One question we get a lot here at Mirrix Looms is this: “Can a beginner use a Mirrix Loom”? The answer is a resounding, “yes!”
One of the great things about a Mirrix is that you can learn and grow with your loom. As a beginner, when you get your first loom, you may be starting with beginner projects like our Starter Bracelet or a Tapestry/Bead Cuff. Soon, though, you’ll be advancing to weave pieces like our Heart and Scribble Tapestries or our gorgeous Beaded Purse.
From there, the sky is the limit! A Mirrix Loom offers you a professional quality foundation to grow your craft/art. Plus, a Mirrix is an incredibly versatile loom. This means you can decide you want to get into beads when you started with tapestry or tapestry if you started with fiber or that you want to weave with wire or begin making mixed-media pieces.
Another question we get often is, “Which loom is best for a beginner?” There really isn’t an answer to that. Any of our looms will work for a beginner. The difference between most of our looms is simply size. If you’re a beginner who wants to eventually make very large pieces, you may want to invest in a larger loom. If you’re an expert who only makes small pieces, a smaller loom will be best. That said, most beginners decide to start on the small side since those looms are less of an investment financially. Our 8″ Lani Loom, 12″ Little Guy Loom and 16″ Big Sister Loom are the most popular looms for beginner bead and tapestry weavers.
