This "Learn To Weave on the Rigid Heddle Loom" booklet is one in a series of "Learn To" books published by the world-renown spinning, weaving, and wool mill company Ashford, New Zealand.
We recommend picking up a copy to have as a basis for terms, basics, and handing to a friend once you are advancing through topics on your weaving journey!
Although this book centers on the table loom, it refers to concepts in working with shaft or harness looms rather than Rigid Heddle, so will help any new weaver on floor looms as well.
Here are some helpful How-To videos below that we recommend to get you started. As always, used equipment and fiber art equipment in general has MANY variations, and we're here for you to contact with specific Q's and Pics so you can get to weaving as quickly as possible!
