The Mighty Wolf has Arrived!

My new loom arrived just before lunchtime on Friday and by 1030pm I was at Step 14 in the assembly manual, less than halfway through. Today, despite having  been to the recycling tip, attended Guild, watched as my grandson steered the Committee through the new website and got home late, I have assembled the loom bench and tidied up. Tomorrow I shall put the heddles into the shaft. I do not think I will finish it. I have been ill since New Year and half been left short of energy.

I have taken detailed photos and a few are below.

About Me

I am weaver and - -. I dye my yarns with acid dyes, I paint my warps, put fabric collages and stencils on my weaving. I have three looms, a 12 inch wide, 12 shaft Meyer for demos and courses, a 30 inch Louet Kombo which is nominally portable but has a stand, two extra beams and a home-made device containing a fan reed. And last a 32 shaft Louet Megado which is computer controlled, has a sectional warp and a second warp beam and I am the proud owner of an AVL warping wheel which I love to bits and started by drilling holes in. I inserted a device for putting a cross in. I have just acquired an inkle loom and had a lesson from an expert so I can watch TV and weave at the same time. I am interested in weaving with silk mostly 60/2 although I do quite a bit with 90/2 silk. I also count myself as a bookbinder with a special interest in Coptic binding.
