I recently partnered with The Crafter’s Box to produce a rigid heddle weaving kit, which can be purchased online.

This kit includes everything you need in order to learn how to weave on a rigid heddle loom (no previous weaving experience required), complete with a 90-minute instructional video — featuring muah! — and all the materials needed to weave a table runner or scarf. This means you’ll receive a large 24” loom made by Ashford Wheels & Looms, a built in second heddle option, a reed, 2 shuttles, warping pegs, clamps and ~the most beautiful fiber~. I had the pleasure of partnering with GIST Yarn & Fiber to provide you all with an Italian cotton/linen warp yarn & a Japanese silk noil weft yarn (pictured woven together below). These yarns interlocked create a soft drape yet resilient fiber combination and are made to last.

This kit is truly special. It’s premium because it’s thoughtfully crafted to give you the most perfect weaving experience — after hours of filming (6+!), editing and fine tuning, I hope this kit will allow you all to fall in love with the textile making process and the language of the loom. If you’ve woven on a frame loom and want to learn more about weaving on larger looms (and longer pieces of fabric), or if you’ve never woven before, this kit is accessible to everyone. You can read a more in-depth description of this kit and what it includes, and purchase it at The Crafter’s Box website.
