Warp without worry!

Trouble-free techniques for winding, sleying, threading, beaming, and more.

Learn to warp without worries! Handwoven editor emerita and owner of The Weavers‘ School Madelyn van der Hoogt shows how to make warping more smooth, serene, and successful with logical, easy-to-follow steps that avoid the horrors of tangling, uneven tension, and lost threads. Wind your warps quickly and effortlessly. Keep them aligned and under control from warping board to beam. Find threading errors and fix them before you weave. 

Tension is good for warps, bad for weavers. From front to back, back to front, bobbin to beam, and paddle to raddle, Madelyn’s no-worry warping techniques help ensure that your every warp will deliver a satisfying weaving experience.

A Word From the Instructor: 

"The reason that I think a video on warping is so important, is that I think it's very difficult to tell in words what a person should do to get a warp on the loom so that it's successful. I've done many articles [and] handouts, and I've explained warping up and down. But when I have students at my school that I show how to do warping, they learn so much better. So this video is a way to make that happen without coming to the school." — Madelyn van der Hoogt 

What Other Weavers Are Saying:

 "For 25 years I've hated to warp. It's actually kept me from weaving as much as I'd like. I now love to warp. I'm looking forward to adding new options and tricks to my bag of warping knowledge, but I got what I wanted – help developing a solid warping technique. This video will be my teacher and friend for a long time to come." — DEBBI, SAN ANTONIO, TEXAS

SO helpful!!

“I have watched this video every time I have begun a new project. I don't get to weave often so the refresher is most helpful. I enjoy Madelyn's clarity and wry sense of humor; it takes some of the tension out of the whole process for me. I have learned something new each time I have watched this video and I'm so grateful to have it available for repetition.” - Sue Thompson

Really helpful

“I’ve been weaving for a couple of years entirely self taught but I’ve always had an issue with my warp. I hate the warping process! This course has been so helpful and I’m inspired to get going with my next project. ” - KERRY POPE

Mystery of warping methods revealed!

“As a brand new floor loom weaver this was so enlightening! Seeing the different methods and tools and the WHY and how to use them is so valuable . Madelyn does not fill the video with chatter that takes away from what’s important.” - Jodi Savage
