Looking for a Gift for Crafty Kids?
Why are Mirrix Looms the perfect loom for children? The answer is: the same reason Mirrix Looms are the perfect loom for adults. Because they work. They work really, really well.
Would you paint water colors on newsprint?
You could try, but most likely your masterpiece won’t get the kind of attention it deserves because your paper will be dictating the outcome, a not very good outcome. Paint water colors on water color paper and you masterpiece will sing its own praises. You can and will go wrong with inappropriate or inferior materials and tools, but you will never go wrong with high quality materials and tools.
When choosing one loom over another, sometimes price is a factor. Considering how much money one ends up spending on good materials the cost of a loom, even a high-end loom like a Mirrix, is actually minor in comparison. You lay out money once for your dream loom and then you spend the rest of your life filling it up with beauty. It never breaks. It never goes out of style. It never disappoints.
For years we’ve even trying to come up with a loom for children. We wanted it to be the same basic Mirrix Loom but we wanted it to be easier to set up. Warping a loom is where some people can take a wrong turn and get discouraged. Now granted, once you grasp the fairly simple concept of warping a Mirrix loom, it becomes extremely easy. Not only is it easy, it’s easy to make your warp tight and even. Still, we thought a simpler method was in order. And then the light bulb landed on our collective heads and the answer snuck up on us like something that had been lurking in the Mirrix corners for a decade. The answer was the “Easy Warp” method.
From this method was born the “Easy Warp” Sam Loom (named after Mirrix’s office pup, above.) The great thing about this loom (and it’s not just for kids, by the way) is it can metamorphose into the same grown up Little Guy Loom we all know and love by just adding a few simple accessories.
The “Easy Warp” Sam Loom is available with packages for both bead weaving and tapestry weaving. This packages will allow you to get weaving right out of the box. You can return later to buy yarn or warp or beads or silk. We just wanted to make sure that you or the lucky person you bought this loom for have what you need to start playing right away.
For the child who loves to create, for the child who loves to make beautiful things, for the child who loves the best materials and tools, a Mirrix Loom makes the perfect gift.
