Rainer says the video is now live on Taprootvideo.com. Watch the preview at https://www.taprootvideo.com/preview_class.jsf?iid=7&cid=3
Check out the PDF handout that accompanies the video. The handout gives you a pretty good idea of the content. For instructions on how to actually do the fingerweaving, how to use the patterns in the handout .... you'll have to watch the video.
Instructions begin at a no-experience-necessary level. Make a friendship bracelet, and twist the fringes to finish. Projects are ordered stepwise, from simple to more complex, and are sufficiently interesting to keep expert weavers occupied. As in the book Fingerweaving Untangled, you get help with tips to check your work, how to identify "irregularities" (aka mistakes), what to do about them, how to avoid them in the future. Make bags, belts, and scarves without a loom!
The announcement is that live-streaming is available starting now. For those with slow internet, or who would just prefer the DVD, well, they are making them as I type this, but the process is rather slow. The hard-copy DVDs will not be available until late January ... I am taking pre-orders.
Announcing a release date for the DVD titled Fingerweaving Instructions. You will be able to live-stream this video on the Taprootvideo.com site starting sometime on Saturday, December 21. The information is being transfered as I write this to a company that will print the video onto DVD discs. Unfortunately that takes a bit longer. The printing company says I should have DVDs ready to mail to you by January 30. To pre-order the DVD click here. Pre-orders will receive a discount, and delivery will happen as soon as the discs arrive.
The video is almost 2 1/2 hours long, because it covers so much material: how to set up, how to manipulate the threads, how to check for errors (how to avoid errors in the first place) and a variety of patterns .... all the patterns in the photo are covered. The video also provides instruction on reading patterns. Yes there's a PDF with printed versions of the patterns.
Once you've made it through the initial set of patterns, the video shows you how to work the arrow-and-lightning pattern, as well as the bulls eye pattern at the center.
Now, fingerweaving usually results in a flat rectangular shape ... as a bonus, the video shows you how to make a curly neckscarf.
Log in to Taprootvideo.com to register for the on-line streaming. Limited time as well as lifetime streaming options will be available this weekend.
The video instructions for fingerweaving is getting ever closer to reality. Now to unveil the cover design:
Final edits are presently happening. The master disc will soon be sent for duplication, and I'll be taking orders.
If you want to see what all is covered in the movie, have a look at the table of contents.
Accompanying the DVD is a 13 page PDF handout, containing printed versions of the patterns discussed (the movie tells you how to read the patterns). I'll be posting the handout soon.
