Instructional DVD --- WEAVING - How to Warp a Sectional Loom --- self-produced and self-distributed
I am offering for sale my very own --How To Warp a Sectional Loom -- video, available in both DVD or VHS format.
This would be an great addition to any weaver's library of DVD's, and would make a great gift to the weaver in your family.
This DVD is a friendly visit to my loom room, and in a chatty method of teaching, I will show step-by-step how I warp up a sectional loom.
Years ago, weavers learned how do to things at the elbow of other weavers. So consider this new DVD technology to be saving you the time and gas to drive all way to my Loom Room in the Northwoods of Wisconsin! But of course, if you would like to stop by, the coffee pot is always on---
Starting with the basic tools and planning the warp color order for the rack, I show the reasons and methods I utilize to get perfectly wound warps with little or no mishaps. My dialog is peppered with helpful hints and tricks to make your warping process easier. Although there is no right way or wrong way to do most anything... this video will help you to understand what I do and why I do it, and why my warps are nice and neat and evenly tensioned.
By no means is this a professionally created production. It's just me in a T-shirt and shorts, chatting to you with my video camera on a tripod. What it lacks in glamour of fancy productions and graphics, it is chock full of the meat and potatoes of sectional warping! Just as if you were sitting right there by my side.
When I thought I was done with the filming, giving a nice little closure; I decided I needed to add a few more tips. So there are a few PS Segments at the end: why I thread with a long hook, my special warp saving hint with diluted glue, and my favorite method for chaining sock loopers for rugs. Those are a few of the most requested hints that I have been asked for over the years on the various weaving lists I am on. So those hints are a bonus to the warping information!
When I go to someone's house to teach them sectionally warp a loom, I charge $30 plus mileage. So this is a bargain and we both save gas!
very good ! My loom is the same as hers, so must helpful. Good instructions.

I loved this DVD. She gives lots of wonderful tips. I think this DVD was informative and will help you to learn warping a sectional loom and help you decide if it is an item that you want to add to your loom...the sectional warping beams can be expensive additions.
