Inkle Weaving

I am a passionate and prolific inkle weaver. I began weaving on inkle looms over 3 decades ago and I'm still having fun experimenting with new materials, patterns and products. My blog at tells the stories of my inspirations and what I do with them. On this board I hope to connect with other inkle weavers and share more inspirations, ideas and resources.

Beginning Inkleweaving

Usually, I do not put patterns on paper before I set up my loom. I warp and design as I go. The golden sunshine and bright blue skies of the day were reflected in the colors of this guitar strap. I wove it while enjoying myself immensely at the Redwood Mountain Faire in Felton, CA, June of 2014. I called it "Vibe of the Day". ~Annie MacHale

    Thanks for sharing! I take this loom everywhere. :)

    @JacQueline Keller, I think it's cool that you managed to attach a strap to it AND I love the bag for holding accessories. I've often thought I need to find a way to affix my shuttle to the loom as I always drop it when transporting my looms.
