Pin looms are hot! These palm-sized weaving looms go anywhere and make just about anything you can imagine, from fashionable wrist cuffs to full-sized blankets. Just drop a pin loom in your project bag with a ball of yarn and you are on your way to fast, fun weaving.
Pin looms seem to be popping up everywhere these days. For weavers with limited room or a limited budget, or who want a more portable option for weaving, the pin loom is a wonderful choice. Of course, after weaving the first few squares, many weavers ask, "What do I do with all these bits?" If you're pin loom weaver extraordinaire Margaret Stump, the answer is, "Just about anything." In her latest book on pin-loom weaving, Stump shares her inspired designs for pieces woven on a variety of portable looms, including the standard 4" x 4" loom, a 2" x 2" pin loom, an adjustable fine-gauge knitting loom, and a potholder loom.

Almost a third of the book focuses on tutorials. In addition to instructions for weaving with each type of loom, the book shows how to make a 2" x 2" loom and how to join woven pieces. I especially enjoyed the tutorial for weaving with yarn on a potholder loom. Anyone who enjoys weaving on the ubiquitous 4" x 4" loom will love the tutorials on bias weaving and weaving triangles. The triangle tutorial is particularly clever and opens up a whole new world of design possibilities with this simple loom.
Margaret Stump is the author of the successful Pin Loom Weaving. She has been creating wonderful fabrics and projects with pin looms for more than forty years. Her work is creative, original, fun, and appealing to young and old alike. A longtime advocate for this vintage art, she is delighted to see so many artists and craftspeople rediscovering the joys of pin loom weaving. She lives in Mankato, Minnesota, and can be found online at www.pinloomweaving.com.
