In Warping Your Loom, Master weaver Madelyn van der Hoogt tackles the often frustrating task of the warp. She'll walk you through different methods of warping so you can begin weaving yarn in a way that is comfortable for you. Madelyn will explain how tension is good for your warps, but awful for weavers. By eliminating the horrors of tangling, irregular tension and lost threads, you'll be warping and weaving with ease. Once you've mastered your new weaving techniques, you can find more creative inspiration from projects in Madelyn's book, The Weaver's Idea Book.

A Word From the Author:

"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 a 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
