Sara Lamb's students rave about her book, her workshops and her techniques. Her workshop at MAFA 2017 is a unique opportunity to learn from her and be inspired by a community of fiber artists! Register at http://www.mafa-conference-2017.org/workshop-registration/
I made a list of the key tips I've learned since acquiring this loom on my blog at http://www.filamenti.net/2017/02/getting...
Registration is open to everyone. The conference price doesn't get any better--and that's because MAFA's leadership team is composed entirely of volunteers. How can you beat a 2 1/2 day workshop with a world-class instructor, room and board for three days/nights and lots of other activities? You can't!
I can certainly agree with you about the usefulness of the manual with old AVLs--it's not, but that's because the manual wasn't available until a later loom than mine. My dobby is actually labeled Ahrens and Violette and it's number 00129. AVL estimates it was made 1980-82. There is a discussion--and a photo--in the thread "New-to-me AVL loom". If your loom is like this one, it's a folding loom, sometimes called a Witch loom. I can provide some help as I've just been through this phase recently. (I do hope you don't have major assembly)
I was torn. Sounds good AND I've heard nothing but good about him and the courses he's taught.
