Hexagon Loom Weaving- Tapestry

Tapestry weaving on small looms is a delight.

I’ve made a small video tutorial to show how to weave tapestries on the hexagon loom.

This piece was woven on the 4 inch hexagon loom from Dewberry Ridge Looms LINK, but it can also be woven on 2 inch or 6 inch looms.

Tapestry weaving on hexagon looms will work well for people who make their own hexagon tiles for their games.

This one is part of a larger piece that I will be videoing when it’s done.

Happy weaving!  Happy hexagons!

Hexagon Loom Weaving- Mandala- Tapestry in a circle

I love weaving tapestries on small looms, and the hexagon loom is no exception.

Because of the nature of the hexagon loom, it’s perfect for weaving in a circle, working round and round.

I’ve been weaving tapestry (the warp strands are all covered, only the weft strands show) on the hexagon loom, in a circle.

I call this, ‘Mandala technique’, as you can weave beautiful mandalas this way.

Mandalas are meant to be meditative, and this technique is very contemplative, as well as being a lot of fun.

I’ve made a video tutorial, showing how to weave the mandala technique.

Gamers who make their own hexagon tiles will be able to use this technique to make one of a kind, absolutely gorgeous tiles for their games.

The hexagon in the video was woven on the 4 inch hexagon loom from Dewberry Ridge Looms LINK

Mandala technique works on all sizes of the hexagon looms.

The metallic threads are from Kreinik Threads LINK

Happy weaving!

Tapestry on the 3 Sisters looms

I made a video that shows how to weave square, triangle and diagonal motifs on the Thumbelina, Mollie Whuppie and Vasilisa looms.

But… it was 2 hours long!  Whoa!  That’s just too long.

So, I thought: I wonder if I can figure out how to ‘fast forward’ it?

And, I did!

But, I think that I got a little enthusiastic with the fast forward function- LOL!

I turned a 2 hour video into a 2 MINUTE video!

Prepare for take off… buckle your seat belt…. here we go!

Um…. next time, I might not speed things up ~quite~ so much!

Happy weaving!

Pivoting clamp for pipe style tapestry loom

The Archie Brennan copper pipe looms are easy-ish to build and wonderful to weave on.

Here’s a link to the instructions that we used to build mine: LINK

It struck me that warping the pipe loom would be so much easier if I could pivot and spin the loom.

I saw a video on Youtube that showed a woman rotating her loom to warp it and that got my gears clicking.

And, so, I designed a set of pivoting clamps for the pipe loom, and now warping the pipe loom is just BLISS!!!!!

Here’s the video tutorial for them in action:

By the way, the finished size of my clamps is:

I am pleased as can be with them!

Note: The clamps can easily be moved on or off looms that are already warped, so switching looms on and off a stand is easy peasy.

To see the stand that we built, please go to
