or: Look What Dad Made Long Ago!
From my comments in the last post:
Dad weighing in. Looks like a good loom to make basic weaves and not
occupy the living room. Back in hippy days, you could buy such a basic
loom kit for $35, so the price is right.
But you might find out if you want to weave for free, then move to
that or a better loom. The Herron Laptop loom is now available…will
send pics through e mail. It works, has a 19" rigid heddle (don't you
remember me flattening brass rods and drilling them?), hardwood where
needed but mostly stained pine, up and down shed, so two where the
other says three, but they may count neutral as a shed. It doesn't sit
on the table, you wedge a u-shape notch against the table edge, capture
the other side with your tummy. Mine is 2 feet by 2 feet, if you want
to play with it first.
Let me know if you want the Herron Laptop Loom.
How dang cute is that? He sent along a couple of photos, too. I'm going to have to give it a go at some point. Along with every other fiber-related art, I'll FIND the time somehow.
