Loop of the Loom is home to New York City's first-ever certified SAORI
weaving studio, gallery and authorized SAORI loom dealer. As one
of the few SAORI Leader's Committee members in the United States, Loop
of the Loom has the pleasure of introducing this unique and easy-to-learn
form of, what we like to call, "happy weaving" to the Tri-State
Area since 2005.
Our studio in Manhattan's Upper East Side offers classes and workshops,
on-site and off-site, to individuals and groups interested in self-discovery,
healing and having fun through weaving.
With SAORI's growing popularity, Loop of the Loom has been invited to collaborate with local schools, hospitals, community events and museums.
Students at Loop of the Loom have created distinct and original tapestries,
clothing, scarves, bags and many useful items that can be appreciated by
all. Other classes at Loop of the Loom include sewing, spinning and
Begala eco-dyeing! The Loop of the Loom gallery showcases new works created
by those in the SAORI community.
All could share the happiness and excitement I felt when I first wove.
The way you weave is the way you are.
Find yourself, surprise yourself,
and you'll see how beautiful you are.
Everyone is an artist who can move someone else.
Let's sit down and talk it over - the loom and colorful yarns.
Come and join our loop - our circle of SAORI weavers!
