Peg Loom Weaving: All you need to know to get started
This was published in 2012 for our special Craft Show customers as we made different-sized Peg Looms and sold them at markets and shows all around the UK. There were leaflets and small booklets about the process of weaving on a Peg Loom, but nothing like this spiral-bound lie-flat book.
So here it is! Whether you are a textile artist, fabric collector, or nuts about woolly things, this is the ideal way to use up any remnants of materials or recycle them.
We published it ourselves, not sure how long it would be of interest, but it is still sold regularly online as there are few others that cover peg loom weaving in such detail.
Never seen a Peg Loom before?
Perhaps you have seen one but never quite worked out how to get it set up and working.
This guide takes you step by step from washing and preparing raw fleece, using fabric torn into strips, and basically using any fibre or yarn to weave around the pegs. Most customers are surprised at the range of items you can make, not just straight pieces for scarves or rugs.
It makes a perfect present for any age, from children to elderly to those who have a condition that restricts movement. For instance, we have used it with a group of patients who had suffered a stroke, with textiles students, and with very small children at Craft Shows who have made some wonderful pieces of weaving.

NOTE: A similar book in the series is now published:
Felt Making: all you need to know to get started
This is a companion book to the one on Peg Loom Weaving, in the same format as a spiral bound lie-flat book so easier to follow when trying out any new technique. It has full colour illustrations on every page and information on how the process of felt making works.
Lots of extra details about the different types of fleece you can felt, and the different ways in which they might react. It starts from the assumption that you may be completely new to felt making, then moves on to show a wide range of more detailed felted items to make including some full-size ladies' jackets - all unique of course.
No special equipment is needed and the only source of energy is your "elbow"!
A perfect option if you have access to a regular supply of sheep's fleece or can purchase the beautiful ready-dyed Merino fleece from online suppliers such as Wingham Wool Works.
