Great course!

I loved this course, It was very thorough and held in an calm and un intimidating manner. I learned lots of smart little tips and got answers to a few things I have been wondering about. This is a great class for any beginning weaver and probably for the not so beginning weavers as well. It made me believe I can do it too!

Fantastic Class!

This is one of my favorite classes on Craftsy, and I have a lot! I have been weaving on a rigid heddle loom, and I decided to buy this class to see what floor weaving is all about.

Best Teacher Ever

I've been taking weaving classes for about a year. I have learned more from this class than I have from my weaving classes. Janet is an excellent teacher.

Having classes for different yarns and techniques would be great. I am glad I purchased this class, worth every penny!

A great reference tool

I have had this class for a while now. It is my number reference source. I am a new weaver, so every time I warp the loom I have this video with me. As I dress the loom, I can either follow along with Janet, or check to make sure I am doing it correctly.

This class has such is extensive. I paid $150 for a class 10 years ago that covered about 10% of what is covered in this class. The price of this class is pennies compared to my local classes. Plus I get to play it again and ...
