Welcome to The Little Loomhouse, a fiber arts education organization supported by the Lou Tate Foundation, a 501(c)3 nonprofit.  Our mission is to continue the legacy of founder Lou Tate, master weaver, by ensuring the preservation of The Little Loomhouse landmark cabins and by educating students of all ages about the history of weaving and textile arts through diverse programs, residencies, and community partnerships.


COVID-19 Response

The Little Loomhouse is operating with limited capacity. We encourage reservations. Our hospitality promise to you includes our employees will be wearing face coverings and maintaining social distance. We are running a hepa filter in the Weaving Studio and we will be sanitizing all high touch and high traffic areas. We ask that if you are not feeling well please stay home.

Thank you for your cooperation.
