So easy to weave Huck Lace on a Rigid Heddle loom!

“What a great course. There are short videos for each of the three types of huck laces to weave. I was intimidated about doing more than plain weave on my rigid heddle; but this course was a real eye opener. So easy to use pick up sticks and create more interesting weave structures. Thank you for this course!” - Lyn Kathlene
