The loom is a great bonus. But it’s the lessons that are the true prize.
Tekka !!

Amanda said...

Congrats on 10k YouTube followers! Your videos are a great reference for new weavers like me. I have three looms and I can’t wait to get another. And I didn’t realize you had an online weaving school!

Charlotte DesRoches said...

Congratulations Kelly!!!!❤

Mandy Wright said...

Congratulations Kelly on 10000 subscribers. I love your classes and I'm grateful I have someone like you to learn from. I'm in love with looms ��

Misse Jensen said...

Congratulations with the subscribers ❤️
I love your videos and would love to win the lessons to learn more, and the loom is a lovely gift as well

Carrie Johnson said...

I would love to win, so I can make beautiful stuff and expand my learning of the weaving technique.

Patricia Douglas said...

This loom would help me so much. I am a disabled veteran and learned about weaving a few years ago. Bought a small SampleIt and enjoy working on it. Now I'm ready to work on something larger.
As everyone has mentioned, the classes would be the best part. I enjoy watching videos to give me ideas of new things to try.
Thanks for offering this prize. And a big congrats on your achievement!!!

I have been so inspired by your classes. When life got hard weaving brought such a sense of peace and accomplishment. I look forward to learning even more.

I’m a newbie and I’d love to actually practice what I watch you do all the time. Thank you for the possible opportunity!

Marie said...

Thank you for this wonderful raffle and congrats on your success. I’ve watched all your lessons, even if the ones that are too advanced for me. I watch them over and over again. I am slowly getting more confident. I always learn something. Id like a second rigid heddle loom, as I would like to have more than one project going.

Christina Waldner said...

Congratulations! Awesome accomplishment. I’d love to win to add another Ashford product to my collection. I’m a bit of an addict, too.

Valentina Cuadrado said...

Congratulation, Kelly, for your success. Learning is important to me. prizes are both great,but getting inspiration and knowledge is more precious for me. Thanks

Cristina Magee said...

Congratulations on the 10.000 subscribers! I have learnt so much from your videos, I am really grateful for the time, the inspiration and the knowledge you have shared with us. Whenever I am in doubt on how to proceed, I know I'll find a solution in your classes :)

I would love to win a loom, I am new to weaving and I've watched several of your videos already! I would LOVE to be able to learn more from your classes 😀 Thanks so much for offering such a fun giveaway!

Marjan said...

Congratulations! What a wonderful Give-Away. If I should win I would ask you to give the Rigid Heddle Loom to someone else, but I would really be very happy with your lessons! (I am a budgetweaver, my husband builded me a rigid heddle loom himself)
Thank you for all your open video's so far, they are só helpfull!
Greetings out of Holland.

I'm a new weaver, so the lessons and the loom would be great.
Thank you for sharing your knowledge, I hava already learnt so much from your videos!

Ruth said...

Congratulations! But not surprising as anyone who sees your posts will recommend you to all their fibrey friends. The loom looks ideal to take away on on holiday when I whinge about being parted from my stuff!!

Pat Collingwood said...

Well done. Would love to win this loom it is more portable than my 80cm plus one.

Chris said...

I love your patterns. This loom would be amazingly versatile, I’m working with the small sample it right now.

tweetys at home said...

Kelly, I've been chatting with you for over a year now, first on your youtube channel, then I subscribed to your blog, and then I did the same with your new channel that you have with lessons. Problem is, I still don't have a loom! lol Trying to get on my feet since my last back surgery and some problems that arose from that, life is good again and i'm still in awe of your work and wanting so very much to join in!! lol Rather I win or not, I will still watch and be envious of your students until I can join in with them!! lol Your a lovely teacher and your so very talented in how you teach...its like sitting down with a friend! Thank you so much! God Bless!! Jody

LindaY said...

Rafflecopter is a bit of a mystery to me, but I hope this will do, for my comment.

I'm a beginning weaver and have tried several rigid heddle looms - a Glimakra, a Schacht 24", and a very old "Mystery Manufacturer" loom. Having an Ashford 40 cm loom would be a fun and portable way to approach weaving! Having a subscription to your classes would be even better, and something I'd look forward to throughout the year. I'm sure they would help me become a better weaver! Your woven snowmen and gifts are wonderful!

