CraftSanity Weaving Looms

The CraftSanity Loom collection grew out of my love of the small and portable weaving projects I did as a child. I spent many hours weaving looper potholders on a metal loom and never outgrew the joy I get from weaving squares on small looms.

During the summer of 2009 I decided to improve upon the metal potholder loom design. I recruited Dan Boy, a local woodworker to help me design a collection of beautiful wooden looms ranging in size from small ornament makers, to looms big enough to weave coasters, potholders, placemats, bags and rugs.

Buy A Loom: I sell looms at local art shows and in my Etsy shop. I also do in-person sales for West Michigan residents and those who live on the Detroit-area near my hometown. If you want to buy a loom from me directly feel free to contact me. I always have more looms around than I have listed in my shop.

Learn To Weave: I also offer affordable weaving classes to individuals and small groups. Contact me for workshop pricing information.

The CraftSanity Loom Collection: Here’s a look at the whole loom fleet.

Mini Potholder

Weaving on the 6-peg CraftSanity Mini Potholder Loom allows you to make sweet mini-potholders that can be used as Christmas ornaments, wedding shower favors, package toppers and super cute kitchen decorations. Price: $18

Coaster Loom

This 9-peg coaster loom is a slightly smaller version of the 13-peg CraftSanity Potholder Loom and can be used to weave with loopers, fabric or bulky yarn. Use this beautiful loom with grooved pegs to make finished pieces measuring approximately 4-inches square depending on the material used. Price: $20

Potholder Loom

Use this beautiful Potholder Loom with grooved pegs to make finished pieces measuring 5- to 6-inches square depending on the material used. Price: $22

17-Peg Loom

Like weaving potholders, but looking for a loom that will allow you to create bigger squares? You’re in luck. This 17-peg Potholder Loom is designed to make potholders 2- to 3 inches bigger than the traditional potholder loom and can be used to weave with T-shirt loopers, yarn and fabric. Price: $27

26-Peg Loom

This 26-Peg CraftSanity Loom is great for making bags, chair cushions, patchwork rugs and square table mats. The loom measures 14.5″ on each side and makes a finished piece measuring about 12″ square. These woven squares can be used as table decorations, hot pads or stitched together to make bags, rugs, table runners, patchwork bed coverings, stuffed toys and more. Price: $35

Placemat Loom

The Placemat Loom is great for making placemats measuring about 14″x19″. The loom can also be used to make woven handbags, pillows and rugs by stitching several rectangles together. Price: $60

Rug Loom

This 30-inch by 38-inch Rug Loom was designed to weave rugs using continuous fabric strips. The loom can also be used to make large woven handbags, beach mats and large area rugs or bed coverings when multiple pieces are stitched together. Weaving on the CraftSanity Rug Loom is a great way to turn up-cycled bed sheets, flannel and T-shirts, multiple strands of yarn and even strips cut from plastic bags into rugs to protect and adorn the flooring in your home. Price: $150

What’s Next? I have even more exciting new designs in development, so check back here for the scoop on the newest CraftSanity products.

Thanks so much for stopping by! Happy weaving!

Thank you so much for this wonderfully rich resource and keep up the good work x

Jennifer: Oh, boy! I was so excited to see someone making a coaster using your loom today at a craft show at Lakota High School in West Chester, Ohio. I WANT one (and probably more)of your looms! Is this anything like the Weave-It loom of my childhood? I still have mine and it is so small! I have dozens and dozens of squares I want to make into an afgan. (I’ve made 3 baby blankets using the squares). BUT I want BIG looms. Let me know how much and how to buy, please. Thank you so much! Please send the information to me at ucxe0@zoomtown.com. Thanks.

I was interested in possibly purchasing one of your looms but preferred to use a telephone number to order or is the website a secure website?

Comment from jennifer

Hi Nancy. I sell the looms through Etsy.com at CraftSanity.etsy.com and credit card transactions are handled by PayPal. These sites are more secure than giving your credit card number out over the phone. As a buyer, you are protected because the seller never sees your credit card number and there is a third party keeping record of the transaction. You do not need to have a PayPal account to pay credit card. Please email me if you still have questions. Thanks!

I need them immediately so I can take them to her for her birthday. I live in Bloomfield Hills so I do not know if any stores near here carry your wonderful product. Please Help. Thanks Colleen

I think that everything said made a ton of sense. However, think about this,
what if you wrote a catchier post title?

I ain’t saying your content is not good., however suppose you added something that grabbed a person’s attention?

Went to etsy to purchase a few looms, but did not see the sizes I’m interested in – 17-peg, 26-peg, placemat-size. Do you still make those size looms?

be utilizing? I’m experiencing some minor security problems with
my latest blog and I would like to find something more risk-free.
Do you have any suggestions?

You just print out the coupon and take it to the venue; you can also get a free copy of SEE magazine from the site if you prefer to search and clip coupons the ‘old-fashioned’ way.
Most of the traditional gifts have what is considered to be modern counterparts, even though if you are married to a very old fashioned person, sticking with the classic
gifts might be the more sensible choice. com So Many Special Offer Codes among all

I don’t know if it’s just me or if perhaps everybody else
encountering problems with your site. It appears as if
some of the written text within your posts
are running off the screen. Can someone else please comment and let me know if this is
happening to them too? This could be a issue with my web
browser because I’ve had this happen before. Many thanks

Would like to order several looms, don’t use PayPal although I have a credit card. I would like the three-loom set, and is a 25-peg loom available. I live in San Antonio, Texas. I’m old school in that I prefer to conduct business over the phone. My tele is 210-219-6448. I’ve been looking at your looms since last year and have finally decided which ones I want. I look forward to doing business with you. Monica
