Pure tapestry or large scale bead weaving bliss! The Joni Loom is the loom for those of you who like to think big but don’t want your loom to take over your room. Joni weighs 14 pounds as is 32 inches wide. You can weave a piece on her 29 inches wide and 44 inches tall. That’s a lot of space for creating your dreams. Pair her up with the stand and treadle and you’ve got yourself a fabulous floor loom at a fraction of cost and taking up a fraction of the space. She’s great with or without these additions. She’s stronger than some of our other, smaller, looms, sporting a double top and bottom beam to make sure she can accommodate the kind of tension tapestry weavers demand.
The Joni Loom sends you into a whole new territory. She's the loom you buy when are moving up in size and are dying to create a tapestry or a bead weaving of a size normally only possible of large floor looms. I found that my large floor looms which took over my entire studio (until I got rid of them so I could crowd my studio with a whole fleet or Mirrix Looms) could never accommodate a tapestry even close to their width because the tension would get uneven or loose. Not so with the Joni Loom. Warp her up from edge to edge and create a piece as large as 29 inches wide and 40 inches tall. That is a pretty darn big weaving. And yes, bead weavers use this loom too. Quite a few bead weavers create large bead weavings on the Joni Loom.
Who Should Choose This Loom?
The 32" Joni Loom is the perfect loom for the serious tapestry weaver who doesn't quite need the width of the 38" Loom Zeus Loom. Double top and bottom beams make this loom incredibly strong for the perfect tension every weaver needs. The weaving width is 29 inches and the weaving height is 44 inches.
Remember, you can always weave smaller pieces on our larger looms. You can also weave large bead pieces on the larger looms although they are more often used for tapestry.
