Double Heddle Weaving Mounts for the DHL

If you are interested in double heddle weaving on the Dynamic Heddle Loom, we offer some really useful little mounts to support the heddle during the warping of the loom. They have little metal discs so the magnets in the heddle will stick to them and nylon bumpers to set the angle to make warping as simple as possible.

CHANGELOG – 12 September 2014

I spend quite a bit of time working on the Majacraft web site. Whether it is adding new features, writing pages, updating content, linking to others content or having a conversation like we have in the blog, there is a lot going on behind the scenes.

So I got to thinking. In the past, I make changes and then hope that people magically find them and appreciate the improvements along the way. I recently realised that unless somebody is carefully paying attention (like me), then the useful changes or new products are likely to be overlooked.

I need to write a CHANGELOG that documents and improvements to you can see what new stuff there is to play with. So here it is!

CHANGELOG

FIBRE - Added fibre prices
http://majacraft.co.nz/fibre/fibre.php

Until next time

Another circular loom tutorial!

One of our new developments with the circular looms is in the packaging. They are now packed on a sheet of cardboard and sealed with plastic. I have also written a basic introductory tutorial to get weavers started which is to be included with all the circular looms that go out now. It can now be downloaded for free from the web site if you are interested.

My hope is that it is simple enough to help younger weavers to get started so let me know if you think improvements could be made.
