It’s September! The weather is starting to cool and our looms are calling to us as Fall approaches. We thought that we would feature some tools of our “trade” that make life easier when you are at your loom. Check out our Weaving Accessories section of the shop to see the range of tools we carry. For instance – the Thread Count Magnifier is a tool that is handy and fun to have around when you are looking at cloth and wondering how it was woven. One of my favourite tools is the Harrisville Brass Heddle/Reed Hook – which is now also used as a pointer while I explain the School of Weaving samples 😉 As weavers, we also need to have handy an extra supply of the tools of our trade ready and waiting. Here are some items that are good to have extras of, waiting to be needed – Bobbins and Spools and Heddles – the kind that your loom needs – so you are prepared to weave different structures and widths of projects whenever you are ready to try something new. If you don’t have an electric bobbin winder – Leclerc’s Double Ended Electric Bobbin Winder is a very handy tool to have near your loom. We also carry Brass Scissors which are great for cutting finished fabrics and are the scissors used in the Maiwa studio in India.

We thought you would all enjoy this Louet video – filmed a few 😉 years ago, of Jane demonstrating the easiest and most efficient way to remove or add Texsolv heddles to your shafts. A blast from the past, but also useful information if you are weaving on a Louet loom.
|We offer FREE shipping on all Louet looms within Continental North America. We also offer the option to pay a $1000.00 CAD deposit on your loom with the balance due when the loom ships out to you. This gives you the flexibility to make smaller payments towards your balance, at your convenience.
