Jan, Could you please explain how you do this. I had several girls who wanted to weave all around their cardboard loom to make a purse. I could not figure out how to take the weaving off of the loom and turn it into a purse. Any clues would be greatly appreciated. Linda
Sorry to send to the list, couldn't just make your name register in reply.

    As long as we're discussing Col. Am. art, Thanks, Sharon, for your wonderful site - we're doing a weaving project based on your woven drawstring bags. A question, tho. Does anybody know what types of looms were used during those early American days? A student wondered out loud, and I didn't really know.

    Thanks for any and all help!
