Am I the only loom band addict fan left in the UK?

    So, I am a 37 year old teacher and I got into the loom band craze in 2014 (because it's the only arts and crafts activity that I can do and it's a good form of mindfulness for me) but had to stop for health reasons. 2 years later, the shops no longer stock loom bands and no-one appears to do it anymore apart from very young children but I still enjoy doing it when I can. As the thread title says, am I the only adult left who likes making loom bracelets?

    Loom bands? Goodness. A blast from the past. I expect you can get them off the Internet.

    That is indeed where I get them from. I ordered some more from eBay a few days ago, in fact! It’s sad to think that people have gone off this craft!

    Update: I got a very good loom and haul from eBay. Now waiting for this ridiculously hot weather to cool down a bit, so that I am motivated to use them :)

    I saw a kit in a shop recently, the Works I think, so try that place if you need supplies.

    P.S. I still de-stress with my fidgit spinner, am I the only one?

    Thanks very much. I thought that the Works stopped doing the kits ages ago but will continue to keep an eye out just in case. :) I bought 2 fidget spinners last year but haven't fiddled with them for ages.

    I still like them too! I find it relaxing to make loom band bracelets while I'm talking to someone or watching TV- it gives my hands something to do (nothing rude intended by that lol.) I also like playing with blue tac for the same reason.
