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 1960's 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.
