Several weeks ago, we went to the very last garage sale of the season (brrrr).
While we were there, Jim pointed at a tripod and asked if it would work to support a loom.
I was delighted! YES!!!
I twiddled around with a protractor, a compass, and paper, and made a template to make a shelf for it.
Then I cut 3 notches in a board, and Voila! a perfect shelf to hold my looms.
I can raise or lower the tripod to any height, and tip and tilt it to any angle.
It’s really lightweight, but very sturdily built. What a find!
To say that I am thrilled with it is a huge understatement!
Another wonderful garage sale find was this lovely table top easel:
It works great for small looms, and also for holding books and patterns:
Music stands (only the really sturdy ones) are also great for holding books and patterns, and also for holding small looms, too.
Another really useful support for small looms is a laptop pillow desk….
I really like that I can smoosh it around to make it sit at the perfect angle for comfortably weaving in my lap.
The flat part of mine is leather, so it’s a touch slippery.
I put a small piece of suede on the surface, which keeps the loom from skittering around.
Also, it works in the car, to support the loom comfortably while I weave and Jim drives 🙂
It’s amazing how many weaving treasures you can find at garage sales.
That’s what keeps me going back to them…. 🙂
