The 100 Pin Loom Squares weaving book

Is there any pin loom fan out there who has not yet checked out the new pin loom book-- 100 Pin Loom Squares: 100 Exciting Color Combinations to Try, Plus 15 Stylish Projects by Florencia Campos Correa?

I am excited about the book because it offers directions for tabby and a variety of patterned weaves. It has suggestions for using the pin loom as a regular warp/weft loom, which is necessary for certain kinds of patterns, like houndstooth or diagonal weaving.  I can see this being a great resource for building ideas on patterns for projects.

I am hoping that Pin Loom Weaving and 100 Pin Loom Squares are just the beginning trickle to a flood of great new pin loom weaving books!

  1. February 24, or hopefully earlier, can't come soon enough. I per-ordered it as well.!

  2. I plan on pre-ordering as well, I've been looking at this previews for this one for the last year. It's so hard to wait. In the meantime I've printed off a copy of Pin Loom pathways and bought the video for pin looming off interweave. I also got 3 of the weavette looms from bountiful. The rectangular ones. Also making up a sampler notebook of square patterns. I work better from samples than written directions.

  3. This is on my wish list. Color patterns always fascinate me.

  4. January 2020. I have borrowed this book from the local library, and find it really inspiring for learning and making different patterns with the Zoom Loom. However I am really disappointed to find that it's out of print and apparently unlikely to be reprinted Does anyone have any information about this book and/or the likelihood of a reprint? I can't be the only person who desperately wants a copy!

    1. Hi Suzen, Yes it is out of print and there are no reprinting plans so far unfortunatelly ( I am the author).. Try to find a used copy, there are a few here and there (Ebay, Etsy, etc.) Good luck!!

  5. Florencia, often (but of course, depending on the contract between publisher and author), if the publisher allows a book to go out of print, the rights revert to the author. My husband works in publishing, contracting books with authors, and this is according to him. Could you get the rights back and do print-on-demand publishing for it?
