Thank you for visiting. I'm often busy out on the farm so there is sometimes a day or two before I get to the post office. My usual postal day is Friday.

Welcome to the wonderful world of band weaving.

This is a style of weaving called backstrap weaving, where your body forms part of the loom. No need for expensive equipment or fancy techniques, using your own body and a heddle you can make beautiful woven bands on the go, and wrap it up to transport it with you.

Once you have decided on your threads, you simply load them in to the heddle, tie one end of the threads to a peg, door handle, or sturdy chair, and the other end ties to your belt. When you want more tension you lean back, less you lean forward - and as you weave you wind the woven band on, and scoot forwards towards the end of your warp.

Heddle and Shuttle

The heddle and shuttle are made from birch ply, laser cut to my specifications. You can use it again with any yarn that will fit in the holes. 

The shuttle can also be used to beat down the warp in the shed to keep everything tidy.

Any questions at all, just ask – I am happy to help.
