Episode 4: Loom Manufacturing and Tapestry Weaving with Claudia Chase and Elena Zuyok of Mirrix Looms
I had so much fun talking the mother-daughter team behind Mirrix Looms, Claudia Chase and Elena Zuyok. Claudia founded Mirrix Looms in 1996 when she wanted a portable loom that she could take to weave with at her children’s sports games. 22 years later Mirrix Looms is a beloved company and loom used by tapestry weavers and bead weavers all over the US and around the world. On this episode I chatted with Claudia and her daughter Elena about how their company has developed, what it’s like to run a family business together, their tips for people who want to dive into tapestry or bead weaving for the first time, and lots more.
