Great info, great teaching style

I've woven on large floor looms, but recently decided to try a rigid heddle loom. Read a couple of books, made a couple of projects, but really didn't have a sense of how to explore the creative possibilities until taking this class.

Deborah's lessons are very well planned so you can see how to do each technique step by step. She proceeds at a good pace--not too fast and not too slow.
There are lots of different techniques to learn in the class using pick-up sticks which really transforms the weaving to a ...
