"Knowing how great the other Craftsy classes that I took had been, I signed up for Janet's class. Thank goodness I did, or (my new) loom might have been kindling for the fireplace! I watched the entire class before I started in again. Janet not only taught about how the loom works, but her tips and tricks proved invaluable when I found out that half my heddles were in wrong! Then I watched the class step by step to wind a warp, dress the loom, and actually weave some cloth. I've since dressed the loom several times on my own; once again with Janet, and by myself since then. And the loom is no longer in danger of becoming kindling!"
