  6. I love your book but was disappointed to see the patterns for different squares are all for 4x4 looms is it possible to convert them for 6x6 looms? Thanks.

  7. That's a great question. It would be absolutely possible to convert the patterns to a 6x6" loom. With some of the patterns that repeat across the whole square, all that is needed is to keep with the same pattern to the end of the line and to extend it to the end of the square. With other patterns it would be necessary to sit down and figure out how to add patterning to the beginning and ends of the line in order to turn the 4" pattern into a 6" pattern.

    There is also a very complete book of pin loom patterns by Licia Conforti called Patterns for the Weavette and Weave-it Looms. Ms. Conforti has drafted the pin loom patterns for 2", 4" and 6" looms. I think there is also patterns for 4x6" looms.

  8. I've enjoyed looking through your book, but unfortunately have yet to make any projects since I need to make some looms.

    On that note, I was wondering if you would consider putting the recommended wood and pin materials for the book's loom instructions somewhere on your website so that people who may have forgotten to bring the book along could look it up at the store, now that smartphones are so ubiquitous.

  9. Hello, Thank you for writing the pin loom book. Was trying to repair mine . Coundnt find the music wire around here, but noticed a small tapestry needle worked fine to replace a missing pin.
    Tried to draw out on graph paper the instructions for weaving the heart and come up with some "warps" being up for 6+ wefts. Wonder what am doing wrong, may just try weaving it when done with current project. Thank you Lynn

    1. Lynn, I'm glad to hear that you were able to repair your loom. A tapestry needle is a great idea, and it already has a rounded off end. You're right, the pattern warp shouldn't go more than 3 weft lengths. Give it a try, feel free to write if you continue to have problems. (My email is at the bottom right hand side of the front page.) Meg

  10. I would love to use my 4" loom & create Christmas stockings for my grandchildren. Has anyone done this & would you share a pattern. I want REALLY LARGE stockings! I just need help with the "foot" of the stocking.

    1. Lisa, I love your idea and have made some sketches. I think that the easiest way to get a turned heel is by joining the squares on the digonal. If you write me at my email address (its at the bottom right of the Home page, I'll send you a sketch. I'm thinking that we may have to do some sort of collaborative blog item on Christmas stockings. :-)
