My mother-in-law had a big rug weaving loom that sat on the floor. Even with a house full of kids in a place that wasn't that big, she managed to find room for her loom.
She didn't use this very much during the summer so was able to fold it up and get it out of the way. During the long, cold winter days she would try to find time to spend working at the loom.
I think this was more relaxing for her than doing anything else. This was a welcome relief for her after trying to keep up with the kids all day long. As the kids got older and moved out of the house, she spent more and more time making rugs at her loom.
None of her kids were ever interested in learning how to do this. She has been gone for a few years now, and I think they sold her loom after she passed away. Anytime I see a big loom set up somewhere I am always reminded of her sitting and working at her loom.
