THE LOOM WIZARD

Having trouble setting up your loom?  In a muddle with warping?


It can be so frustrating when all you want to do is start weaving....so....why not call in the Loom Wizard?  I will travel to you to help you to sort out any problems you are experiencing with your loom.  With over 25 years of experience with all types of hand looms (excluding dobby looms) I have set up and fine tuned numerous looms.  I can also help with warping and tie-ups.  

I am prepared to travel within a radius of 50 miles of Midhurst, West Sussex.

Live further away?  I'm happy to help via email and telephone for a small fee.  Just send me details of the problem, with images if possible, and I'll do my best to help you get weaving!

"Having had over 2 weeks of frustration with my counterbalance loom, I contacted Hilary in  despair, she quickly came to the rescue, spotted the problems, retied the heddles & treadles  so that I am happily  weaving again- marvellous!"   Janice
 

"Hilary came to my rescue when I had borrowed a small Lillstina Floor Loom that was in need of some restoration.  With great anticipation of weaving again after 25 years I suddenly felt completely helpless and frustrated having no idea where to begin or who to ask for help.  Hilary arrived, repair kit in hand and tackled the problem with enthusiasm and know how. She reconstructed the parts that weren’t functioning leaving me all set up ready to start; I have been happily weaving rugs since.  The Loom is now in a very good state, which makes warping up much simpler. Thank you very much Hilary."  Daphne
