I designed this frame loom to be so easy to use, it's like a sketch pad for weaving! I'll make a weaving on it and send the kit to you!

100 mini-tapestries (on a functional loom!)

$5,588

Weaving is really satisfying, but can seem like a big commitment! I've been working for many years on developing weaving tools that reduce frustration to a minimum while allowing maximum self-expression and enjoyment. This funky lil frame loom is the current expression of this, my life project. It's a loom you can set up in less time than it takes to make an embarrassing kickstarter video! And though the weaving space is limited to 5 by 9 inches, you can fit a lot in that space, I'll show you how, by making 100 awesome funky lil weavings, (if you want an original artwork you can order one) and I'll videotape the techniques involved. So if you just want a lil loom to start from scratch yourself, you can order the kit without the art! Kit comes with Frame, Stand, Wiggle Heddle Unit, Comb, Shuttle and Needle.

Risks and challenges

I just need to be sure that Soulmind in Emeryville has the time and inclination to laser cut my looms, but this has never been a problem. Likewise I need to make sure I'm obsessive and manic enough to make 100 lil weavings but that's never been an issue before.
The delivery times are exaggerated I'm sure everything will go much more quickly.

    Funky lil loom kit, no weaving

    Funky lil weaving on a funky lil loom

    I'm testing out your new loom kit by making an experimental design, using tapestry and pile weaving techniques in cotton and wool. Once you pop my weaving off the loom you can make your own weaving using the frame and accessories provided!
