Serenity Looms NEW
by: Marsha

It used to be that when they got a product in the store. They wanted to see first hand how well they sold and if demand got great enough they would start including that product online. That is more than likely the policy they still have at Hobby Lobby. They do that with alot of their products.

Serenity Loom at Hobby Lobby NEW
by: Anonymous

Yes, they do have the Serenity Loom at Hobby Lobby. They are selling them for $25.99 in the store, not sure why they aren't selling them online. The pegs are really far apart.

serenity loom at hobby lobby NEW
by: scokeep

I don't understand why I've seen multiple sites stating that you can get the pink Serenity loom at Hobby Lobby but when you go on their website it's not listed. Are they selling it or not? I understand that the original version was discontinued and revamped and that the new version is suppose to be available but where and how much?

New Serenity Loom™ on the way to the Hobby Lobby stores NEW
by: Betty Wilkinson

I wanted to tell everyone that the new Serenity Loom™ is being shipped next week and will be in the Hobby Lobby stores in about a month. I also am taking advance orders on it and you can e mail me at bwilkinson9@cox.net with requests or questions. The gauge will be a little bigger and the shape more streamlined thanks to the help of Michael (Mikey) Sellick of The Crochet Crowd.
I hope now that it won't be intimidating. The curly que areas that were difficult have been removed and the gauge is wide enough to get your fingers through. It also will have a free loom guide and a new ergonomically designed pick (polka dots with cushioned handle) with the steel embedded so it won't break and the angle of the tip more like a dentist's pick.
I'd appreciate hearing any suggestions and I'm happy to post the new instructions if you have an older loom.

Serenity Loom
by: Marsha

Peg what you might have to do is check more than one location of Hobby Lobby for the loom. Since I've been told they aren't selling them anymore you might have to check the clearance section of each of the stores. Also check ebay and your local flea markets for them. Good luck finding them.

Serenity Looms
by: Marsha

this is for the person that wanted to know where to get a Serenity Loom. Hobby Lobby is still the only place where you can buy them. I am glad to hear that some of you have conquered this loom. I am going to try again with mine since I am no longer with Hobby Lobby and have time to experiment with knitting and the such.
Keep trying all of you and good luck with your projects.

serenity loom
by: Jeanne

I'm so glad I came across this page! I've been working on the round looms now for about a year and bought my Serenity Loom at Hobby Lobby since it was half priced! I love it but it IS a bit awkward until you get used to it! I have found that going in the "S", it's more time consuming, but again, stick with it and you'll be old hat in no time!

infinity loom
by: sherrill

Good Grief!!! I just ordered my first infinity loom, cause, like a lot of you, I want to do an afgan in one piece. The comments I'm reading here have me scared half to death. I'm proficient with the round and long looms, have made many many hats, scarves, shawls, and other flat and round things, even tube scoks. I'v found that your imagination is your best guide; don't use a lot of different stitches, but use different blends of yarn and colors to make different looks.

Has anyone had real success with the infinity loom, and where can I find really good instructions for using it?

Thank you all, Sherrill

Now I'm Really Scared
by: Hoping I Can Do It

I have been using the round and long Knifty Knitter looms for about a month and have enjoyed them a lot. I have made hats and scarves for everyone in the family, grandkids, and son-in-law. I was out of recipients and live in a small town so I wasn't sure any charities could use my stuff (I still make occasional errors though nothing like when I tried to use knitting needles). So I decided to try making an afghan for my living room.

I wanted it wider than the long blue loom would allow so I ordered a Serenity Loom from Crafts Etc. The picture did look like it could be a challenge, but after your stories about how hard it is to use I am really concerned. I have already purchased the yarn and was planing to use one strand of denim blue and one strand of denim verigated by Patons Canadiana. I have been so proud of myself for actually finishing projects with the looms. I tend to start things and if they are too hard or I make too many mistakes I quit.

WOW if I have to use all that blue yarn for hats and scarves it will be embarassing. Somewhere, maybe the rescue missing, there will be a group of people with matching colors. All over town people will point at them and say "He must be from the rescue mission, he has one of thier hats." Oh well, maybe I can make dog blankets for the dog shelter.

I'll let you know if I finish the afghan. If you never hear from me again you will know what happened if you are driving through a small town in Kansas and see a whole bunch of people wearing matching blue hats and scarves.

Video for serenity loom
by: Marsha

There is not a video for this loom but knowing utube you never know there might be someone on that website that might have recorded themselves using the loom. I have heard they have all kinds of crochet instructions as well as other craft instructions. Good luck!

serenity loom
by: Jeannine

I just bought a serenity loom. My first experience with loom knitting was on the round looms. I find the serenity loom intimidating. Is there a video out with more information? I am having trouble with the stopping point and turning back. The round looms was easier with a continous wrap. Any help would be appreciated.

loom beginner
by: Marsha

I do not have a picture of my serenity loom but you should be able to see one on the Hobby Lobby website, maybe even Ebay might still have pictures of what one looks like. From personal experience if you are just beginning the knitting loom I would not recommend the Serenity until you have quite a bit of experience. The longer loom like Knifty Knitter has or any of the other companies that sell straight looms. The Serenity is an S shape and can be difficult to work with. But as I said that is my opinion. Anybody else have a comment?

