Macrame on a Mirrix Loom [Updated]
Macrame has been on my radar recently as it is experiencing a resurgence similar to tapestry. Yesterday, I came across a video showing some macrame techniques. The piece shown was being made while it was hanging on a wall and the bar it was on kept tilting back and forth. I realized as I watched that if you wanted more stability, you could make a macrame piece on a Mirrix loom’s warping bar held between the wooden clips. I decided to give it a try and had some macrame cord sent to me same-day. I have no patience when there’s a new project to be made!

Floor Loom or Mirrix?
Warping is No Longer a Challenge
Warping a Mirrix can sometimes seem intimidating to new weavers. Because of that, we came up with an easier way to warp called the “Easy Warp” method. This technique can be used for any kind of weaving you can do on a Mirrix from tapestry to bead weaving.

What’s a Bottom Spring Kit? A Bottom Spring Kit is a kit that allows you to put a warp coil (spring) on the bottom of your Mirrix Loom, just like you have one on the top.

Win a Saffron Pocket Loom on Instagram #littleloombigtension (This contest has ended)
It was nearly a year ago when we first set out to design a new Mirrix Loom. Our goal was simple: a tiny and affordable loom with a tensioning device.
After countless prototypes and redesigns, we finally landed on a little loom we loved: The Saffron Pocket Loom. It's the perfect loom for throwing in your purse or taking up to bed or weaving while you wait for someone or something. I tote mine around the house in a little basket with yarn and needles and a measuring tape. It doesn't have all the bells and whistles that the rest of our looms have, but sometimes simplicity is exactly what you need. Simplicity and a tensioning device.
We're giving away a Saffron Pocket Loom on Instagram! Entering is easy: Follow our page and then like and comment on the post. You can find the rules and restrictions below.
