Learn to weave...

Weaving is a create, inspiring craft that has been around for thousands of years. You too can weave shawls, dishtowels, pillows, scarves, rugs, placemats, runners, bags, garments, throws and and and!

It is easier than you might think! With the right loom you will be weaving in no time, even if you are a beginning weaver. Give us a call and we can help you find the right weaving loom for you!

Choosing a loom...

So you want to learn how to weave, but which weaving loom should you get?

Is a rigid heddle loom right for you, or do you need a four harness table loom, or perhaps a floor loom? With so many weaving looms to choose  from it is often confusing and difficult to make the right choice. Here are some tips:

If you are a beginning weaver, and you are not sure if weaving is for you, you might want to consider a smaller loom such as a Kromski Rigid Heddle Loom, Ashford Rigid Heddle loom or Schacht Rigid Heddle Loom. These compact rigid heddle looms are very versitale, easy to master, even for a brand new weaver, and very cost effective.

Does this mean a beginner should never jump right into weaving on a four harness table loom or floor loom? No, by all means, you can teach yourself how to weave on these weaving looms as well, but we strongly recommend that you take a weaving class, ask your weaving friend to guide you or purchase a "how to" weave DVD so that your weaving experience is a pleasant one.

Floor and table looms with four or eight harnesses will open a whole new world of weaving for you. The sky's the limit and you can let your imagination go wild. Weaving with a four harness loom will take a bit more effort and practice than a rigid heddle loom, but allows for more weaving possibilities.

Larger weaving looms will also need more space, not only for the loom itself but also for warping the loom (you will need space in front and in the back of the loom for this) for accessories, such as a warping board or warping mill, yarn, books, shuttles etc.

A bit of a warning...once your hooked your hooked and weaving will be one of your passions for life. :-)

Happy Weaving
