weaving Well" tutorial, which was equally fantastic. I do not think you will be disappointed in this DVD (nor the Weaving Well DVD).....especially if you're a new weaver. Review by diane (Posted on 7/7/2016)
    Just what I needed to help me warp my loom
    As a beginning weaver, without a teacher, I was apprehensive about warping my new four shaft loom by myself. This DVD is clear, interesting, and informative. It gave me the confidence and tips I needed to get started. Review by Donnalynn (Posted on 12/22/2015)
    excellent if you warp front to back
    I followed the dvd for warping front to back and found it was great. But my loom is larger and nothing comes off like Madelyn's. My arms don't reach from the back to thread the heddles. I expected there to be a more in depth instruction for back to front, which is what I need to use.

    A waste
    I saw nothing in the description that excluded sectional warping. I was looking for help with my sectional warp beam and I purchased the video thinking it would help. Bummer!
    What is there is very well presented it just did not give me what I needed.

    Great resource
    Great to see and remind myself of the steps in warping my loom. Easy to understand and follow. Thank you so much. Review by Judy (Posted on 10/2/2014)
    Brilliant I learnt so much I feel a lot more confident now having watched this DVD
    I could not wait to watch this DVD and I was not disappointed I bought the weaving well at the same time just like having Madelyn in the same room teaching me I wish. Review by Sue (Posted on 6/21/2014)
    Gift from heaven :-)
    Madelyn is an excellent teacher. I love this video! Warping really can be meditative and pleasant part of weaving with Madelyn´s help. I cannot thank you enough for this video :-) Greetings from Czech republic! Review by Karolina (Posted on 8/29/2013)
    Warping Your Loom )10WV08)
    Absolutely indispensable tool in my workshop. Have watched many times, and will continue to do so, learning something new each time. A "must buy" for the new and intermediate weaver. Review by Jennifer Bond (Posted on 11/18/2011)
    This DVD Transformed my Weaving
    I wrote a great review of this DVD previously that was my impression from what I learned watching it. But now I've just finished my fist weaving project using all of Madelyn's techniques from the DVD. All I can say is WOW! Perfect tension, straight rows, it was an amazing experience. I do enjoy warping but I didn't know how to do it well. Now I love to warp and I feel like I'm a real weaver--I know what I'm doing. The finished project looked perfect and professional. I can't recommend this DVD enough for beginners or anyone struggling with warping. (I learned back to front but now I'm a front to back convert). Thanks Madelyn.

    Warping Your Loom DVD
    I bought this DVD aboout 4 months ago and have viewed it at least 3 times. I learn something new every time. I have been weaving for over 30 years and the information in this DVD showed me that there is still a lot to learn. That's what I love about weaving, the education never ends! Review by Patricia Tompkins (Posted on 9/22/2011)
    A very helpful DVD
    I purchased the DVD and it's well worth the money invested. I had no idea how to warp from the front and I had heard about some equipment but I had no idea how to use it. Madelyn does a fabulous job calmly explaining the details of how to warp. She mentions what you need to hear as she demonstrates. She doesn't waste words--she explains things perfectly. Watching the video is both educational and interesting. Now I know about the choke tie, how to sley the reed on a table, how to move the cross, how to warp with multiple threads, etc. I know why I shouldn't finger comb my warp and how to properly pull it tight to create an even tension. There was a lot that I didn't know and seeing it done is so much easier than reading about it. Finally even though this wasn't a 'weaving' video I got to see an 8 shaft loom in progress and wow, what a lovely design. (Now I'm wanting an 8 shaft loom). If you're new to weaving it'd help if you brush up on the terms so you can follow the video easily (reed, dent, shaft, sley, etc). I've watched it twice and will use it as a reference resource as I plan my next warp. There are a few spots where the hands cover the action but if you keep watching the camera does come back and show how it's done. I was very pleased with this DVD and highly recommend it.

    Newbie on Board
    I'm a Newbie, with a beautiful loved 1984 Baby Wolf. I have watch (you tube) and read trying to figure out how to use the warp board but mainly having trouble with the cross and threading. After watching the first time I warp with Crochet Shein and weft with sock yarn to make book marks (:)) I had tried to warp BTF prior to this DVD. This time it was FTB, it works great for me. I though Madelyn has a wonderful speaking voice, (Not boring). Like anything new it take time, repeat watching is very helpful. Print: It would be nice to a have a version for a 4-shaft for the scarf. I can only say good things about this DVD. Review by Karen Haynes (Posted on 2/2/2011)
    A very helpful DVD
    I loved this DVD! I appreciated her clear, detailed instructions and mentioning when something didn't matter. I am a new weaver, and this was just what I needed to give me more confidence. Warping has not been my favorite part of weaving, but this has given me a new point of view. I highly recommend it and intend to share it with my study group. Review by Betz Frederick (Posted on 2/2/2011)
    Title Misleading
    I got a loom for Christmas, being a brand new weaver and not knowing all the new terminology, I wish it would have been very clear in the written description of the DVD that sectional warping was not included as that is what I have. So it was pretty much a waste of money for me. Granted I should have watched the preview and not just ordered it. It did help with winding your warp and I picked up a few tips, but they sure were expensive tips. Review by Nancee Quinn (Posted on 1/21/2011)
    Very good information and presentation
    I've watched instructional DVDs before and some of them are like watching paint dry. This one is not. She moves through the process quickly and efficiently while giving complete and easy descriptions of what she's doing. Good tips at a great pace. I'm not sure that teaching people (new weavers) to hold the cross in their hand is the best way. Higher thread count warps would be harder to hold without a mishap. She does a good job of covering "if it was a longer warp" though since she's only working with 4 yards. I would highly recommend this to new and experienced weavers. Review by Betty Ann Lloyd (Posted on 1/20/2011)
    a good reference tool
    I have watched the 2-DVD set titled "Warping Your Loom" by Madelyn van der Hoogt and here is my review. Positive: It was very liberating. She did all the work by herself. She simplified the process and explained why people warp the way they do. She loosened the grip on all the hard and fast rules that a new weaver may have had planted in his or her head. She offered lots of alternative ways to complete the process to suit an individual's circumstances or style. Her tone is very comforting. Negative: This DVD may not be suitable for someone who has never seen warping before. The camera-person was either not a weaver or was an expert weaver and therefore not tuned in to what a newbie needs to see. The camera angles were poorly executed at times. They usually made up for it with close ups or angle changes on subsequent shots but at the moment she says, "Like this...", I prefer to have the camera showing me precisely what she means. There is a free pattern and some other PDF helpful guide pages included in the DVD. Bottom line: It is a good tool to have as a reference and it served my purpose for making the purchase. Next time they need a better camera-person. P.S. She has a beautiful studio with really lovely equipment. Review by Nicolette Carter (Posted on 1/19/2011)
