Really nice band!
Thanks! I'm happy to be weaving on my band loom, as it's been idle for awhile. I took a band weaving class at Vav Stuga this spring, and it definitely peaked my interest.
I looked at the beautiful bands you have in your projects. Lovely!
That is just so neat!! Love it, and what a fantastic choice of colours!
I love your band. I love band weaving too. I make bands before I even know what I'm going to do with them. How do you like your loom? I've been eyeing this model. Not sure If I should try to make one or not.
Hi, thanks - sorry I missed your message earlier. I love this model of band loom. I have an inkle loom that I seldom use. My Glimakra band loom came from eBay several years ago. It is back in production by Glimakra now. There are some plans floating around that I've seen - maybe on eBay? for this style of loom. If you are handy with wood, you could probably make one. I like sitting 'sideways' to the warp, and also like that there are beams for the warp and finished bands, so I can make longer bands than on an inkle.
