If someone out there has a set of instructions that they would be willing to either copy and send to me or email it to me I would be so appreciative. I have somehow in moving numerous times lost mine. I have all of the looms, but I need a refresher course on how it's done, since I haven't made any since the 70s.I have racked my brains trying to find mine and they have done a disappearing act on me. Thanks to anyone in advance. I will be eternally grateful.
Do you have a Micheal's or other craft store near you? These often offer free lessons and may even give instruction pamphlets free just for asking.
I recently received a Love and Money hexagon loom and am wanting to find the original lap weaving instructions. Does anyone have a PDF for this?
Thank you so much!
I have found the instruction on eHow for your loom. You can go there to see how this works. www.ehow.com/
On YouTube, they do have some videos that people have made to show you how the loom works, how to thread the loom, and some different designs you can make with the loom. www.youtube.com/
This is a hexagon loom tutorial that is also on YouTube that you can look at and it is an easy video to follow. www.youtube.com/
Poehere has provided good links with clear instructions so no need to duplicate.
A Pdf may be good but being able to watch someone complete the steps (with closed caption) and be able to go stop and then review again always seems to be an easier way for beginners.
There are several sizes of looms and of course all shapes as well as accessories. I found this website that offers all kinds of items pertaining to looms.

I recently purchased a set of Love and Money Looms at a yard sale but they came with no directions. I searched the web but the links that I did find are no longer there. I was hoping someone could tell me a website or have the directions. I have already tried Ebay. Any help would be appreciated.

If this is the type of loom like a Knifty Knitter, round loom, then you can find all kinds of help by doing a yahoo search using the name Isela Phelps. There are a lot of yahoo groups as well. One is a class that is awesome, it's called LoomClass. Search for board knitting, loom knitting, knifty knitter, things like that. There are a ton of blogs out there with a lot of helpful info. Hope this is what you were looking for. Susan (05/05/2008)

I had to look up what a "love & money loom" was. Never heard it called that before, however I do have a round one and the instructions. I don't know if this would help you if your looms are square, but I would be glad to make a copy and send it to you. I have had mine for probably better than 25 yrs, lost instructions due to moving but I went to Micheal's and they were giving a class on this type loom and they made a copy of instructions FREE of charge, I was thrilled.
