Welcome to Cape Cod Loom Girl's Homepage
Looms are like M & M's: you can't have just one. I started down the slippery slope with one rigid heddle loom in the spring of 2012. I had just had my apppendix removed. I have a hard time sitting still, so my husband bought me a used Schacht loom in the hopes that I would sit still and recuperate if I had a new toy to play with. I did sit still, but I also caught the weaving bug. Luckily I have a woodworker for a husband. The next thing I knew, we were designing and building a folding travel loom. This loom was followed by triangle looms,all sorts of tools for weaving, and a couple of floor looms that needed refurbishing. Our latest projects are an inkle loom and a PVC four shaft floor loom that is almost finished. We are working some bugs out of our designs, but we hope to have some of our products on the market soon.
Check out Annie's blog Annie is a student at Olin College of Engineering. She's also a pretty awesome young lady & I'm not just saying that because she's my daughter. But seriously, she has some pretty cool mad scientist stuff as well as her artwork.
A New Project
Since I'm just about done refinishing my second Harrisville loom and we've just about finished my PVC loom, I was running out of projects. So I just had to go on Craigslist! I found a free loom just north of Boston that was looking for a good home - a 60 inch wide LeClerc loom. It's in several pieces, which is a good thing or else we wouldn't have gotten it in the SUV. This is a real project loom. It's missing the two upper & lower side pieces. John says we can make em. I've learned not to doubt him. I will post pictures on my project page soon.
