    The mitts and the scarf are really beautiful !!! The woven set is also very nice and I’m eyeing the pillow on the cover of the book !!!

  2. clemence August 26, 2016 at 7:53 pm #

    I shared on facebook https://www.facebook.com/clemence.bes

  3. Margaret August 26, 2016 at 8:20 pm #

    Fun podcast as always. Thanks for the fun and for the chance to win something too. :D

  4. Clementine Leahy August 26, 2016 at 9:21 pm #

    Lovely podcast as usual. I have tried my hands at weaving and would love to make a scarf with purl soho’ yarn. The colours are always so inspiring.

  5. Pat Collingwood August 26, 2016 at 10:21 pm #

    I would make a wall hanging

  6. Annie August 27, 2016 at 5:05 am #

    I’d mix things up with a cushion cover in a bright yarn- a fantastic way to move away from the more conventional wall hangings and rugs.

  7. Heather o'connell August 27, 2016 at 5:55 am #

    Omigosh, I would probably makeep a little scarf! Recently got into rigid heddle weaving and I’m hooked! Lovely edition of this Pomcast ?

  8. miss agnes August 27, 2016 at 11:56 am #

    Fantastic giveaway! I would make a wall hanging, something to liven up my new space.

  9. Jules August 27, 2016 at 1:24 pm #

    Lovely podcast as always. I would make a wall hanging for my recently decorated bedroom.

  10. Libby August 27, 2016 at 1:56 pm #

    I’d start with a wall hanging but would love to work my way up to that beautiful rug!

  11. Caroline August 27, 2016 at 3:07 pm #

    I would make a wall hanging. I’ve been looking for a picture for my sitting room for ages, so why not just make something to fill the gap.

  12. Kerry August 27, 2016 at 7:37 pm #

    Lovely fun podcast! Thanks! I would like to weave a bright, bold, cosy cushion for sofa lounging!

  13. Chelsea Berkompas August 27, 2016 at 9:40 pm #

    You two make my day every time I listen to the PomCast!! This is a super fun giveaway – I would love to make some placemats…. or that super awesome rug!

  14. Luisa August 27, 2016 at 10:46 pm #

    I would love to learn to weave and make rugs for my daughter’s mouse house ?

  15. Mary M August 28, 2016 at 1:57 am #

    My daughter has been stealing the rug out of the bathroom to put by her bed “for her so very cold toes” (even though she claims it is still much too warm for her slippers.) I think I would try to weave something just for her.

  16. Maurice August 28, 2016 at 8:41 am #

    Another entertaining podcast, and great interview with Tom. If I won the book giveaway, first I’d make a loom and then have to decide between a rug and wall hanging

  17. Geraldine Woestenenk August 28, 2016 at 10:42 am #

    Nice give-away! My grandmom was an excellent weaver, she made lots of pretty things. I would like to make a nice scarf

  18. Kayla August 28, 2016 at 2:30 pm #

    I’d love to learn to weave! Either scarves or a wall hanging for my newly wed bedroom!

  19. Catherine Stewart August 28, 2016 at 4:57 pm #

    I have just found out that one of my closest friends is expecting her first baby in January 2017. Although we live across the Atlantic (she is in Scotland and I am in New Hampshire, USA) I want to ensure I can support her and be a part of the new baby’s life. Therefore I’d love to make a unique wall hanging that would hang in the baby’s bedroom. Figuring out the design might be tricky, but the book sounds like it would be tremendously helpful. Congratulations to Meghan, and her family. New babies!! Yay!!!

  20. Katie August 28, 2016 at 8:06 pm #

    Oh man, I’m not sure what I would make first! I’ve been fascinated by weaving ever since I learned about Native American weaving in elementary school in the US, but somehow I’ve never done anything except the pot holder we made in class.
    I’d love to make a wall hanging and a scarf, but I’ve also got a great deal of wool from local scruffy Austrian sheep (I live in Europe now) that would make very durable rugs.
    I’ve heard that handspun yarn is great for weaving, and I’ve got an ever-growing stash that I would looooove to use in various weaving projects. Maybe that yarn could become place mats or a table runner.
    Oooooh, the possibilities. :)
    Thanks so much for putting out such great material – it’s always a joy to listen to the pomcast!

