Weave anywhere with table looms
There are so many ways to weave, and we love all of them. From the popular rigid heddle looms to inkle and tapestry looms, Thread Collective stocks a comprehensive range for your crafting pleasure, especially the portable multi-shaft table weaving looms!
One of our most requested portable looms are those made for weaving on a tabletop. Our passionate customers often have one within their homes or studios, used as a primary option, or in combination with other weaving equipment.
We are delighted to bring you a quality selection of models that are available to all textile artists across Australia, supported with expert knowledge and advice.
Enjoy convenient weaving with our 4 and 8 shaft table looms
If you don't have a lot of floor space in your house or want the flexibility to take your project with you, a table loom is a wonderful choice. These designs are generally smaller and more portable than floor-based varieties. The term refers to a multi-shaft design and is considered more complex than a rigid heddle. Most tabletop looms offer 4 or 8 shaft options, however higher numbers of shafts are available on some options as well. This makes for a great option for weavers on the hunt for a floor loom.
The shafts are generally controlled by hand leavers designed to be operated on a table or specifically designed floor stand. Some of the tabletop varieties offer treadle kits to provide more flexibility in your weaving style. They are also available in a range of widths, the narrower widths are designed with accessories such as travel bags for easy transport.
We stock options from Ashford and Louet, and order designs on request from Leclerc.
The ideal choice for a versatile, portable loom
These designs are made to be used in a wide variety of settings and surfaces. They can be easily carried, and even folded down in many cases; this is an ideal option for small spaces, weekend getaways, and workshops.
Our collection hosts a range of options that fit this category and cater to a wider variety of weaving styles. From Ashford’s well-loved options to those by Louet, affordable products like this are available to you across Australia.
With one of these weaving looms in your collection, you can easily enjoy versatility when weaving. In many cases, these can be set up on a floor stand, should you wish to change the position in which you’re working. We have a number of stands that work with these frames and provide extra flexibility when weaving. Each stand works for the standard 4 shaft models, as well as larger designs. Enjoy table loom weaving with different kinds of weaving yarn too.
We recommend opting for size-specific models, in this case, so be sure to check and find your fit. We’re always happy to help you with this and any other questions you may have - just reach out to our customer care team, and we’ll be there.
