How to Weave on a Triangle Loom

  • Teacher: Jenny Ferguson


Weaving on a triangle loom or triloom is fun, creative, easy and quick. You can start weaving as soon as you sit down with the loom, there is no elaborate planning and measuring process. Triloom weaving is also a very efficient way to use yarn, so you can use the more expensive designer, or hand-spun yarns.

I live on my own alpaca farm in Bluffdale, Utah with my 2 teenage children and very supportive husband. We have 9 alpacas, 19 chickens, 2 rabbits, 2 cats, and 3 beta fish, it feels like a zoo! I am happiest with hay in my hair and a little dirt on my toes. My best friend Jodi and I serve as co-presidents of our local spinning guild, Wasatch Woolpack Handspinners. My doorbell is always ringing with customers for my hemstitching business that I run out of my home and I also work part-time for Unified Police as a 911 Dispatcher, it's demanding but I love it!

I have a passion for fiber arts, but especially spinning, weaving, knitting and crochet. I love the feel of fiber in my hands and I’m fascinated by texture. I love novelty and art yarns! My favorite place to spin and weave is in my pasture among my animals. Alpaca’s are curious creatures and it isn’t uncommon to get a nose caught in the flyer of my spinning wheel. Working with my own alpaca fiber gives me a sense of serenity and accomplishment.

I have taught triangle loom weaving at Great Basin Fiber Arts Fair as well as at workshops for our spinning guild. On occasion, I teach spinning classes at my home. My most lively teaching experience was teaching a drop spindle class to 25 elementary school students at once.

I am creative, energetic, enthusiastic and a little sarcastic. My name is Jenny Lynne Ferguson and I approve this message.
