Loom Feature: The 12″ Little Guy Loom
History: The 12″ Little Guy Loom arrived on the scene about the time we realized that the Mirrix Loom could be used for both tapestry and bead weaving (and of course a bunch of other kinds of weaving). It is small enough to sit in your lap and can easily be transported. It is a favorite among tapestry weavers who like small format as well as bead weavers. It is available both with and without the shedding device.
Fun Fact: The Little Guy was for many years our smallest loom, predating the Mini Mirrix and the Lani Loom by many years.
Uses: Bead Weaving, Tapestry Weaving
Statistics: Weight: 5 lbs Width: 12″ Height: 11 1/2″ – 17 1/2″ Makes a piece: 9″ x 24″

What Customers Say (Reviews from the Mirrix Store):
This is a great loom for portability and it’s functional design. It is lightweight enough to carry from room to room yet sturdy and well constructed. I love the upright feature for allowing my neck and body posture to remain in alignment allowing me more comfortable looming. In addition it has many dent sizes which allows for a variety of tapestry, fiber and bead work. –Elizabeth
I absolutely adore my Little Guy loom!
Perfect in size, not too small but small enough to be able to take it along.
It is very easy to use, even for a complete beginner; with all the instructions provided by the website and the blog it is seriously easy to start creating gorgeous pieces of work right from the get go.
The loom itself is very practical and easy to work with, it is a breeze to warp and I love that it is versatile; being able to use it as a beading loom AND a tapestry loom makes it extra interesting.
I *heart* Mirrix! –Ghislaine
I have had my Little Guy for just over a week. I love it! I am weaving on it every day. I have great big floor looms and wanted to try small works and experimenting with tapestry. This little loom has been perfect for me! It’s so sturdy and well made. And the support info on the website and facebook group has been really wonderful. I love this little loom and I’m really loving tapestry! –Mandi
