See the 450 Circular Loom

The 450 Circular Loom is a larger version of the current 275 Circular Loom. It is obviously larger but we have also added more notches to the diameter to give more opportunities and potential for different warps

I have added photos and a description of the 450mm variant of the circular loom to the weaving area of the web site and you can see it here 450mm Circular Loom.

Until next time

The Rube Goldberg Overdrive

We received a message today in the Majacraft inbox via Christine Oliver of Moondance Colour Company about her Rube Goldberg Overdrive.

Using some backroom genius, she has converted her Overdrive to use an Irish tensioning system. I have to confess that I just LOVE this stuff. Generating a hypothesis and then using the resources available to test and produce a result, just brilliant! While you can appreciate we may not be reproducing this directly ourselves as something that all Overdrive spinners can use, this is simply excellent. If you could see the way many Majacraft prototypes develop, it is exactly like this so much kudos Christine.

Can you see the way it works?

Until next time

P.S. Great to see the Overdrive running on an older generation Suzie!
