"I want to thank Claudia and Craftsy for making this class available. The project could be done on any loom, even a handmade loom from four pieces of wood, and the materials required are whatever you happen to have in the way of beads and yarn. Nothing expensive is required and I was able to recycle all sorts of things into my project. I had some old jewelry that I took apart for beads and had lots of leftover sport-weight knitting wool and embroidery floss for the warp and weft. I would highly recommend this class to others, regardless of their stash of beads and yarn or whatever loom they might own or make. Thanks again for a great way to learn new techniques. "
