    I would love to have a copy of the instructions!
    I just bought palmloom at an antique shop in Millersburg, Ohio at “Antiques in the Ally”!
    It had a sample someone had made, but no instructions . Thanks! Cathie Whitt

    I found a Palmloom in some of my mother n laws stuff years ago and couldn’t throw it away. Today I decided to search it and your site came up. I don’t have instructions either if you don’t mind sharing. I love trying new things. My grandma made oval rugs out of nylons (pantyhose wasn’t invented yet) and I hope to figure that out one day. 😊

      The Palmloom is quite fun! I can think of several ways to make rugs from nylons. DO you happen to have any pictures of the rugs? If you can send a picture I might know how she did it. I’ll gladly send you palm loom instructions, just shoot me an email Alicia @ MyWorkbasket.com (remove the spaces) 🙂

    Thank you for this post. I have had one of these forever but couldnt quite get the hang of it. You revived the tool for me and may try with various textiles.

      Good luck! Do you have the directions? If not email me and I’ll send you a copy. I’d love to see what you make, even if it’s a fail! 🙂

    Perfect timing! I ffound one of these today in the thrift shop I volunteer at, looks brand new an cost me a whole 99 cents. Iwill be emailing you to take you up on your generous offer of instructions. I am also signing up for your newsletters, it looks like you have some interesting content Thanks!

    • AliciaS says:

      That’s a good price! All my years of thrift shopping I don’t think I’ve ever seen one before. Do reach out to me for instructions, and send me photos of your first project! Thanks for reading and subscribing!

    Hello,
    I’ve had a palm loom for many years. In original box with instruction sheet but I simply don’t understand how you sew through the section to hold round together. Feeling not smart! Can you direct me to a tutorial video or some picture directions. Thank you for any help

      I have never been able to find a video, but just recently put it on my to-do list to make one! I’ll probably record it next weekend and get it up soon after that. 🙂
