The Lone Star Loom Room opened in August 2002 as a teaching studio for beginning weaving classes in Houston, Texas. Tracy Kaestner had been teaching weaving through the Contemporary Handweavers of Houston at area Community centers, lugging looms and equipment around wasn’t much fun. The Kaestner’s added an addition above their garage and the Lone Star Loom Room studio was born.
June Hanson began Nordic Studio in 1983 in Ontario, Canada. She imported Swedish Yarns for weavers. June had booths at Conferences all over North America for over 20 years. In the summer of 2005 June decided it was time to retire and sell her business. In November 2005 Tracy and June worked out the details and Tracy became the owner of Nordic Studio.
After nearly 20 years of running the Lone Star Loom Room, Tracy decided it was time to retire. She sold the Loom Room to the current owner, Kathy, who moved the store up to Moline, Illinois. Kathy is dedicated to maintaining the fast friendly service, and large selection of fine Swedish yarns and weaving books that the Loom Room is known for.
The Lone Star Loom Room sells the full range of Bockens of Sweden yarns, Venne Yarns, Weaving Books, Vav Magazine and equipment from a variety of manufacturers, we specialize in Louet looms.
The Swedish and Dutch yarns are truly exquisite, both in the quality of the finely spun yarns, and the outstanding selection of colors. If you haven’t woven with them yet, you may want to give them a try on your next project and experience the exceptional quality for yourself. The Lone Star Loom Room is known for our friendly efficient customer service, we attempt to get orders out within 24 hours of receiving your order.
I'm looking forward to working with you!
