Today's episode will probably not be filmed because everyone is snowed in at home. Noisy! If I can get a clear spot of time I will but sadly, no guarantees. Everyone stay warm and safe.

PVC tablet/card loom

Ah, being new to a thing! I make an error here. The short bar at the back that turns in its joints is not the cloth take-up bar. Instead, it holds the threads which are waiting to be used. The cloth take-up bar will be the short bar nearest the weaver.

This is a really, REALLY old way of weaving narrow bands, the elastic and whatnot of the pre-elastic era. As I mention, this is a really, really inexpensively-begun weaving habit - this loom cost me less than $10 for those parts I didn't already have around the house. I used poster board for the cards and mention that some will go buy a pack of playing cards to use for cards, but plenty of people reportedly do fine with their first few projects using some cardboard sourced from cereal boxes.

Plus mild extras - stray cats and sewing!
