Recommended Weaving Teachers & Resources

We get questions all the time from new and new-ish weavers looking for online resources to learn weaving and improve their skills, so today we wanted to compile some of our favorite websites and teachers. And of course, if you have access to a local shop or weaver's guild where you can learn in person from other weavers, you should absolutely seek out those opportunities.
