Margaret Stump has been weaving on pin looms for over 40 years. (Actually it is closer to 50, going on 60, but she prefers not to admit it.) She is the author of three books: Pin Loom Weaving, Pin Loom Weaving To Go, and Adorable Beasts; 30 Pin Loom Woven Animals & 4 Playscapes. In addition to her books, she has published a growing number of projects in national magazines devoted to weaving including Handwoven, Easy Weaving with Little Looms, and Yarn Australia.

Over the years, weaving on pin looms, Margaret has made innumerable blankets, hangings, bags, purses, animals, scarves and household items because she continues to be excited about pushing the limits of the possible while using these tiny, simple looms. Next to weaving, Margaret enjoys teaching and sharing her experience and knowledge of pin loom weaving techniques and projects. Margaret lives in Minnesota with her husband Jerry.
