Printed cotton fabrics, amazing crisp designs
We think this image is simply stunning. Done on a sewing machine - amazing.
These scissors are a dream to work with. A bit pricey but definitely worth it!

Welcome to Viking Loom
Welcome to the Viking Loom online shop, complementing our bricks and mortar shop in the heart of York. We stock an eclectic mix of products, embracing quality, colour, shape, texture and variety. We want you to find a place for handicrafts in your lives and hope to inspire you be it online or in the shop just a stones throw from the historic Minster.
We source first quality beads from Europe and create our own range of exclusive signature mixes which work really well in jewellery and are great for embellishment. Our complimenting range of smaller beads and crystals are the perfect way to add sparkle to your knitting and sewing projects. OUr beads are supported by a fantastic range of well tried and tested clasps, wires, threads and tools.
We offer a massive range of cotton fabrics for quilting, a few of which are available to buy online but we do recommend that you pay the high street shop to get the best choice available - new fabrics are arriving regularly.
We also stock linen, aida and canvas for embroidery, cross stitch and tapestry in as many colours as we can find. Our range of stranded DMC and Anchor threads are supported by cotton perle, variegated threads, silks and rayons. We sell beginner kits in all sort of style to encourage a new generation of stitchers plus silk gauze, linen twill and wool blanket for the more adventurous stitcher. We have an everchanging stock of cross stitch and tapestry kits. You really should take a look at our own range of York cross stitch kits to commemorate your visit to York.
As an independent business, we pride ourselves in going that extra mile for our customers.
