Step-by-step instructions for 25 projects you’ll be amazed were made from pin loom weavings!
Pin looms are hot! These palm-sized weaving looms go anywhere and make just about anything you can imagine, from fashionable wrist cuffs to full-sized blankets. Just drop a pin loom in your project bag with a ball of yarn and you are on your way to fast, fun weaving.
Margaret Stump, author of the original Pin Loom Weaving, has outdone herself with the 25 designs in this new book. There are elegant wraps, a fun fox bag, pillows, pins, stylish scarves, and more - all in a modern style that says "hand crafted with pride."
With beginning weavers in mind, Margaret first walks you through how to weave on a 2" and 4" loom. Once you know how to make a basic square and connect your pieces, you are well on your way to making any of the projects in this book.
The book divides projects into those that use a 2", 4", adjustable fine-gauge, and even a pot holder loom, and those that combine pieces from different looms, so it is easy to find a project and get started. Pin looms are readily available in a variety of sizes and materials.
About the Author
Margaret Stump is the author of the successful Pin Loom Weaving. She has been creating wonderful fabrics and projects with pin looms for more than forty years. Her work is creative, original, fun, and appealing to young and old alike. A longtime advocate for this vintage art, she is delighted to see so many artists and craftspeople rediscovering the joys of pin loom weaving. She lives in Mankato, Minnesota.
As soon as you open the book, you will get a sense of Meg's pleasant personality and attention to detail. She has thought of everything that the beginning pin loom weaver wants to know, including making your own small loom. There are instructions for weaving on several kinds of small looms, and bias weaving. Meg's projects are charming and creative, and well suited for the beginner. There are also more challenging ideas like a textured weave, and quilt-style piecing. There are small jewelry ideas, which I like. If there was any lack in the book, it would only be the section about joining, which was brief. But then, I am passionate about joining. Meg loves to weave and to share weaving ideas, and her book will be a good addition to your pin loom weaving library. -- Marcella Edmund