Congratulations on reaching 10,000 subscribers on YouTube, and thank you for offering this prize!

Stacey said...

What a wonderful giveaway, thank you for the chance to win.
I would love to win because I'd love to own and learn to use a rigid heddle loom. I'm a visual learner, so videos teaching me how to weave would be perfect for me.

Kelly, I won't enter but I just wanted to congratulate you. Also I was wondering how your son is now. I hope he has made a complete recovery.

Lady Aquill said...

Hey Kelly! I've only just found your YouTube channel (like last night XD) i'm really interested weaving, particularly embroidery or tapestry weaving. i never knew that was a thing you could do on a loom. there's so much i would like to try if i had a loom. so much to learn too :) at the moment i'll just have to stick to my knitting needles and watch many many tutorials. Have a Merry Christmas!
Rebecca

Trina Petrina said...

Congratulations on reaching 10,000 subscribers on YouTube. Get set for many more. Your teaching ability speaks for itself. Your videos are clear and concise, making them easy to follow. Who wouldn’t like to win a 40cm Ashford Rigid Heddle loom? I know I would. Getting my stash of yarn sorted just in case :).

Kelly Casanova said...

Nanna Chel, thank you for asking, he is doing so very well and is looking forward to studying Screen and Media at RMIT next year :)

Dennise Brown said...

As a new RH weaver I enjoy the diversity of the RH.Have been using a 8"samplett to practice on but now ready to 'expand' to a larger loom.Enjoy your blog and your videos...thanks for the opportunity wigh this giveaway.

Hilary Edwards-Malam said...

Congratulations Kelly!
Thank you so much for offering this giveaway. The loom is a great prize but the lessons are even better! I love your clear instructions on YouTube and your honest and inspiring Instagram posts. Keep going!

Bianca Wenzel said...

I really love weaving and I was always a big fan of my Kromski harp. But since my Ashford SampleIt loom moved in, I had to improve my harp with some Ashford supplies. So now I'd like to have a real rigid heddle loom by Ashford to keep on weaving with your fantastic classes.
All the best from snowy icecold Germany, Bianca

Wildwood Weaver said...

I love weaving but also am passionate about keeping this art alive. I’d use a new loom to help promote weaving to new weavers! Thank you for all you do. You are fantastic!

Ressdell said...

Hi there, I would love to win, but as I already have 2 looms, you could pass the loom to the next person. As everybody else has said, the real prize is the lessons ��. Thank you!

erin backman said...

I would love to win this prize as a way to get more experience in weaving and be able to have free access to all of your classes would be such a wonderful thing.
And Congratulations on hitting 10 000 subscribers, well deserved!

Kelly said...

Congratulations Kelly! Thank you for such an amazing giveaway! I have watched your videos for about a year before I started weaving, took me that long to be able to afford a loom! Now My 9 year old wants a loom and loves to weave.

Foxfire said...

Oh how generous! This is just the Rigid Heddle I have been looking at! I am also a new weaver so the classes would be amazing! To win this would be wonderful <3 Congrats on 10k subscribers, that is a true milestone!

Jessica said...

What a great prize! Thank you!

Jennifer said...

Congratulations on the accomplishment! I want to win to start putting your lessons into practice, I can't wait to get started!

Mary Robers said...

Would love yo win to teach my daughter to weave. It has been such an exciting adventure for me!!!!!

Ibdmom said...

What fun! I'd love to add a new Ashford loom to my (growing) collection!

DoubleD said...

Wow! You've made Christmas even more exciting.

DoubleD said...

Who wouldn't want a new Ashford RH loom for Christmas? I have considered a new loom as mine is the old design without the pawl system to maintain tension. Perfect timing!

Bern said...

10 000 followers that is amazing, congratulations, your work is really inspiring. Here is to the next 10 000 followers.

DoubleD said...

I want to win the new loom and then give my older Ashford loom to someone with the desire to learn to weave but not able to purchase one. My memory of weaving for the first time goes back more than 60 years when I wove a basket in the craft room at the YMCA when I was in the third grade.

Chris F said...

