Wonderful introduction
Very informative and well explained. Tom Knisely is an excellent teacher. Maybe a sequel with more details? One video can't cover everything. Review by Inga (Posted on 1/18/2014)
Enjoyable and encouraging
I believe that Tom not only has the gift of weaving but he has a delightful way of teaching. I hope to weave my first rug in the upcoming year. I will watch this video again before begin warping and loading my loom.

Sincerely,

Buying weaving machine firstly
I am interesting on buying the books but I think it was better first to buy this machine before everything: I have a background of how to weave and few patterns I had learned them before Review by Jannet (Posted on 11/26/2013)
