Stand for My Table Loom
Bob gets the night off tonight to go visit a friend, but hopefully he can start the treadles tomorrow after he gets out of work. This is the test project, since we are just going from a picture with no measurements. If this one works well, he will make another one for the wider loom. If adjustments need to be made, at least he won't have to change both loom stands.
It will be so nice to have a handy loom to take to workshops, or to weave narrow projects such as scarves. I hate tying up my bigger looms for those kinds of projects, but hate weaving on a hand operated table loom. It's way too slow.
I signed up to take a linen class, taught by Kati Meek, early in March. I may be asking for too much to have both loom stands done by March 9th, but am hoping they are. Then I can decide whether to take the 15" or the 22" loom.
