Warp Your Mirrix for Tapestry The “Easy Warp” Way!
Recently Mirrix added a new loom to our family of looms. The “Easy Warp” Sam Loom is the perfect loom for beginners interested in tapestry or other types of weft-faced weaving. It is a 12” Loom, but one that comes with just the basics: a frame and a 14 dent coil.
The main difference between the Sam Loom and our other looms is that it is meant to be warped in an easier way. You can also use this method on any other Mirrix Loom!
This way of warping has one main restriction: Your warp cannot be advanced for continuous warping (where you can move your piece to the back of your loom as you weave). This means the length of your piece is restrained by the height of your loom.
That said, with this warping method you can weave a piece on one side of the loom and then turn the loom around, move the legs to the other side, and weave another smaller piece on that side.
If you’d like to try out this new method of warping, you can download our instructional ebook here.
