Dix Floor Looms


Posted on Sun, 08/14/2011 - 21:13

I bought a vintage 20" Dix loom a couple of years back. I am in interested in the history the firm who made it - anyone got any information?? This particular loom has led a full life - from the USA to Japan and then to the UK - I figure it is about 45yrs old, from the information I got from the seller. Its in good condition - a few bits have needed some attention, some bits can't be replaced with equivalent new parts now, but nothing major.

I love it - its easy to set up and is portable - I have taken it to a couple of exhibitions now, and it always gets a good response, especially from kids.

The above print-out was with my loom when I got it. I got a 2nd Dix, the larger size, but it still needs some work. Apparently they were designed by an Ohio man for his weaving wife. Very well made, I'm lucky to have one of the benches originally sold with the looms. This, plus the print out & the looms, is all the info I have just now. I hope you're still around - I guess I haven't been, considering the tardiness of my reply here!
