This year we wanted to tie the whole fiber industry together, combining yarn and fiber companies in one interactive installation. This idea led to the creating of the Grande Loom, a giant frame loom standing over 6 feet tall and 5 feet wide. We warped it with ¼ʺ cotton rope and started weaving with special ropes made with our Incredible Rope Machine—14 different yarn companies contributed yarn to make the ropes. If you’re going to TNNA, stop by booth #1042 and weave a few rows on the Grande Loom!
You’ll see these ropes in a very special project we’ll release at the end of this month.
Keep track of what’s happening with Schacht at TNNA by following us on Facebook and Instagram! We’ll be doing a couple of live events on both platforms.
A big thanks to the following yarn companies who made these projects come to life:
Anzula Luxury Fibers
Brown Sheep Co.
