"Jenny and others arachnes
At Brasil there are several kinds of loom. Now I use a wooden loom, but a long time ago I used to make a little cushion with heavy card covered with plain cotton. I think wooden loom is more stable and secure.

If you have any problems with the software, let me know and I will try to help.
