There are people everywhere who love weavies and weaving. If you are looking for others to learn and share with, here are some places you may want to start. If you have other suggestions on sites, please let me know.   

Buxton Brook Looms
Weave in the palm of your hand … with Weavette® Looms.

Buxton Brook Looms & Design is the premier source for the Weavette® looms, identically manufactured from the historic Weave-It® looms and compatible with the original Loomette, Jiffy-Loom, and Magic-Loom from the 1940s.   This portable handheld loom system (crafted in hardwood with stainless steel spacing pins) weaves textured motifs in various shapes and sizes.  Thread the loom with yarn, cord, ribbon or wire for limitless modular design possibilities. Embellish with beads, feathers, or embroidery as you weave.  Combine with knitting or crocheting.  Assemble woven pieces together for fashion, jewelry, decor, scrapbooks or miniatures.  Weavette® Looms provide an intergenerational & educational connection to a traditional craft, whether you’re a novice or an expert weaver.  (Wholesale accounts available.  Call 800-358-2782 for complete product and marketing information.)

eLoomaNation
Big Ideas from Little Looms - A site by Jana Trent - explores the many types of little looms, with notes about their use, history, plus tips, tricks, ideas, weaving and assembly. This is a site written with panache and great love for these tiny looms. Jana shows a number of her own fabulous projects.  Do check out the Gallery with copies of many of the original small loom project books. These show clothing for babies and adults made with Weave-it squares, several books for Loomette, Bucilla Magic Squares and Jiffy Loom plus four books of weaving patterns for small looms. The clothing styles are definitely dated but the techniques work just as well as they did in 1938. 
VIP Fibers
This site is devoted to spinning yarn from pet fiber. Victoria pointed out that she loves Weavies One because it offers great ideas for the use of small amounts of yarn. Go to Project Ideas and Pictures and slide waaaay down. You'll find a great picture of a Weavie Mouse made out of spun cat hair. Which may be a perfect example of irony.
