If I’ve been a little MIA the last weeks, it’s because I’ve been madly inkling: warping, weaving, planning…20 looms in all! Not just for the heck of it, but for an inkle video that Interweave will release in September. It was a lot of work, but also fun. Here are Anita Osterhaug (Handwoven editor) and I cracking up on the set.
Schacht Spindle Company, Inc. was founded during the back-to-earth movement of the late 1960s and its accompanying craft resurgence. Their first loom was a simple tapestry loom, a version which they still make today. Over nearly 50 years, Schacht has developed a broad range of high-quality hand weaving and hand spinning tools, including their popular Cricket Loom and Ladybug Spinning wheel. Schacht’s mission is to create beautiful and well-designed products that enhance customers’ weaving and spinning experience through innovative problem solving, creative ideas, skilled woodworking and craftsmanship, and friendly, knowledgeable customer service. Schacht’s family-owned business is located in Boulder, Colorado.
