Jumbo Potholder Loom

Potholder Loom 10"
I bought a 10″ potholder loom kit and some additional loopers. The loops are cotton and appear to be remnants from socks. The loom is simple but sturdy. It’s all from Homestead Weaver, and I love it.

I’ll have a giant stack of potholders when all is said and done, or perhaps I’ll stitch them together and make a rug.

Bandweaving Videos

No Comments

There are a slew of wonderful how-to bandweaving videos out there, primarily by weaver Susan Foulkes, who focuses on pick-up style Sami bands. She often uses a special heddle that has extra slots (a Sunna or Sigga heddle) or extra holes (a Beaivi heddle) for pattern threads; however  you may also use any rigid heddle or even an inkle loom to create the same type of band. There are a number of great videos on her Youtube channel:
