Modifying a Weaving Loom to Fit Your Needs — switching to Texsolv heddles

Texsolv heddles

Last week we talked about how to buy a weaving loom and all the considerations you might run through in your head as part of making that decision. Now part of that conversation is about making the loom fit your needs, even if on paper it’s the most fanciest most awesome loom out there, you can still tweak it for you and your own needs.

On today’s Taking Back Friday vlog episode, I want to show you what I did to my Schacht Baby Wolf Loom to fit my needs. A loom can be a big investment, and so you don’t want to feel like you’ve invested all this space and resources into something that doesn’t fit you perfectly.

I would also love to hear from you if you’ve ever done your own modifications to your loom to make them fit for you, or work better for you.

    Is there supposed to be a video with the Taking Back Fridays, June 26, on using Texsolv heddles in place of rigid heddles?

    Actually, I did find the video link, but it doesn’t show up very clearly on my monitor. Maybe consider making it more obvious? Thanks.
