Frequently Asked Questions

I highly recommend a basic knowledge of dressing a loom to get the most out of the class. You are welcome to nab the Front-to-Back Dressing the Loom Checklist right here, which will help remind you of your next steps.

Class is geared towards at least a 2-shaft loom. A rigid heddle, 4-shaft or 8-shaft loom will work beautifully. You can apply most of the concepts to a tapestry loom as well.

Nope. Matter of fact, I encourage you to only use what you have. It is entirely unnecessary to purchase any new materials. Now, if you want an excuse to buy more yarn, be my guest! Yarn is SO fun to buy – I get it. But it is not required.

You can easily cruise through the digital class in an afternoon. However, setting up your loom and following along the class project will take a number of hours. Don’t sweat – it’ll be worth it!
If for any reason this class does not meet your expectations, please reach out to me at chris@actoncreative.net. My goal is to always provide an outstanding experience to my students. But if for some reason the class is not what you were expecting, I will provide a 100% refund within 15 days of purchase.
Over, Under, Over, Under is meant for the beginning weaver looking for what to do next, and for the experienced weaver who has been away from their loom for a while. Anyone who is excited to dive deeper into the world of plain weave is welcome.

Over, Under, Over, Under will not go through the process of setting up a loom. It won’t discuss any other weaving patterns besides plain weave. And it won’t get technical with the inner workings of a loom. If you are looking for something that isn’t included in the class, I encourage you to skip this class. And if you are feeling inspired, send me a note letting me know what you’re interested in. I’m always brainstorming the next class.

You will have access for a full year.

You are welcome to reach out to me at chris@actoncreative.net at any time. Each student will receive a personalized message from me each week for 3 weeks, following up with you and checking on your progress. My goal is for each student to not only finish the class, but implement the various techniques. So I’ll be stopping in to say “hi” to everyone along the way. Also, I am live on Facebook every Thursday morning at 9:30 CST for Live At The Loom. You are invited to toss me any questions there, as well.

Yes! Over, Under, Over, Under will definitely be available for purchase in 2021. However, because I strive to improve the class each time I release it, it is very likely that the price will increase with future iterations.

Celebrate!! Finishing anything is a big accomplishment. But I would LOVE to see your final projects once you’ve completed them. Send images to me at chris@actoncreative.net. I have big plans to brag all about my students on the website and social media. I can’t wait!
