  • Another category of handheld looms might be more accurately called reweaving or darning looms. Back in the day when people repaired their clothing and textiles, rather than pitch them in the landfill, there was a big demand for skilled reweavers, who were often associated with tailoring shops. (If you are able to find a reweaver today, be prepared to pay at least $50 for a small repair.) When a damaged area needed a patch and there wasn't enough spare cloth available from the hem or a facing, the reweaver could weave it from scratch, pulling threads from the seams and hems. Threads surrounding the patch would then be woven into the original cloth as invisibly as possible. Some of these looms are very elegant and clever and some are crude, as you can see here.

    Another category of handheld looms might be more accurately called reweaving or darning looms. Back in the day when people repaired their clothing and textiles, rather than pitch them in the landfill, there was a big demand for skilled reweavers, who were often associated with tailoring shops.

    The Nu-Weaving loom (4" x 6") was packaged with a 45 page "Extension Course in Nuweaving", a reweaving needle, a little cardboard triangle that helped to estimate yarn sett and a suggested price list. After completion of the course and submission of samples, the buyer was to received a Certificate of Competence, a 3-color Oil Painted Display Sign and Two Extra Sized Needles. For $35, plus COD shipping. And this was in 1952! It would be interesting to find out if anyone starting with this course went on to launch a reweaving business.

  • The Auto-Weave Loom from January & Wood Co. of Maysville, Kentucky is a sorry excuse for a handheld loom. While the rotating hook part works just like the much better conceived Lightning Weaver, the designer did not add an element to the loom sides to tension the weft. All squares made on this loom are likely to be wasp-waisted. That’s if you can get through the weaving at all without popping it off the bottom uprights, which are totally smooth and have no curve or hook to prevent warp threads from flying off. Grrr! It’s here only to serve as a warning. However…the manual has a couple of interesting ideas for joining squares together that I haven’t seen elsewhere.