I found your videos on Youtube and love the tutorials I've seen, so it would be awesome to win the subscription and be able to learn even more from you.

Bern said...

So I would love to win because I have these 2 daughter 12 + 14 yrs of age who are very creative and always googling up new projects. Weaving would be an amazing project and skill to learn to start weaving beautiful things. What an amazing gift.

WollGarten said...

Congratulation!
It would be so wonderful to get the loom and the weaver class! That would be my best Christmas present!
Merry christmas from germany!

Zainab Saad said...

Congratulations! I'm new to weaving and I find your YouTube videos very helpful. I don't have any weaving teachers around but your videos are as clear as having a teacher by my side.
Thank you for this giveaway.

Debby said...

Congratulations Kelly! This is a wonderful accomplishment! You deserve to be very proud!

Why would I like to win? Well of course, I would love to have a beautiful new rigid heddle loom, but I really would like a year's subscription to your channel!

Thank you!

Sharon Schmidt said...

Kelly, Congratulations and thank you for sharing the bounty! Win or not, it is a pleasure to learn from you and follow the
goings on of your sweet family on the other side of the earth! You are certainly a generous spirit.

Joyce Hartman said...

Congrats on 10000 subscribers!! I am a novice & your lessons would come in very handy not to mention the 20” loom that would be easier to bring out & take camping than my 32” Ashford!!

Teresa Broseke said...

Congratulations Kelly! Good for you! I love your teaching and your calm and kind ways. Thank you for offering this to us as well as your great classes!
Teresa Broseke

Ellen Keller said...

Congrats Kelly. I love your videos. I'm new to weaving, so new in fact I have yet to convince my husband that I really need a loom. I started researching Ashford rigid heddle looms when I found out that that's what you used. I really like the simple but sturdy design. This giveaway would make a great starter.

Lindsey said...

Hi Kelly! I first learned to weave by watching one of your rigid heddle videos, so thank you! I would like to win so that i can pass the gift of weaving to my mother, as well as my daughter.

Jennifer Coym said...

I love your videos! I just subscribed & I am currently trying double weave. I can’t wait to try all the techniques!

Pat M. said...

Congratulations Kelly on 10,000 subscribers! I have been a subscriber for over a year to your You-tube channel and subscribed to your teachable site s soon as it was set up. I, too, have watched your videos and lessons many times over and always get excited about trying something new. I am still a fairly new weaver and would love to have the Ashford loom as a smaller loom. Prayers are with you also for your son and I love this newsletter. Best wishes for continued success.

readalot said...

Congrats on getting so many subscribers. I love your videos they have been immensely helpful learning.

skturg said...

What a great giveaway! I subscribe to your newsletter and youtube videos. I am learning so much! Thank you for all the work that you do.

Christina Remter said...

I love all things fiber arts and would love to win a loom and classes. This is a great giveaway for a beginner like me especially since right now I can't afford a loom.

Christine said...

I want to win this prize because I think Kelly is an innovative weaver and I want to learn more and be inspired by her. Seriously who else thought of a way to weave snowmen into a towel!

Marna said...

Like everyone else I would like to win as I don't have a loom yet.
Congratulations on 10,000 subscribers.
I am really enjoying all the "eye candy" you have throughout your website and etsy shop.

Julie said...

If I won the loom I would be happy for you to donate it to someone in Australia who is disabled as I live in the UK and have enough looms. The best prize is the subscription to your wonderful classes. Happy Christmas to you and all the family. Hope you have a very special time after your horrible scare this year.

rhuddle2000 said...

I have a variety of looms but none I can take with me when I travel. I have 2 floor looms that together cost less than a new rigid peddle loom. It would be awesome to have one.

Pam said...

The classes are a great win, the Ashford loom would also be a great addition to my collection. I have not wove on an Ashford loom!!

Mary said...

Congratulations, on gaining 10,000 subscribers. You have earned every one of them. I would love to win your prize; however, when I try to enter it bumps me out and back to the blog page.

I have been watching and learning from you since I began weaving. Although I have only been weaving for a short time I believe your tutorials and advice has helped me through the trials of being a newbie.

I am ready for a new challenge on a larger loom. I have a 15inch cricket now.

