If anyone is interested, there is a new book out on building a 4-shaft PVC table loom.  You can read about it at www.PVCLoom.com.

Hey, I know that guy!  He'd be tickled to know his plans are still being recommended and used!

There's also this book: The Loom Book, by Tim Reed (haha!) (http://www.amazon.com/Loom-Book-Tim-Reed/dp/068414073X%3FSubscriptionId%3D1NNRF7QZ418V218YP1R2%26tag%3Dbkfndr59-20%26linkCode%3Dxm2%26camp%3D2025%26creative%3D165953%26creativeASIN%3D068414073X) (Amazon link because it has a photo, other online bookstores have it even cheaper)

It's complete instructions on how to build a 4H counterbalance loom from scratch.

Here are some links from my fiber web page

WEAVING

(4/13/08) Weaving for children. Try the notched cardboard loom ideas
from Montessoriworld.org. These projects have a simple set up but can be
fabulous! Great ideas for little hands. It even works for grownups!
http://www.montessoriworld.org/Handwork/weave/weaving3.html

Or the paperbasket weaving
http://www.montessoriworld.org/Handwork/weave/weaving2.html

Basic weaving info
http://www.montessoriworld.org/Handwork/weave/weaving1.html

(Apr 1 2008)After studying the Marla Mallett site
and the Taos Trading Post site, I was inspired to weave
a tiny rug. It was fun!

Have a good day!
