Weaving Al Fresco...

loom

Saturday afternoon was the perfect time to try out my new triangular loom that my Dad made for me. And to make the process even more enjoyable, it was cool enough to take it outside.

Check out the beautiful workmanship of the loom. My Dad painstakingly placed the brass brads ever so carefully for precision weaving. I LOVE it! If you haven't tried weaving yet, you should! It's fun and relatively fast and yields beautiful fabric.

  1. I purchased a loom similar to this one at a thrift store and I have a table loom but not sure where to start learning. Do you have any websites to recommend? Thanks

  2. Thanks for your comments. I like Carol Leigh's video on weaving, she's a master. You can find her products & information here: http://hillcreekfiberstudio.com/

  3. OMG! I have been coveting one of these looms for a while. I will have to wait until we move to a bigger place. Right now, I have a 24 rigid heddle and assorted small weave-it type looms.