Please help me to enter your contest. Mary msmorrison@comporium.net

Ellyn said...

wow! what an amazing prize! congrats on the subscribers

Penny F. said...

Kelly you really are the best teacher (in my humble opinion of course) for weaving. Your milestone is very well deserved!
Good luck to all for the loom. A very generous offer Kelly.

Jeastwood said...

Congrats on 10000 subscribers.

Susan M. said...

Wow! I'm iimpressed! But then again,I'm not surprised. You are a wonderful teacher.

Melissa said...

Congratulations on 10,000! Thank you for the generous giveaway!

Jodie Kay said...

Congrats on the huge achievement. Love YOU are getting the gift of seeing how many people’s lives you are touching and helping - and not just in weaving. Well done!

Debbie Hadfield said...

First let me congratulate you on reaching 10,000 viewers, what a fantastic achievement.
I first became interested in weaving after I participated in a rug make and take. After that event I spoke about the rug at a Knitting Guild meeting and found that some knitters were also spinners and weaver. From one of the ladies in our Knitting Guild I had the opportunity to purchase her floor loom.
The floor loom is great but there is not portability with that loom. If I had a rigid heddle I could take the loom to events that our Butler Spinners and Weavers Guild participates in across the state and at sheep to shawl events in neighboring states.

Thank you for this generous opportunity.
ps. I could not figure out the rafflecopter either.

Jean Fletcher said...

Thanks for doing this giveaway! I would give the loom to my daughter, since my 24 inch is just too big for her. I personally am most excited about the subscription, though!

Jo Gangestad said...

Congratulations Kelly. I discovered you when I was hose sitting in New Zealand last year and needehelp with a weaving project. Love your teachings

Sylvia said...

I want to win so I can give a loom to a dear friend of mine. I love Ashford so much.

Linda Stuart said...

I enjoy your lessons and I am as enthusiastic about Ashford looms as you are. I have one of their 32 inch ones. Having a smaller one would be great, as I could take it to more places in my home to use it.

Sarah Gilbert said...

Wow - 10,000 is huge! Congratulations
I would love to win the 40 cm loom! I've been wanting tt try an Ashford Loom!!

Java 1994 said...

Congrats on 10,000! you are quite the inspiration! Would love a loom for myself

Java 1994 said...

I could definitely use some weave skills!

Annalese said...

Congratulations on 10K subscribers! I'd like to win because a loom would be great for creating winter scarves; something to keep the family extra warm this winter.

Pat Buscher said...

Congratulations on 10,000 followers. I only recently subscribed and am enjoying your videos--seeing technique helps so much!

Ineke said...

Paula Walters said...

Congratulations Kelly! And thank you for all the wonderful videos on RH weaving, you really boost my confidence that I can weave anything. My favorite is weaving double width with two heddles.

Christi Gulledge said...

Oh my goodness you are so generous. I LOVE your classes and would be so happy to get another year. I’ve been thinking about buying a smaller loom (mine is 32 inches). I think I’ll cross my fingers and wait until after the drawing. Hugs and blessings. Christi

Mary said...

Congratulations Kelly! Thank you for your clear and patient tutorials. You have 10,000 subscribers because you've earned them :-)

Ann Keenan said...

Congratulations on 10k subscribers! I am new to weaving and would love to own this loom. I am borrowing one from a friend now, and am hooked on weaving after only three scarves! :) I've learned a lot from watching your videos, they are great! Thank you for putting them out there. To be able to get a year's worth of lessons from you would be amazing!!

The lessons would be such a prize! I've only just started weaving and as a stay at home mom to 3 kids under 7, it's hard to get out to classes.
Thanks for all you do!

Beth said...

As a new weaver this would be great to win.

Wendy said...

I would love to win for the weaving lessons!

lorrie said...

I love weaving. I love all things fiber........wish I had more of me and time to go around and enjoy it all! I usually weave a few projects per year. Now that I have found your classes, videos and blog I am sure I will be compelled to weave more things this year! Thank you!

Yehudit Platt said...

I would love to have another loom so i can work on 2 projects in parallel , especially when one is slow... love your lessons. Learnt so much!

Tamara Holman said...

