Sampleit Guide

Learn to Weave on a Sampleit Loom is included in the box with your loom. But, it is also available here. It includes detailed instructions on assembly and finishing your loom. Here is a picture of the contents of what you will receive:

It would be best if you did not let the fact that the loom arrives unassembled keep you from buying. Over the years, I have assembled lots of looms and spinning wheels—these manufacturers all provide very detailed instructions. Just follow the instructions, and you will have your loom assembled in no time at all. If you get hung up on something, email me at cheryl@cherylmoreo.com or contact the loom company.