  21. Wei-Lin August 28, 2016 at 9:45 pm #

    Those colours are amazing. I would make a wall hanging. Something beautiful to cheer up my London-renters’-chipboard-magnolia-walls.

  22. Kat August 28, 2016 at 10:12 pm #

    I would love to weave a small bag with a sewn lining to keep my knitting in. Thanks for producing such a fine publication and having fun giveaways.

  23. Charlotte August 29, 2016 at 2:16 pm #

    Another great podcast. I’ve also been tempted to get more into weaving – I’ve done a little using a homemade fame so far. I’m tempted to see if I can weave some panels for a mini skirt next.

  24. KImberly August 29, 2016 at 3:08 pm #

    I would love to weave a scarf!

  25. Claire August 29, 2016 at 5:30 pm #

    Holy moly Batman! What a giveaway! I’d have to make a table runner for sure

  26. Jessica August 29, 2016 at 6:42 pm #

    I’d love to weave a little wall hanging for my sun porch. The colors would be perfect in there! Thanks for the fun podcast; I love listening to it!

  27. Lorise Weber August 29, 2016 at 7:37 pm #

  28. Rebecca anderson August 29, 2016 at 11:09 pm #

  29. Niel August 30, 2016 at 6:07 am #

    I would love to make a mini mat for my office desk

  30. Mateja August 30, 2016 at 7:43 am #

    Awesome, such a lovely giveaway! I fell in love with the wall hanging in the middle picture – I’d totally weave that. And I might just make some pillow cases for some more cosy pillows on my couch :-) and maybe a cute purse wouldn’t be too bad either :-)

  31. Catherine O August 30, 2016 at 1:10 pm #

    Loved the interview this month!!! It was so interesting. Really made me want to learn more about Tom’s work and about mending!!

  32. Charlotte August 30, 2016 at 1:34 pm #

    Great podcast as always! Fingers crossed that with Sophie now at Pom Pom full time you will record more than one pomcast each month!

    I would love to make a scarf with the weaving tools and practice techniques so that maybe one day I can make a rug? Also woven wall hangings are lovely. Maybe I’ll make some of those as well.

  33. Allie August 30, 2016 at 1:39 pm #

    Thanks for sharing all the fun in your latest podcast. I’ve got my eye on the fringe-tastic pillow on the cover of Rachel Denbow’s book!

  34. Rachel August 31, 2016 at 2:25 am #

    I’d make a wall hanging first because my new apartment clearly needs some love on the walls. Weaving is high on my list of crafts I’d like to learn. This is a fabulous giveaway!

  35. Rachel August 31, 2016 at 2:25 am #

    I’ve also shared this on facebook.

  36. Lily August 31, 2016 at 12:39 pm #

    I would make a wall hanging. My grandparents met in a loom factory during WWII, having come to England from Poland and Ireland as immigrants. My Mum has always wanted to learn to weave, too, so maybe together we could pick up the thread of weaving that runs in our family.

  37. Kim August 31, 2016 at 6:16 pm #

    I would make a scarf.

  38. Valerie August 31, 2016 at 7:26 pm #

    I would make a hanging for the towel bar of my antique kitchen dresser.

  41. Rosemary August 31, 2016 at 8:30 pm #

    I would love to try my hand at a woven wall hanging. I’ve been researching Pintrest and it looks like a lot of fun. Those colors of yarn in the picture are gorgeous!

  42. Naomi August 31, 2016 at 9:05 pm #

    I would love to make a wall hanging. I’ve lots of extra yarn that could be used in weaving.

  43. Martha Richter August 31, 2016 at 11:03 pm #

    Those yarns look like great colors for s fall scarf, just before the cold weather sets in!

  44. Pip September 1, 2016 at 12:41 am #

    Ooh I do love the look of that pillow on the cover! Thanks for the giveaway, great episode as always!

  45. Goldie September 1, 2016 at 2:03 am #

    I would love to finish the Palindrome scarf that I started on my loom before having an ulcerated cornea. It’s still waiting on the loom for me.

