Cynthia Easiweave Loom

Filed under: Cynthia Easiweave Frame, Vintage Looms

In my mother’s attic, we found a couple of looms. One is Cynthia Easiweave Loom. It is in at least good if not excellent condition and I have the original instruction booklet & box. I don’t have the flat wooden needle but my brother thinks he can make one for me. I suppose the printing on the frame has decreased the value some. I saw a listing on eBay for $9.95 & it was in about the same condition but it had the wooden needle. Apparently, the frame can be expanded with additional units.

The wooden frame is a 6″ square & is stamped Cynthia Easiweave, Boston, Mass on the back. There is no copyright date & I can’t date it from a search of google.  I love how the booklet tells that a coat made from 96 41/4″ x 41/4″ squares woven would have cost $2.40.

thanks so much for posting about this, I’ve always been fascinated about weaving small things. I just re-discovered my own pot holder loop loom and had fun making a few! This little loom looks just like something I’d like to experiment with. Are they hard to find still? Maybe I’d order one from ebay if it was cheap enough. Love your blog and will check out more posts!

Thanks Mary. I did see one on eBay when I first posted. I don’t recall how to use it but will ask my niece to show me. She went to a summer camp for weaving last summer. Thanks for taking time to read and comment!
