Cricket Loom Challenge!

When our young fiber artists begin their weaving classes at Summer Camp, we are hoping they will have ten new cricket looms to use at Textile Center. Will you help us bring the joy of weaving to the next generation?
We are seeking individuals or groups to donate $500, which will give you the opportunity to name a loom! By donating this amount, you aren’t just providing a machine, but you are also contributing to materials and instructor time for a full weaving experience. This type of challenge worked so well two years ago with our broken down sewing machines that our students now proudly learn and create on shiny new Alice, Elaine, Harriet, Gini, Nancy, SEWPHY I and II, and Steve.
The Cricket Loom, by Schacht Spindle Company, is ideal for a new weaver, easy to set up and warp, and crafted to last. We would love to offer our fiber artists in-the-making the opportunity of working on a cricket loom! Please consider making this important learning tool a reality for countless youth for years to come.
If you are interested in contributing please contact Jenny Jones, Director of Communications and Annual Giving, at or 612-436-0464.
