The Little Guy and Big Sister Looms by Mirrix Tapestry & Bead Looms Made in US
The Little Guy is the smallest of our looms designed to accommodate both tapestry and bead weaving. The Little Guy is so cute, so portable and fits perfectly on a lap when he isn’t standing on a table with his two fold out legs. Weighing in at a featherweight 5 pounds, this 12 inch wide loom is a workshop goer’s dream. Weave a fiber or bead tapestry up to 9 inches wide and 22 inches high.
The Little Guy loom is the smallest loom we make that accommodates both bead and tapestry weaving. It’s small, it’s sturdy, it’s portable and it includes the shedding device and a variety of warp coils. Weave a small format tapestry on it or a bracelet. Anything is possible with the only restriction being size. When deciding between this loom as the Big Sister, your only consideration should be: what is the largest piece I will want to weave on this loom? Keep in mind that you can weave two thinner pieces on this loom. What fun is that: watching two pieces progress at the same time without the frustration of wanting to get that old piece off the loom so you can start on your next idea.
At 16 inches wide and weighing in at 6 pounds, the Big Sister is both bigger than her little brother and has been around longer. A tapestry or bead weaving 13 inches wide and 36 inches high can be woven on this elegant, compact loom. Another great workshop or travel loom, the Big Sister stands firmly on a table. This is the most popular loom both for tapestry and bead weavers or those who do combined techniques.
The Big Sister is simply a more grown up version of the Little Guy. She’s got that wonderful shedding device. She’s great for both bead weaving and tapestry. The loom extenders work for her too. And she’s pretty darn portable. She‘s too grown up to fit as nicely in your lap as the Little Guy. But she is one powerful piece of equipment. Make your choice between the two based just on size, because that is the only difference between them.
Included in each: Four coils - 8, 12, 14, 18 dents, shedding device and handle, two large wooden clips, warping bar, flat wrench, allen wrench, coil bar, and written instructions.
