Rated 5 out of 5Â by Panzy Needed potholders -- decided to make the best ones!
My mother once kept me well supplied in good, heavy but flexible potholders. Without her, I needed replacements. I decided to make the best ones. These are heavy enough to be a trivet, flexible enough to grab the edge of a pie plate, and pretty enough to keep on the counter. The loom is sturdy enough for years of use. I ordered more loops to make more in colors for my decor and for small gifts.

I ordered this as a cute type of gift for a young girl that was coming for a visit ( stay ,? ) when she started the first potholder, the adults had to help her,? so they thought,? after the first one, she made one all by herself, I had ordered the extra loops, just for good measure,!!! and the adults got into making their own, all in all it was educational,? and a fun thing for ALL ages, evidently, ???
Fred, ( thanks for doing what you do,!!! )

I purchased this item for my granddaughter and was delighted that I could find the loom in medal. Most of them I have seen advertised are plastic. I had one as a child, got them for my daughters and now my granddaughter. One of those items that never get old!

All the stores are carrying the plastic looms this year, but I got to spend an afternoon with our six year old grand-daughter making a potholder, on a loom just like I once had. What a great memory, and now I even have a colorful souvenir.

I purchased this metal loom and loops when visiting The Vermont Country Store about a year ago. I absolutely love the quality of both. The loops occasionally have a stray thread, however that does not make the potholder any less sturdy or beautiful. It can just be clipped off. The cotton loops make wonderful thick potholders and the colors are vibrant. I pull this project out every so often, I have refilled my stock of loops, and love reliving the memory of making these old fashioned potholders. I use them everyday!

Rated 5 out of 5Â by plee hard to find metal loom
i'd been looking for a metal loom for my little granddaughter. i know she would love making potholders just like i did years ago. however, the only looms i've been able to find are made of plastic and they break almost immediately. we have not tried this one yet, but it looks plenty sturdy and like it is made well. i really thought i was not going to find a metal one, so i was very happy to have found this one. vermont country store has many quality products and i'm glad to have come across their site.

This was a gift for the little girl who recieved the Uncle Wiggly game and book for Christmas. Her Mom and I both remember making potholders for our grandparents and parents! So the tradition will live on thanks to you and your wonderful store and catalog!!!
I know that I will be ordering again in the near future. You still have the nightgowns I wore as a child and the Calico Aprons my grandmother wore!!!!!