Serenity Loom
by: Sandi

I've just discovered loom knitting and I LOVE. I want to purchase a loom large enough to do an afghan but am unsure whether to choose the Serenity or simply a longer version of the one I've been using for scarves. FEEDBACK? PHOTOS of one you've done?

serenity looms
by: marsha

I don't know what Hobby Lobby is doing but apparently they have decided to start selling these looms again. Hopefully these will be better constructed than the first ones. But I think they have a new company handling the looms. Those of you with problems did you get your looms working again? Let me know.

loom
by: peg

I have the serenity loom, and I have been using it for about 4 months. I love it, but the pegs do fall out. I have repaired mine with super glue. Seems to do the trick. I have done several baby and single bed size blankets. It does take time, but the finished project looks smoother than the ones I have pieced together. Happy knitting.

Broken Loom
by: Marsha Mason

Denise I wanted to give you an update on the situation with the Serenity Looms. I have not been able to get a hold of anyone yet but apparently Hobby Lobby has decided to discontinue selling the looms. Maybe because of problems showing up with the looms. As soon as I find something out I will notify you. I am still trying to track down the full name of the company that sold them to Hobby Lobby. In the meantime can you use an Epoxy glue on the pegs to reattach them? This is just a suggestion.

need information
by: Denise

I have been working on an afghan/blanket to be given as a Xmas gift. I was just about 2/3 finished with it when 2 pegs cracked off. I had been doing a 1 over 1 e-wrap stitch. I was forced to remove the entire piece from the loom (bind off) as I could no longer continue with the knitting with 2 cracked off pegs. My question is: who is the manufacturer of this Serenity Loom? Possibly I bought a defective loom as it was not abused in any way and using a loose 1 over 1 e-wrap was not putting any real stress on the pegs. I am sooooo disappointed that I am unable to continue and make this item as large as I originally intended (for an adult).
Thanks for your help!

Serenity Loom location
by: Marsha

I bought mine at Hobby Lobby. The ones that were on ebay were some that either customers or employees of Hobby Lobby got a hold of and sold them. I would check with Crafts, etc. which is the online site for Hobby Lobby and see if they have any. I am an associate at the Hobby Lobby here in West Columbia, SC and I have had these looms on back order for about three weeks now. But I am telling you if you will go on the Hobby Lobby website you will see a link for Crafts etc. and then look under needlework if they are listed there you can order them directly. Otherwise you can check you local store if you have one in your area. Give me a shout if you are still running into any problems.

where to buy a serenity loom
by: Kim


Hi I was wondering where you bought your serenity loom. They used to have them on ebay but now I haven't found them for a bit. I was saving for one and now can't get one.

hope this helps
by: Marsha

Hollie, I am glad that you are interested in trying the larger loom. When I bought my Serenity loom it came with a pattern book inside kind of like what the Knifty Knitter looms used to have. That is the set not the individuals. I am using that as my guide on doing a blanket for my friend. I would suggest that you use one of the pattern sheets to guide you through the amount of yarn you might need. The size of your loom will determine how much yarn you will need as well. I am using a single strand for right now until I can get used to this wild and wooly piece of equipment. This loom is definitely not for the timid that is for sure. I am glad to hear from you too Kathy. I have mixed yarns for different project as well and noticed how sometimes my projects will shrink like yours did and other times it seems they swell up or tangle up. Have you had that happen?

Serenity Patterns
by: Hollie

Would you mind telling me more about your pattern for the cover you are making for your friend? I would be most happy for any hints you could give as I am tired of putting afghans together and would love to be able to do whole thing at one time. I have no idea how to figure out how much yarn I need so I really need help. I have used other looms and have even taught others to use them but I feel like I need to get all my yarn in advance and I can't find anywhere that I can get the info. Have you had the same problem?

Loom fun!
by: Kathy

Hi Marsha!
I just started loom knitting the end of November, so have only been at it 2 1/2 short
months. I started with the Knifty Knitter round
loom set, made some hats and then wanted to make
matching scarves so I bought a 36-peg-the purple-
long Knifty Knitter. I also bought a couple of
pattern leaflets they had at Wal-Mart. I must
have tried about 15 or 20 times to follow their
instructions to make scarves and they all came
out too thick and bulky. So I experimented. (Oh,
I neglected to mention I was trying to make some
loose fluffy FunFur scarves, something like the
ones one sees for sale in the stores.) After many
trials and errors, I came up with starting from the peg with one strand of Caron Simply Soft and
one strand of Lion Brand Fun Fur (you can use 2
strands of this if you want more "fur")wrapping
to the right, every other peg, to the 13th peg
(which is 7 wraps). Cross straight across the
loom and wrap back to the end. Push the strands
down and do the same wraps again. Knit over.
Continue for as long as you want the scarf to be.
BUT-the whole tube will shrink together to the
center after about ten rows, making a scarf that's only about 2 1/2 inches wide--perfect for
today's fashion! And it will stretch out a little
longer than when 1st knit. After I'm done and
have sewn off the ends, I lay it across my leg
and "pluck" the Fun Fur strands up from the
regular yarn, so it's fuzzier! Makes a GREAT
scarf! Since Nov. I've already made somewhere
between 40 and 50 of these as gifts, and now
have orders from many ladies for many more!!
I've made matching hats for some, and they all
love them because they're not as tight to the
head as commercial ones, and becuz they can get
the exact color they want!!
Happy knitting!!