The loom is lovely, I’d love to learn some new techniques too!

Congrats on 10k! I still don't have weaving loom but hope to have it. I like very much your work, the color combinations, texture and hope to be your student someday :-)

Patti said...

I love the idea of making my own fabric, and your videos are so inspiring.

VermontChick said...

Thank you Kelley. You offer some of the best instruction and information on the web for rigid heddle weaving. Very grateful!

Rosanna said...

Congratulations on achieving this wonderful milestone!!

I stumbled upon your YouTube videos while searching for something else and have become totally inspired to try weaving. I have not woven before so this would be something new to me. I would love to create some of those wonderful designs you demonstrate on your videos.

Dina said...

Congratulations on the 10.000 likes, well done!
I'd love this loom because it looks much more inviting and easier to use than the vintage loom I bought a while back. Although I have been wanting to learn how to weave for a while now (as I love all things yarn!) my own loom puts me a bit off and makes that I delay starting.
Well, here's hoping! Happy Holidays!

Stacia said...

I enjoy your YouTube videos and would love to have this loom! I am new to weaving and having this loom would be great!

hrgdane said...

I would love to win to add on another list of skills to my ever growing fiber addiction! Having a loom a would certainly get me in the right direction. Congratulations on hitting the 10K mark!

Your project photos are so enticing. Classes are great prices. Can't wait to sign up.

Fred Allum said...

Congratulations on having so many followers. I love watching you on YouTube. You have helped me and inspired me. Thank you.

Unknown said...

I just found your youtube channel the other week. I'd love to start weaving, but as a student I can't afford an ashford. Congrats on your followers, I'm looking forward to eventually learning to weave from you.

Teresa said...

Congratulations on 10,000+ subscribers! I love, love Ashford products, great craftsmanship. Happy Holidays.

Linda Penny said...

I have recently bought a loom and would love to spread the joy by winning a loom for my sister-in-law

BHudrlik said...

I would love to win the loom and lessons. I'm fairly new to weaving and the first time I had a question about weaving I googled my question and found one of your videos that gave me the answer. I've been a fan ever since!

Anonymous said...

Just getting started with the rigid heddle loom. While the larger loom would be appreciated, the year subscription to your classes would be the most valuable prize for me.

ma said...

I've thoroughly enjoyed your youtube videos. I don't have a rigid heddle loom, but have been yearning for one for months now.
This seems a good place (as I'm not likely to comment, generally), I'd like to 'second' others' compliments regarding the quality of your lessons. Everything is near perfect. No wasting time while you talk me through you walking across the room. You stop action and rejoin. What a gift! Yes. The photography. Never a problem seeing what you're talking about. Up close. Framed perfect. I suppose since you are the one who did all of this you already know what's well done. Clearly you have learned from others' mistakes and we're the better for it. Thanks!

Ольга Золотарева said...

I really enjoyed your youtube videos. I am a beginner, and your lessons are the best. I'm also a homeschooling mom of 6, so finding time is tricky but all wonderful weavers online are such a great inspiration to start my own weaving projects! I do own a 32" Ashford loom. I would love to have a smaller one to have projects with the kids and to take with me on the go. And a year of classes would be a real blessing too!
Congratulations on 10 000+ followers!

Samantha said...

I love all sorts of fiber arts, and have wanted to learn to weave for years. I'm sure the lessons you give are amazing - I've been watching your YouTube videos and they're great!

Kimberly @ Turning the Pages said...

I love that you're offering up a loom but the lessons to me are the most exciting prize!! Congratulations o. The 10,000 follower mark what an accomplishment :)

R Palmer said...

Outwardly I'm entering for my wife who is a fibre nut looking for a loom but inwardly I'm hoping that it's something i could pick up also.

Karen said...

I agree with you Kelly! I have been using Ashford products from the beginning and love them. This loom would be great as I think the size is perfect for taking with you and for at home use. There is a lot you can make with this width without even practically thinking......lol.

Unknown said...

What a wonderful prize!!! I would love to win the loom and the lessons especially since I am fairly new to weaving. I have a 32” Ashford but the smaller one would be great for smaller projects or for taking along when traveling.

Silver Penny Artisans said...