  46. Lindsey Dickens September 1, 2016 at 9:13 am #

    I am new to weaving, have recently been made redundant so I’m looking for a new way to make a little cash – thinking I’ll start experimenting with items I could make and sell. Si would love to read this book. I have also shared your post on Facebook.

  47. Lindsey Dickens September 1, 2016 at 9:14 am #

  48. Michele September 1, 2016 at 1:33 pm #

    I’d love to try weaving-it would be a great way to use up my stash, both with little walk hangings and with scarves.

  49. Charlotte September 1, 2016 at 4:19 pm #

    I love the mittens from the new issue! So pretty :))
    I haven’t woven since I was a little girl – if I had this kit I’d probably make something small, like a wall hanging or perhaps a tablecloth or tabkerunner.

  50. Jessica September 1, 2016 at 5:43 pm #

    I’d love to weave a few small pieces and sew them together to make a clutch bag. ?

  51. Briana R September 1, 2016 at 5:49 pm #

    I would love to get creative with wall hangings! What a perfect way to use some beautiful handspun yarn!

  58. Natalie Selles September 1, 2016 at 6:12 pm #

    Oh I am totally in love with the idea of learning to weave these days. I am totally inspired and in awe of the wall hangings I see online, and I think that is where I would start first. But that’s just the beginning isn’t it!

  59. Morgan Hartlage September 1, 2016 at 6:13 pm #

    I would love to win the giveaway and make a blanket of tiny squares. My sister in law and I decided to try weaving last weekend for the first time (I’m usually a knitter) and we started trying to build our own loom too! Liked the post on Instagram as well! Beautiful colors!

  60. Sarah September 1, 2016 at 6:16 pm #

    I would make a set of fun pillows for our living room!

  61. Becca September 1, 2016 at 6:16 pm #

  66. Alexa T September 1, 2016 at 6:22 pm #

    I just started weaving a couple of months ago and fell in love with it! I would use the book to keep learning so I can make Christmas presents for friends and family and also weave as self-care after work! :)

  67. Katie September 1, 2016 at 6:23 pm #

  74. KT September 1, 2016 at 6:27 pm #

    How wonderfully sweet! I’ll be using this loom with my sweet son. He’s always so interested in my knitting, but at two doesn’t have the fine motor control yet to grasp it on his own. I think weaving will be much more satisfying, and we’ll both bask in fibers!

  75. vicky September 1, 2016 at 6:32 pm #

    even if it might sound a little esoteric now but i have to hold the material in my hands most of the time before we can have a talk about it’s future ? but rumor has it it wants to become a wonderful boho-style headband ??

  76. Allison T September 1, 2016 at 6:32 pm #

    I’d make something with wild texture and color- just tapestry weaving is all about!

  79. Heidi E. September 1, 2016 at 6:34 pm #

    My little lady would LOVE this! She’s hooked and it all started with a little cross stitching. She’d definitely have to make me a wall hanging. ;)

  80. Kristy Short September 1, 2016 at 6:34 pm #

    My goodness!! I love this letter set. Maybe I’ll weave some big coasters for a cup of coffee and a treat! ;-)

  81. Mary Beth September 1, 2016 at 6:36 pm #

  91. Becca Parson September 1, 2016 at 6:58 pm #

    Oh man I’ve been obsessing over this stuff for weeks now as I daydream about my baby-on-the-way’s nursery! I’d definitely be making some pretty things for that, wall hanging first! First baby, so you’ve got to go all out, right?! Plus I need something to keep me busy- just moved across the country away from family + still have 4 months to wait for baby girl ?.

  92. Courtney September 1, 2016 at 6:58 pm #

    I’ve been wanting to learn how to weave and join the #weavesquad! If I won, I would weave a piece for our hallway, I’ve been wanting to have a statement in the space so it isn’t just any ‘ole hallway ;)

    I’m in love with all the textile wall weavings I’ve been seeing lately, so I’d love to tackle a few of my own!

