It all started when I was cruising Youtube and ran into this video with Travis Meinolf.
When that piqued my intereset, I did a little more research on weaving and found The String Page which included a very simple DIY for making, and weaving with, tablets. I had a lot of cereal box cardboard to cut up and use, so I gave it a try. I was hooked! I saved some money and eventually got a rigid heddle loom and the rest is history.
Here's a video showing that you don't need much to get started weaving, or to just try it out and see if it's something you'll enjoy.
