A year ago I bought my first* loom, a new Glimåkra Emilia 50cm rigid heddle.
This past weekend I bought my fourth loom – my first floor loom – a 1970s Glimåkra 100cm Ideal (4S/6T).
my handsome loom
I’m waiting on a shipment from the lovely and responsive people at Glimåkra USA with new heddles, tie-up, and some lamm rods before I can start using the loom.
I’ve designed a three stage plan for upgrading the loom to 8S/8T over time. 4S/6T to 6S/6T to 8S/8T. I decided that I can live with four shafts while I learn countermarch.
While I wait for the necessary parts, I have placemats to finish up on my table loom.
This fabric I’m creating is awesome. I can’t wait to see how they wash up.
