Download Our Made in a Mirrix Gift Guide: Gifts Made on a Mirrix or For The Weaver in Your Life
This year, our gift guide looks a little different. We're featuring two different groups of people: Artists who use our looms and companies and individuals who make content or products that might be useful for people who weave on Mirrix Looms.
From Rebecca Mezoff's tapestry classes to the weavings of Janna and Katie at Everlea Yarn and Emily Hitz and the gorgeous leather and beadwork of Kim at Sleepy Holow and Ric at Ric's Leather and the beautiful and oh-so-useful Mirrix bags and organizers by CGN Brass Ring Designs, you're sure to find something for someone on your list this holiday season!
The New Weaver on The Block
I love hearing stories of why people began weaving. For some of us, it's in our blood. We grew up watching our mothers or father or grandparents weaving and before we knew it, we were hoarding yarn and daydreaming of studio space. For others, it was a happy accident: a picture on Instagram, a friend with a loom, inspiration at a craft show. Some came to weaving for a reason and others for no reason at all.
Recently, my friend Shannon became interested in weaving. As a new mother, she was looking for something to do that was simply for her. It turns out that weaving was just what she needed.
We've partnered with Shannon to give new weavers out there an example of what someone's first experience with a Mirrix Loom might be. She has been blogging about her experience and is happy to help any of you start on your own weaving journey.

"I am so happy with my 16″ loom. Anyone who has trouble with tension on other loom, this is the one for you. The first time I loomed, I made a bracelet. When I took it off the loom, it looked perfect. The Mirrix Loom is the most wonderful invention."
"The Mirrix tapestry loom combines the simple elegance of a portable frame with a modern invention. Its clever solutions for warping, set control, and shedding are logical and precise. A graceful synthesis of traditional weaving methodologies, the Mirrix tapestry loom is itself an example of fine craftsmanship."
"Who knew that after many decades of trying every kind of hand work I could find, I found the perfect way to combine my two greatest loves; fiber and beads. The flexibility built into the Mirrix looms, along with the durability you'd expect, allows me to go anywhere the creative spirit moves me."
