We just read an article in the Grand Rapids Press by Jennifer Ackerman-Haywood (of Craft Sanity) about her enthusiasm for the Zoom Loom. It is exciting to see the enthusiasm growing for the Zoom Loom. Check out this article that also includes a bit of the history of how the Zoom Loom came to be.
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.
