Floor Looms Table Looms

For well over a century, Leclerc looms have set the North American standard for weaving excellence. Preserving the level of quality set by the Leclerc family in the 1800's the looms have carried forward the best in weaving tradition while continually incorporating loom innovations. Examples of these enhancements can be found in the new Weavebird family of Computer-Dobby Looms, the Back-Hinge Treadle options for Leclerc floor looms as well as the Voyageur multi-shaft table loom, designed for travelers or those who have a small amount of space to weave but do not want to sacrifice functionality.

While the current Leclerc product line has evolved over time, today's buyer can be confident that their new Leclerc loom is designed and constructed with the experience gained with thousands of looms and satisfied customers. Many Leclerc looms are still in operation, passed down as heirlooms from generation to generation from weaver to weaver. If you have acquired an older Leclerc loom that is not identified below, or you are unsure which model it is, consult our Leclerc Loom History to help you identify it. In most cases we can still supply repair parts and upgrades to keep your loom weaving!

Leclerc Looms offer many options to allow the looms to be customized to specific weaving requirements and to allow for future functionality upgrades. All are made in the Province of Quebec using the highest grades of Canadian Maple, Birch and other woods for a durable and long lasting product.

Camilla Valley Farm Weavers' Supply is pleased to be able to provide the full line of Leclerc Looms to our customers. The current family of looms are summarized below with the Loom name linked to a more detailed descriptions of each.
