A very young weaver

On Saturday, I’ll have my booth at the Mercer Collective in Edmonton AB.

I am going to be demonstrating weaving in my booth, and I decided that the 6 foot configuration of my Dewberry Ridge Triangle loom will be perfect for this.

I had it set up to the 3 foot size, so changes were necessary.

Our 3 year old grandson was over at our house for his weekly playdate, so I asked him if he’d like to help me take the loom apart and put it back together again.

Oh, YES!!!

I showed him where the allen wrench goes, and that was it…. he ~got it~ instantly!

His mechanical abilities are exceptional…. I know, I know…. proud granny and all that…. but still… he is only 3!

And, thanks to Gary McFarland’s brilliant engineering (he and his wife, Donna, are Dewberry Ridge Looms) my grandson and I quickly and easily had the 6 foot size tri loom assembled.

Here’s the link for Dewberry Ridge Looms: LINK

I am also going to be taking my Structo loom with me- kids love to weave on it, and I often take it to shows so I can introduce children to the joy of weaving 🙂

Our little guy has been weaving since he was a baby, (I blogged about it when he was 6 months old…. see this post: LINK ) so he’s a pro with the Structo:

I love watching him weave…. his focus and knowing-ness are so neat!

When his mamma and uncle were children, I always kept a loom warped up, just for them.

I wish that I had had the Structo then…. they would have loved it!

Sharing the joy of weaving is so delicious!!!!! 😀

    Your Grandson is adorable. He’s a weaver already . Don’t you just love the three s. He’s your number one helper : )


  2. What an absolutely sweet and totally serious little weaver!


  3. That is so wonderful! I just love it!


  4. So cute. I also started my children and grandchildren weaving on my Structo loom at age 3. It’s the perfect age to start them to appreciate the creative arts.


  5. This is sooooo sweet! Omgoodness! I love teaching kids. I just gave a a round knitting loom, a crochet hook,a set of knitting needles and a bunch of yarn, to a 10 year old. She caught on extremely fast, and loom knitted a drawstring pouch to carry with her, for the fair. And even decorated it with a crocheted flower, I had made. That was one proud little girl. These pics are Wonderful!!! That little guy, sure knows what he’s doing.
