As you know we are a small family run home business. We do not work on the weekend because we focus on our families during that time. We currently ship orders out orders on MWF. M-F we have people filling the looms for orders made. Since adding so many colors and variety’s we don’t always have the exact color and shape of a current order on the shelf ready to be sent. So we have to fill them after the order comes in. Because of the current occasional issue of pegs popping out, we have decided to let looms that had to have pegs glued in that day, sit over night to completely dry and then package them to see if that would help solve that issue. Because of this, if you order your loom on the weekend and it is not one that is already filled on the shelf. It will get pulled on Monday and filled, dry on Tuesday, and be shipped on Wednesday. That still stays within our current shipping policy which is 3-4 business days. Priority mail will take 2-3 business days from the day we ship to arrive within the U.S. and you should receive a tracking notice that your items have been shipped. We hope this clarifies any question on our shipping schedule. If you have any other questions about this. Please contact us personally at: cindwoodcrafts@msn..com
I would like to discuss in this post the glue we use and why. For 12 years Cindy has been using Titebond Premium Wood Glue to glue the pegs into the looms. We try to have enough glue to seal around the peg but not too much so it looks globby. We dip each peg in glue and then hammer it into the hole. We can not use gorilla glue, or super glue due to the fact Cindy has severe asthma and is allergic to these glues. Though wood glue does not melt the plastic the way the other glues do to make them adhere, we have always had success using the wood glue. With regular use the pegs should stay in place for a good long time, but if your loom gets dropped, wet, superhot, etc.. the bond may break between the glue and the peg and it could come out. Also if you wiggle the pegs back and forth you will indeed break the bond and they will eventually come out.
You can easily fix your loom by applying another drop of wood glue,super glue, gorilla glue, or e6000 craft glue and then letting it dry for 24-48 hours. We try to make a very high quality product. Each peg is hand glued…(NOT BY MACHINE) so at times there may be a few pegs that did not get quite enough glue. So if a peg pops out feel free to re-glue it with whichever glue you prefer and then keep looming. We do not profess to have an indestructible product, but we are working hard to try and have them be very sturdy and usable.
We have some customers that prefer to have their looms sent without the pegs glued in so that when they arrive with the empty looms and different color pegs in baggies they can put them in certain peg designs for patterns and either glue them in themselves (with their preference of glue), or just keep them loose so they can change the peg patterns when they want. If anyone one would prefer their looms sent this way you may request by email or in the notes section of your order.
If at any time you have a concern about your loom, please contact us by phone or email and we would be happy to assist you.
