View Full Version : Cluny Loom

26-03-2010, 03:30 PM
I used to have a diagram to be able to make a cluny loom from plastic. Not the shrink wrap plastic, from anything plastic. It was perfect to make out of used up gift cards and such. Now I cannot seem to locate it and doing a wide search online has made my eyes twist..lol. Does anyone out there know how to do this? I would appreciate help.

I saw a link for a cluny loom this morning but the page was missing when I tried to follow the link. Sorry!! Would love to have the information if you come across it! :)

Dawn, please post the link! Maybe the Wayback Machine has it!

Try this link - I copied these instructions off just a couple of days ago - it uses a star plastic canvas form as a cluny loom - I havn't tried it yet since I havn't been to the craft store. Looks like it should work great

Hello, Imoshen.
Perhaps the loom you are thinking of was the idea of Lorraine Eisbrenner, published in the late 1990s (early 2000s) in an IOLI Bulletin. I think someone referred to it as 'Big foot'.
I use a similar adaptation in a rectangular form, of stout cardboard.

This sounds familiar... I think that might be what I'm looking for. Thank you all for responding so quickly and for your help.

Okay, Imoshen.
I guess that now the guilt will become overwhelming because cluny tatting is something yet to be learned. Since these feelings of guilt are your fault, when I do start, I will have to go to you for instruction! :happydancetwirl:
Be aware!!! :rockhard:

Once I figure out how to get the leaves the same thickness I'll be happy to pass along the knowledge..:biggrin:
