Inkle Weaving Video

Today marked a technology evolution for us at Schacht. We published our first how-to video: Weaving on the Inkle Loom. It is a short, 10-minute no frills how-to lesson on warping and weaving on our Schacht Inkle Loom with instructions for weaving a band. You’ll also find the complete instructions for this band in our Spring 2008 on-line newsletter. Why are we entering the world of video? Because there just isn’t enough information out there for the general public. If you don’t have a local yarn store, where can you see this technique demonstrated? Now, we too are on YouTube. Check back from time to time to see what video we’ve come up with next. Better yet, send in your requests and we’ll ad your wishes to our list of future videos.
