hello - i'm jeanamarie - new here at craftster.  i'm just getting back into weaving, i have a tapestry frame loom.  i am thinking i will just start with a smapler and relearn a few techniques - any tips for getting started, specifically which techniques would be good to relearn first? - it's a bit overwhelming - i haven't done this in years!

Betty Davenport's book on surface weaves using Rigid Heddle should be fairly doable on your loom. (Maybe not all...)
It is a revamping of an older text that hadn't been printed for a long time. One class of weavers at the weaving studio I go to is working through them and the results are quite lovely.

A few of them are making a belt using the sampler techniques.
