I was just given a table top loom, but I know very little about weaving. The only weaving that I have done has been on small hand looms and passing the shuttle through a couple of times on someone's large floor loom. Any help about stringing the warp, setting the tension, or getting started in general would be appreciated.

Free loom? Cool!

Gotta picture?

It would be good to know if it's rigid heddle, or wire or string heddle, multiple harness.

Depending on the loom we'll be able to guess where you would find useful instructions for warping it up.

Here is a structo loom with wire heddles

Here is a rigid heddle loom

Does one of these look like your loom?

Have a good day!

I love the instructions in Chandler's "Learning to weave"  lots of photos.  you should be able to find it in your local library.


Also do a search for a weaver's guild in your area - they are a great resource.
