Inkle Loom

Inkle Loom

This versatile loom is for weaving narrow items like hat bands, belts, purse handles and much more.

Please note the handle on the tension adjustment knob is an old door knob… this is a unique feature of all my inkle looms!

Thread Box

Thread Box

I began making this box as gifts years ago and it is still very popular. There is a compartment drawer at the bottom for supplies and sundries, there are pegs for spools of thread, there is 2 top slots for scissors and there is a cork on the handle for needles.
I can make this Thread Box in a variety of finishes.

The Knitting Jimmy

The Knitting Jimmy

Yes, this is an decorative and elaborate version of the old spool and nails…. notice the little “mouse hole” for the resulting knitted piece to emerge while the Jimmy sits firmly on the table!

Floating Sue

Floating Sue

These are called Floating Sue because a dear friend named Sue thought them UP!

These tools are used to weight down floating selvedges and they can hold a VERY large amount of warp, too. The warp can be wound around the top and ‘hooked’ onto the hook at the top to keep it from unraveling. If there is a large amount of warp, it can be wrapped around the bottom of the Sue, as well.

Hokett Would Work Warping Reel

Here's a Normal Sized Hokett Would Work Warping Reel

This reel has been “ebonized” as part of a custom order. Most of my reels are of maple, pine, or poplar or a mixture of them. Reels can be made to order of exotic woods by request, usually at a higher price. The old books advise that this size reel can handle up to 5 yards, but many weavers use them to measure 15 to 30 yards! Contact me for current price list.

An End Of Warp Shuttle in action!

An End Of Warp Shuttle in action!

This little shuttle is handy for any small projects and works well for low shed heights. But it was created for this purpose pictured here ~ To be able to weave that last little space at the end of your warp when you think you can’t weave another shot! Here my wife got another 5″ of fabric after she could not weave any more with her conventional shuttle!
