rigidheddleweaving.com's goal is to teach the art of weaving, for free, to make this information available to the masses regardless of their social status.
Hand looms are kind to the earth. They require no scarce resources, provide self-employment, rebuild communities and keep alive a heritage that humanity must be proud of. You can't put a price on that.
This project has not received any special funding. It's a project of the heart. To change the world, we have to change our incentive for doing things. I do this simply for the act of giving. It makes me feel good.
Until the rest of the world has a change of heart and incentive for doing things follows, projects like this will take money to keep them going. If you would like to support this project and keep all this great FREE weaving information available to the masses regarless of their status in life, please donate. I accept donations in the way of coin, materials, equipment, or by commissions through sales at my Amazon affiliate store.
I also sell handwovens at http://joyofweaving.com. Sales from joyofweaving.com goes towards supporting this project.
None of this project can come out of my household budget. Support from people like you keep it alive. We are on a fixed income with very limited resources, so any help is very, very, very much appreciated. I dream of owning good video equipment and DVD/R's to provide good quality weaving tutorials that I can ship out for free for those with limited/bandwidth metered internet who can't spend all day viewing videos online or attend paid-for classes.
Thanks for visiting and thanks for your support. You will have my eternal gratitude.
