Anyone Can Do It: Bead Weaving For Beginners (Live Demo)
The goal of this demonstration is to show how simple weaving beads on a Mirrix Loom can be. This project is perfect for beginners who are feeling intimidated by their loom or aren't sure how to get started.
Why a Mirrix: Variable Sett
Whether you're weaving beads or fiber, the spacing of your warps (sett) is very important. Many looms give you one spacing option that can be modified by warping every other or every two or three notches/dents/pegs. On a Mirrix, you have almost unlimited sett options because of our warp coil system.
Each loom (with a shedding device) comes with four warp coils: 8 dents per inch, 12 dents per inch, 14 dents per inch and 18 dents per inch. Each of these coils can be warped at their intended sett or every other or every two or three dents. That means the 18 dent coil, for example, can be used at 18 dents per inch or 9 dents per inch or 6 dents per inch. We also have additional coils available at 10, 16, 20 and 22 dents per inch.

Why a Mirrix: Social Market for a Mirrix Ambassador Program 2019
Today, we are excited to announce our latest Social Market for a Mirrix Ambassador Program. We are looking for two people (one bead weaver, one fiber weaver) to participate this year and to each receive a 16" Big Sister Loom worth $290 or that amount towards a larger Mirrix Loom.
Why a Mirrix: Warp Tension
Tension is bad. Except when you're weaving.
In fact, if I had to choose the number one quality I'd want in a loom it would be the ability to easily get good, even and adjustable tension.

How To Balance Your Warping Bar
We often instruct people to “balance the warping bar” when weaving a piece that is thin compared to the width of the loom they are using.
What does this mean? Why does the warping bar need to be balanced?
