TriLoom Weaving

Learn how to weave using a triloom.  No shuttles to wind, heddles to thread or loom to warp.  Design and GO!  You will warp and weft at the same time.  Triangles can be made in any size, depending on your loom size and can be put together in any configuration you can imagine for a huge variety of garments, accessories, and home items.
