Hello all,

I purchased a Kessenich 8 shaft floor loom a few months ago. I am looking for some guidance or a manual of some sort for reassembling the loom, as it seems like a recipe for disaster as I'm a beginner floor weaver and have no idea what I'm doing. If anyone has a manual or a guide for the kessenich, I'd really appreciate it! It would make my year!

Much thanks!




You might want to contact Bruce Niemi at Kessinich looms.  He is still making looms, and his website would be the place to find infoemation on them.


Hello,  I recently received a vintage Lily Mills Table Loom made in Shelby NC. I am absolutely a beginner and it did not come with any information. I think it’s a two harness loom, but not even sure of that. Any help?

thank you- Debi


Thought I would post information on restoring a Kessenich loom. I would have started a new thread can't see where or how to do that.  I put this information together after struggling with redoing the internal cords on my 1950's cherry Kessenich floor loom.  There is so little information out there explaining the process. I hope this will be helpful.   I have a PDF file but can't post it on here. That can be found at wwindhorses.blogspot.com.  That is my blog.  Leslie
