If you are interested in showing support for my design and production process but aren’t ready to commit to a mending loom for yourself, pledges of $30 or more will get you my eternal appreciation, and a set of sew-in cotton patches* that you can use to mend stuff in the meantime (until you treat yourself to a Swift Darner or a vintage loom and you get hooked on darning everything).
*or a zero-waste cutlery keeper – your choice. I’ll ask your preference in a post-campaign survey.
Because I still want to offer an incentive to early supporters if this limited run of looms sells out, backers at this level get a custom coupon for 25% off your purchase of a Swift Loom when it is for sale outside of Kickstarter.

Pledge $74 or more to pre-order a Swift Darner mini mending loom. Your pledge will give me motivation to keep this project going, and you’ll get one of the Very First versions of this little tool handmade by me :)
With a pledge of $99 or more you won’t just get a handmade mending loom, you’ll also get a zippered project bag (made, of course, from upcycled material) to keep your loom and ongoing small project in (or stash whatever you want)! Throughout this campaign, I’ll be posting the project bags that are up for grabs on my Instagram page (@beyondrepair519), so if you pledge at this level keep an eye out to call dibs on yours. A little sewing will help keep my work day balanced while in production mode in the woodshop :)
As any artisan of anything knows, the profit margin on small-scale is very, very slim. You’ll make my whole week if you choose to value my work higher than I do! If you choose to pledge $120 or more, you will get everything from level 3 PLUS the extra cash will help me to fund research, marketing and tools that I need to more easily make these looms. My methods are quite rudimentary right now (you’ll see it all through my campaign updates), but with the right tools and techniques my design will improve even more, and it will be even easier for me to help you to help yourself mend all the things :)
If you back at this level you'll also get your reward a month earlier!
For those of you with a local mend-circle who want to pitch together for a whole set of looms! This reward is limited to 2 lucky backers as I am still working on logistics for bulk orders like this, but I thought it'd be worth the experiment!