  94. Kath Webber September 1, 2016 at 7:04 pm #

    Cooing over allllll the delicious things over here…that weaving book looks great! I’ve yet to try my hand, I have a enviable stash (obvs) and would love to give it a go. A wall hanging would probably be an ideal first project with that delightful bundle, but I have a Ken for a project for my Autumn WIPS. I am desperate to cast on the Rocquaine sweater x

  95. Laura F. September 1, 2016 at 7:06 pm #

    I would make the top wall hanging! Beautiful! Thank you for a chance to win. :)

  97. Clare September 1, 2016 at 7:11 pm #

    Loving the pomcast!!
    I would make my son a pencil case to take to school in his new class. He’s super nervous and I think if we made this together with skills learned from the book it would be a lovely way to end the summer holidays.

  98. jacque September 1, 2016 at 7:14 pm #

    I would weave a rug to keep my toes warm this winter.

  105. PAULINE HATCHER September 1, 2016 at 7:50 pm #

    I have tried my hand at weaving on a home made frame, I would love to use a proper frame and make something special. ( see on Twitter).

    I plan to make an awesome boho wall hanging!

  107. Caroline September 1, 2016 at 7:56 pm #

    Would love to have this loom. Would be great for using my hand spun yarn which I don’t always seem to make enough for a knit or crotchet project. Could make a wonderful “collage” for the front of a purse.
    Thank you also for all the wonderful info plus the giggles that go along with it. Really enjoy listening to both of you.

  108. Sara September 1, 2016 at 8:06 pm #

    I have so been wanting to get back into knitting and try our weaving! I would attempt a small wall hanging for my sweet toddler’s bedroom.

  123. Melanie September 1, 2016 at 9:06 pm #

  127. Becca Pack September 1, 2016 at 9:35 pm #

    I’ve been loving woven wall hangings!! But they look so intimidating! This would be a perfect way to begin!

  128. Emily September 1, 2016 at 10:03 pm #

    A small wall hanging to start.

  130. Kia September 1, 2016 at 10:04 pm #

    Loved it! And I would try making a pillow on my loom instead of just a tapestry weave!

  131. Shelley bedik September 1, 2016 at 10:29 pm #

    I would love to use these materials to teach my students in my library more about weaving…

  135. Katie September 1, 2016 at 11:10 pm #

  136. Michelle murphy September 1, 2016 at 11:15 pm #

    I want to make my first weaving ever, something I have only just thought about but never put into action. I would love to make a small wall hanging as a token of love for a friend.

  137. Katie September 1, 2016 at 11:24 pm #

    I just shared on Facebook.

  142. Laura Mosher September 2, 2016 at 1:09 am #

  144. Erin September 2, 2016 at 1:11 am #

    I’ve made one woven wall-hanging before and would love to learn more techniques to use on a REAL loom instead of some cardboard… :) Maybe something for the nursery of my sister’s first daughter!

  145. Stephanie September 2, 2016 at 1:25 am #

    I’m currently planning to weave a wall hanging for the twin girls I am expecting this fall! The colors here are perfect, and I’m sure the book would add to my father limited arsenal of weaving skills!

  146. Ani September 2, 2016 at 1:29 am #

    I would make a wall hanging for my craft room/office! Thanks for the beautiful inspiration always!!

    I want to weave EVERYTHING such as a table runner for all holidays!

  157. Sarah Wilson September 2, 2016 at 4:33 am #

    Ooh, what a lovely weaving kit! I think a great set of absorbent coasters (I’ll never understand the non-absorbent kind, as long as I live) would be super fun on this loom!

  158. Miriam Miller September 2, 2016 at 4:33 am #

    I’d love to make a wall hanging incorporating nature and fiber. Using The concept of free form weaving (Saori) I would use a variety of textures but keep to a natural pallet.

  159. Barbara September 2, 2016 at 4:53 am #

    I’d like to try another wall hanging out maybe a bag. But coasters are a great idea too!

  160. Elflyn September 2, 2016 at 4:54 am #

  168. Ania September 2, 2016 at 10:45 am #

    Hi! I simply adore your pomcast. :D And it would be nice to win this book and the kit because I’d love to learn how to weave. I’ve never tried this art before.
    First I’d like to weave a fringed pouch. Ypu know, the happy kind of pouch: rectangular, striped black and white with neon yellow braids and hot pink and yellow fringes. Maybe with a little pompom or two. It would match knitted shawl I just finished perfectly. :)

  169. Ilaria September 2, 2016 at 1:47 pm #

    I made for my daughter a cardboard loom just to keep her busy for the summer holiday. She enjoyed so much making a small wall hanging …so it would be nice to win this giveaway for her to encourage her to keep on weaving lovely “wool art” pieces. :D

  170. Katie R. September 2, 2016 at 3:04 pm #

    Good morning!

