Social Fabric: Weaving Makes a Statement

Watch “Social Fabric,” a short film about our friend Travis Meinolf, an artist who uses weaving in public to advocate weaving and the personal production of blankets and cloth goods as an empowering act. Click here to see it on YouTube.

  • I recently posted pictures of my craft room on my blog. I have my cotton ease crocheted flowers on a bulletin board…they function as art until I have the chance to work on them some more (they’re going to become a scarf). Thought you’d like to see! 🙂

  • I really enjoyed the video by Travis Meinolf. I am curious about the ‘loom’. Where can I purchase this device, and does it come in different sizes? I loved ‘loomong’ as a child, and like sharing new crafting ideas with my fosterkids. This would be a great addition to our choices, as well as a new medium for scarves for the homeless. (Maybe even blanket rolls!) Can anyone tell me where to pick up inexpensive looms?

    Zontee says: Hi Valerie, looms come in many sizes, from small ones for children, to huge ones for tapestries that take up half a room. We carry the great-for-beginner Cricket Loom. Click here for a blog post with more info on the Cricket Loom or click here for a video over at Craftzine.com in which Travis shows you how to make a loom out of an index card and to get started weaving.
