Jacquard Open Source Loom

So I wrote this book, Inventive Weaving, that’s all about pushing the boundaries of what you can do with a rigid-heddle loom. And yet… I never considered using one as inspiration for building a jacquard loom!

Fortunately, Kurt did. Whether or not you’re interested in ever making your own mini-jacquard loom, watch the following video. It’s 7+ minutes of funny, maker goodness.

Kurt’s not only shared his adventure with us, he’s open sourced the code. For more information, read his blog post on the topic: Making a DIY Computer Controlled Loom.

So cool I had to share it right away.

Please share your thoughts: I enjoy your comments and feedback!
