Hi Cher.  I couldn't find a UK retailer listed at
http://www.buxtonbrook.com but you can email either of the below
(both?) for some help:

snipped-for-privacy@buxtonbrook.com
snipped-for-privacy@buxtonbrook.com

You're handy so you might be able to make one: wooden picture frame,
finishing nails.  You can work diagonally with a continuous strand,
warp then needle-weave.

This practice has cut my spam by more than 95%.  
Of course, I did have to abandon a perfectly good email account...

Re: WEAVETTES??


thnx Wooly
It isn't for me but for one of the lady's at our guild,  she seems to think
they ought to be pretty firm but like you I think you could make one the
same as you suggest, or even the same way as the knitting loom instructions
give, that idea anyhow

cheers....Cher

They're easy as pie to make.  If you start with a commercial photo
frame be sure to get some flat L-brackets to reinforce the corners
with, or the fram is likely to fold in half diagonally during weaving
:)

I am pretty sure that Hazel, who lives out California way, sells these
handy little looms.  .I exchanged squares with Hazel and one of these was
a very pretty one done on a little square loom.

Hazel where are you..??
