Isn't She Lovely?

After a long day of work on Tuesday, I got in the car and drove north for about 2 hours. Destination: Anacortes, Washington. Purpose: to acquirer my new loom! Isn't she lovely? I had seen an ad in the "Equipment for Sale" notebook at Weaving Works that seemed like a good deal. $200. for the loom, stand, shuttles, and bench. It's a Nilus Leclerc loom, but that doesn't mean too much to me. My knowledge of looms is very limited, but this 4 harness table loom looked like just the right place for me to start. I googled this type of loom but I still can't tell what year it was made and the lady who sold had no idea. I can't wait to get started weaving!

I haven't touched my loom once since I finished my beginner's class a few years ago. Maybe we should have a loom warping party. I need some push to get going.

Wow! She really is pretty. I recently learnt the ins and outs of weaving on a four shaft table loom like that one and it was so much fun.
Do keep us posted on how you get along!
