Video summary: Method for tying a loom basket to your floor loom.

Hi! Thanks for visiting. I hope you find something you like in the shop. I weave on 6 looms and spin my own yarn for many projects. I like to make rugs, towels, scarves, jackets and other wearables. You will see some yarn and fiber in the shop from time to time. Weaving recently expanded into basket weaving because baskets are AWESOME and that is weaving too! I make special orders and have even made a special rug to use in a wedding. I have had some of my work featured online and in weaving publications and was even featured in an article in Clive Living magazine. Here is the link... I am on page 7 http://www.dmcityview.com/CliveNovember2019/index.html
