And the day arrived

:::LEER EN ESPAÑOL

Yes, it has. In less than 24 hours, our first workshop of zoom loom mini weaving loom will start 🙂

What zoom loom is? A weaving loom rarely known in Chile, some call it colombian weaving loom. The old version used to be the weave-it loom and it was quite famous a fews decades ago. Zoom loom is a commercial product of the US company Schacht Spindle, based on the weave-it loom. The zoom loom is a redesign, a revival, plastic made, a modern and much more attractive weaving set.

Don`t confuse the zoom loom with a regular weaving loom, because the zoom loom has a different nails/pins distribution, therefore it is weaved differently too: 3 warp layers and then weaving (“A” weaving type). Or 2 warp layers and then weaving (“B” weaving type).

The zoom loom is 4×4″ (10×10 cm) size. There are no other sizes, but it is easy to build one on your own. In my book “100 pin loom squares” you can find the instructions to build it the size you want.

Dont get me worng, 4x4" size is ok, but a bigger loom allow to achieve bigger projects ad doing it faster. Who hasn`t feel extremely anxiousto see finished that handmade piece that have working on?

I have my own curtomized one and I didn`t built it myself, I bought it at Telart. I ordered a 12×12″ (30×30 cm) and I love it. Below you can see the comparision of both sizes and the result using each one.
