Call for Submissions: Little Looms Fall 2022—It’s All in the Details Primary Image

I often (very often) compare weaving and cooking because really the two are similar in many ways—not the least of which is that you can take something ordinary to the next level with just the smallest of details. A splash of lemon juice or a bit of smoked paprika here, a macramé fringe or bit of inlay there.

In honor of all those little extras that can make a handwoven cloth even more special, our Fall 2022 Easy Weaving with Little Looms issue is themed “It’s All in the Details,” and we’re putting out the call for projects that go beyond the basic. We’ll be looking for fancy hemstitching, inlay, pompoms, tassels, rya, elaborate fringe, and more. We want small details that make cloth so much more interesting.

As always, projects should be woven using a rigid-heddle, inkle, pin, or tapestry loom, or using weaving tablets/cards. Articles about techniques, design inspiration, or anything else related to weaving on a small loom are welcome as well.

Please note that we have changed our submission process and are also using a new submission form. We base our project selections for each issue on contributor photographs. We will review the proposals and ask for additional photographs if needed, to be sent in before the end of July. After the project-selection meeting, we will contact everyone whose project is accepted and ask that it be submitted along with the project paperwork.

You can find the palette for the issue here.
