NEW Easel Weaver

Little Looms are still gaining in popularity, and the number of projects, publications, and Pinterest boards seem to multiply exponentially. While we have been a leader in the small loom market, we knew that there was room to for another loom. Meet the Easel Weaver, the new I-loom from Schacht Spindle Company! This versatile I-loom comes in 3 weaving widths, 6″, 8″, and 10″ and the warp can be wound for either 6 or 12 ends per inch. Whether you’re weaving a mini tapestry, a bracelet, or other small piece of fabric, the Easel Weaver is easy to use while warping and a pleasure to weave on.

The kickstand is adjustable and allows you to weave at a comfortable angle. It is also a perfect way to display your finished piece (without having to take it off the loom.)

This March we went to the NAEA conference where we debuted the Easel Weaver, and it was the belle of the ball. We taught art educators how to weave with yarn and paper, and they loved it! The ease of use, practicality, and versatility of the Easel Weaver made it appealing.

Tapestry weaving is not the only thing that can be woven on a frame or I-loom. We had a little factory weaving-fest to try out its range! Here are someprojects that we made on the Easel Weaver.
