Threadwinder.info - Tape Looms

Tape looms are just one small subset of types of weaving looms. They include simple heddle types (often referred to as lap looms), inkle looms, and box looms. On 27-28 September 2014, I took Susan Weaver's (of Warp Seed Weaving Studio in Lancaster, PA) Pennsylvania Dutch Tape Weaving class at Mannings Handweaving School (http://www.the-mannings.com/) in East Berlin, PA; and used the 18th-century-reproduction box loom that my husband gave me for our anniversary (made by Paul Parish of By My Hands Enterprises -- gizzard48@verizon.net).

Below are pictures from my collection, of simple heddle looms (2 antiques on left and a modern one on right -- there are some simple heddle looms with much more elaborate decorations than mine),
of a modern 18th century-reproduction box loom, and a modern inkle loom.
