YANKEE INGENUITY

What do you do when you have 9 Pine Trees cut down?
You make a Navajo Weaving Loom!
This loom is meant to be a Weighted Loom. (which will be the next project) but will work like this for now. I had so much fun locating just the right branch then removing all of the bark. I used no screws or nails but pegged everything together and wrapped all the joints with raffia to make it a bit more decorative.
The bar you see to the front on the forks will be for my continuous heddle strings (which is next). This was so much fun!

  1. Totally fascinated by this!!!! Will you use stones (maybe hag-stones) for weights? I really admire what you’re doing here! It’s beautiful…and that Indian basket on the wall behind it adds to your photo!

    • Thanks Nancy! I was thinking of the traditional stones but may make weights
      with Clay to be able to have even weight for each.
      The basket was a gift from my son from his travels, it’s my favorite.
