Welcome to Little Looms!
The team here at Long Thread Media is excited to introduce you to the Little Looms website. We’ve always been about community, and there’s never been a better time to create a home for small-loom weavers.
Before looking ahead, we’ll start by looking back to 2016, when the first issue of Easy Weaving with Little Looms came out. Our premiere issue was the first of its kind dedicated to rigid-heddle and pin looms plus inkle, tablet, and even tapestry weaving.
Anne Merrow, our editor at the time, said it perfectly, "This magazine is designed for weavers at every level to find something new, whether it’s playing with color, trying out a new loom, or treating fabric in a new way."
Today we’ve continued to embrace the spirit of that first issue as we grow and expand the Little Looms brand. Now with our very own website, we’d like to take you on a virtual tour of new features, highlights, and helpful information, with even more to come!
