Hand looms are kind to the earth. They require no scarce resources, rebuild communities, provide self-employment and keep alive a heritage that humanity must be proud of!

Thank you for stopping by.

A Little About Me

I'm a craft-a-holic and have been weaving since 2009. I discovered weaving while surfing Youtube and finding this video by Travis Meinolf https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tJlaxase0F0

I was intrigued! I also play in the Society for Creative Anachronism (SCA) and have always wanted to make the cloth for my medieval garb. "Perhaps the time has come. ", I thought.  I did further research, found videos on tablet weaving and how to make your own weaving cards. I tried it and loved it. Shortly afterwards I bought a rigid heddle and the rest is history.

At the time, there wasn't much on the internet, particularly in regards to weaving with a rigid heddle, so I started blogging about it in 2010 at http://rigidheddleweaving.com.  I expanded into multi-shaft floor loom weaving about 6 years later when a friend tipped me off to a loom at our local thrift store. I rushed right over there and got it. Discovering that it cost less than half of what my rigid heddle loom cost I sort of felt a little ripped off. LOL Anyway, that's when I started blogging and writing articles here at joyofweaving.com. Soon after, more and more weavers started blogging too. I started collecting more resources than ever before.

I hope you enjoy my page and the resources I have gathered over the years and continue to gather.  If you like my page and all the resources I have gathered, please consider supporting me by buying me lunch (see below),  purchasing my Horizontal Warping Mill Plans, or using my affiliate links.
