Free on-line classes

I discovered this site a few months ago, when looking for information on inkle-weaving.

As far as I can make out there are no catches, and I have not received any spam as a result of signing up for their newsletters. As you can see there will be several different parts to the courses they offer, as and when these are written.

The usual disclaimer: I have no affiliation, etc.

This class is supposed to start today.  I signed up although I am taking Darryl Lancaster's Inkle Weaving class at Convergence.  I just finished sewing a tote for my small inkle loom and want to weave a strap for the tote.  I thought that this Loom Merchant class would be great for that.  I have my threads and am ready to start warping my larger inkle loom but I don't know if they want a specific warp pattern.

Has anyone heard anything?

All I had from them was an email saying they were posting the first lesson, no links or anything. I did follow the link in the lesson to the blog belonging to the inkle weaver who has provided the samples - she has some lovely stuff I must get back to check up on. I love her use of colour.

 I've signed up for the class and can use all the help I can get. '-)  No problems yet so I appreciate all the help I can get with inkle weaving!

This morning I received this email from The Loom Merchant..

Hello Classmate,
The doors are open and the first parts of the course are posted.  WE decided to post The Introduction and Parts 1, 2, and 3 together.  We will be adding to the course after the Holiday.   So look for Parts 4, 5, 6, and the Conclusion soon.
Thank You,
