The Countdown to Maker Faire Bay Area is On!


How-To: Book Loom

Craft & Design

Jennifer Ackerman-Haywood of CraftSanity shows how you can turn an old book into a weaving loom by pounding nails in to the cover. She even shares a project from a woman named Margaret Jager who created a beautiful shawl from squares woven on her own book loom. Margaret’s response to Jennifer’s question of why Margaret would use a knitting book to create her loom is priceless. Check out Jennifer’s post to see Margaret’s answer and the tutorial for making your own book loom.

    Poor book :(
    Seems like a couple of layers on thick cardboard or a piece of thin wood would work as well.
    I hate “crafts” that destroy books.
