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 ...
I'm not a new weaver, but took this class to see if I could pick up new tips or more efficient methods. There were some wonderful tips and time and energy saving methods. Well worth the $$.

Knowing how great the other Craftsy classes that I took had been, I signed up for Janet's class. Thank goodness I did, or this loom might have been kindling ...
I had woven a bit on a table loom but was gifted a floor loom. The size of it is like a piano and was intimidating. Not only did Janet's class help me to make the mechanical translation between table and floor, she demystified some of the technical aspects of planning a project.

I hope there will be more floor loom ...
