The other star of our space-limited crafting show is a Schacht folding floor loom. Schacht Spindle, http://www.schachtspindle.com/ , located in Boulder, Colorado, has been making quality looms for 40 years.  One of their most popular is the Baby Wolf folding loom. Folded up, it is 34” wide and 18” deep.  You can buy the wheels/stroller and roll it into a corner or closet when you aren’t using it.  You can even fold it up mid-project and put it away.

I found this one on craigslist for 1/5 of retail – what a steal! I took weaving classes at Shuttles, Spindles, and Skeins, http://www.shuttlesspindlesandskeins.com/ , a brilliant local weaving shop.  Judy Steinkoenig is one of the best teachers and weavers around, and she’s available 5-6 days a week at Shuttles for questions and advice. In fact, no one at that shop could be considered a “grumpy yarn lady” and they’re always willing to help. They’re even happy to help you if you purchased your yarn at a different shop – and very few places will do that!

“We sleep, but the loom of life never stops, and the pattern which was weaving when the sun went down is weaving when it comes up in the morning.” – Henry Ward Beecher
