Nostalgic Toys ~ Weaving Looms

Weaving loom toys date from an era when children often amused themselves by making things and doing crafts. Children felt proud when they created beautiful potholders, scarfs,and other practical items that they could use at home or give as gifts.  
Weaving loom toys gave hours of constructive amusement and fun to girls and boys alike. The kits didn't take up a lot of space, they weren't messy and they were perfect for a long car ride or sick days spent in bed.  A weaving loom was a toy that could foster personal expression and build self-esteem.  Vintage inspired weaving looms are available for purchase online at Amazon.com and HobbyLobby.com.
If you'd like to see results of REAL weaving,  Etsy NY Team member, Jean Poli of Fiber Dance Weaving Studio spends countless hours creating exquisite blankets and throws that are woven on a traditional hand loom using only the best natural fiber yarns.