    It is so serendipitous that I should stumble upon this weaving giveaway today, as I’ve been following multiple weavers on IG for a year or two now and have been dying to learn how to do it myself! Just last night I was looking up different tips and how-tos and had decided this would be the next craft I try. It looks like it would be such a therapeutic activity and I feel I could make some uniquely awesome gifts for friends and family if I had the skills. I actually have an upcoming baby shower for a dear friend, so it would be way cool to make her something from the book. Outside of that, I’m most interested in learning how to create woven wall hangings! Thanks!

  171. Calypso September 2, 2016 at 5:50 pm #

    Definitely some coasters for a happy table!

  172. Calypso September 2, 2016 at 5:51 pm #

    I shared on Facebook!

  173. Karen September 2, 2016 at 6:01 pm #

    As a complete beginner I would practice on the loom and try out different colour combinations and then hopefully go on to make a hall runner ☺

  174. Karen September 2, 2016 at 6:05 pm #

    I have retweeted and liked your comp. Best wishes K.

  175. Becca September 2, 2016 at 6:21 pm #

    I would make a wall hanging for my new apartment or a scarf! This is my first yarny podcast and I loved it! Thank you!

  176. Abigail Monico September 3, 2016 at 5:22 am #

    I’ve been dying to get my hands on Rachel’s new book! If I won, I would make all the things! But to start, I would definitelay want to make something for my friends. Rachel’s style of weaving is so bright and cheerful and her tips would be perfect to incorporate into special handwoven pieces for my best gals who always cheer me up!

    Thanks so much for this fun opportunity!

  177. Claire September 3, 2016 at 8:49 am #

    I’d love to turn that yarn into a wall hanging. I’m just starting out in weaving so the book is on my wish list.

  178. Emma September 3, 2016 at 11:12 am #

    Fab giveaway! I would like to try to make a walk hanging of some kind :)

  179. Rhiannon September 3, 2016 at 3:28 pm #

    I did a bit of weaving when I cut off a bit of my fingertip and couldn’t knit for a while, it was really fun!

    I would make a little rug for my bedroom :)

  180. Blue Eyed Night Owl September 3, 2016 at 10:43 pm #

    I once found a single vintage knitting needle in neon peach. I’ve been wanting to use it as the top of a woven wallhanging for ages. I’ve got the needle. Got one skein of matching yarn. But don’t have the rest. This would be very helpful and very exciting!:)

  181. Blue Eyed Night Owl September 3, 2016 at 10:46 pm #

    Of course I shared this awesome giveaway, and interview with fellow Dutchie, on my facebook:

  182. Calypso September 4, 2016 at 9:40 am #

    I would make a woven dream catcher.

  183. Melanie September 4, 2016 at 1:45 pm #

    I used to weave years ago when my girls were young and then haven’t been able to for such a long time. I would love to start again and remember weaving a scarf in order to get the tension right before tackling other things, so would weave a scarf or dishtowel first… and then keep going! Thanks for the chance to win this awesome giveaway!

  184. Marion September 4, 2016 at 5:42 pm #

    Lovely, inspiring interview – I have to practise darning immediately! So weaving isn’t that much of a difference. I would like to weave a cushion cover or maybe a tablerunner.

  185. emilie September 4, 2016 at 9:27 pm #

    I would absolutely love to try and weave a rug !!!

  186. Victoria Hadlow September 4, 2016 at 11:37 pm #

    I’d make some unique bookmarks because you can never have enough bookmarks.

  187. Nicole September 7, 2016 at 6:57 am #

    I would love to make friendship bracelets out of awesome handdyed wools, such a great giveaway!

  188. Eva Landeo September 12, 2016 at 4:54 pm #

    Thanks for the laughter, ladies!

    I’d really like to make a fiber enthusiast of my 12 year old . . .
