At 16 inches wide and weighing in at 6 pounds, the Big Sister is both bigger than her little brother and has been around longer. She was the first loom we designed! Bigger does not always mean a lot more expensive. A tapestry or bead weaving 13 inches wide and 30 inches high can be woven on this elegant, compact loom. Another great workshop or travel loom, the Big Sister stands firmly on a table. This is our most popular loom both for tapestry and bead weavers or those who do combined techniques.
The Big Sister is simply a more grown up version of the Little Guy. She’s got that wonderful shedding device. She’s great for both bead weaving and tapestry. The loom extenders work for her too. And she’s pretty darn portable. She ‘s too grown up to fit as nicely in your lap as the Little Guy. But she is one powerful piece of equipment. It’s no wonder she is hands down our most popular loom and only a little bit more expensive than her little brother. Make your choice between the two based just on size, because that is the only difference between them. Just like the Little Guy, we sell a bunch of accessories for the Big Sister.
Who Should Choose This Loom?
The 16" Big Sister Loom is our best-selling loom. It's a great size for both bead and tapestry weaving and is small enough to store almost anywhere. It fits perfectly on a table, or even on a lap and can easily be taken with you.
If you are interested in this loom but are worried that you want to weave something a little longer, consider purchasing our handy loom extenders.
