Question Asked:

Hello, can anyone recommend a really good written tutorial on how to use a loom. I'm sorry, but I am a complete beginner and am really looking for something that starts right at the beginning and explains everything simply.

I love YouTube, but I can't really follow the video tutorials, everything flies past so quickly. And if you want to hear something again, you have all that fiddly bit of rewinding and trying to find the right place. I find it very difficult and frustrating really, if you want to learn something. I'm probably a bit of a slower learner than most.

I really would rather, just read a nicely written tutorial, at my own pace. If something is written, I can go through it nice and slowly and really take everything in. I would love a tutorial that has lots of images, maybe annotated, and a clear explanation of each step.

So, sorry, I still haven't explained what I have. Basically, my husband came home one day, with this beautiful loom. He knows I have been looking for something like this for a while and he actually went out and found one himself for me. And it is beautiful. He said, unfortunately the previous owner of the loom had passed and he had bought it from a family member. So there really wasn't much information he could get about it. Let alone any directions on how to use it. All we know is that the loom was much loved and was used frequently, so it definitely was functional.

So this is why I am completely new to how to use a loom. As a complete novice, it doesn't actually look like there are any pieces missing. Well, as far as we can tell.

It actually already has threads in it and looks partially setup for some project that was happening. But as I said I'm a complete beginner. So it would be amazing if someone could recommend a book or online written tutorial on how to use a loom.

Any loom experts, thanks in advance.
