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.


Hours of operation

Tuesday-Friday 10am – 3pm     Saturday  11am – 4pm

For your visit to The Little Loomhouse, we recommend you wear comfortable closed-toe shoes, with a back, suitable for walking over gravel surfaces.

Mini-Weaving Lessons are available during our open hours. The cost is $7/person for the 20 minute session. You can expect to weave a “mug rug”/coaster souvenir to take home. Due to Covid-19 outbreak, space is limited, for larger family groups please call for a reservation.

The Loomhouse will be hosting Cultural Pass families on Saturdays from 11am-3pm from June 5 – August 7, 2021.  For more information about Cultural Pass or learn how to sign up, please visit https://fundforthearts.org/culturalpass/
