Do you have a weaving repair kit? It’s a set of valuable items standing ready for any fiber catastrophe. Maybe they’re in a cute bag with a “Weaving 911” on the side of it? (Ah, that sounds so sweet and organized, doesn’t it? In my alternate universe, my weaving repair kit is definitely in a cute bag!) Reality is that I have no cute bag. But I do have important tools and loom-related equipment sprinkled around my studio to assist in an emergency.
Maybe you’re new to the idea of an official weaving repair kit. That’s wonderful! There’s really no time like the present to take inventory of what you have and start gradually adding to it so you’re ready.
Ready for the yarn to break, for the counts to be wrong, and for the screws on the loom to be tightened. You are ready! Here’s the most current episode to provide some inspiration. Enjoy!
