We developed the first of our Friendly Loomâ„¢  products in the 1980's in response to a growing demand from educators and parents concerned with introducing 'hands on' creative activities to children and teenagers. Our products are designed to provide fun, challenging, educational experiences while developing concentration, fine and gross motor control and a better understanding of spatial relationships and patterning.

In this fast-paced world where children are being forced to grow up too quickly, we believe that it is essential to help them slow things down and experience their creative ability by introducing the the joys of working with their hands.

As educators, and parents, one of our most important challenges is to encourage the development of self-esteem and self-confidence. For a child to be able to say "I made this myself", the pride in achievement is not only felt in that child's mind and heart, it is represented in a tangible form by something beautiful and practical to own or to give as a gift.

We hope that you will find Harrisville Designs Friendly Loomâ„¢  products useful tools for helping children discover the excitement of the creativity that is within them.
