Elizabeth Wagner has put together 19 YouTube videos covering all the basic information you need to weave on a floor loom!  Free!

She goes slowly and carefully from the very basics to twisting the fringe and wet finishing your project. Each video is only about 10 minutes long.

No soaring orchestral backgound music, no flashy transitions between shots… just good plain instruction. Here’s the link.

We found Elizabeth thru a glowing recommendation from Marieta in MO on the Yahoo Weaving Group.

A quote from her website:

"I have become engrossed in weaving... in particular Tape and Band Loom Weaving.
So much so, that I have written a simple to follow book 
on the History of this ancient craft in Early America, English versions and Scandinavian bands as well."

"Tape Loom Weaving... Simplified by Regina Britton

But... also take a look at the history of her yellow clay pottery!
