You Were Made For This, Little Loom

Remember that cute little GlimÄkra Ideal loom? The one we re-sized so I could use it as a workshop loom? You can read about it here. Well, it is time to take the show on the road, so to speak. Time to go meet Jason Collingwood in his basic rug weaving workshop.

I wove like crazy to finish off another rag rug warp, yielding two more rag rugs. That gave me one more opportunity to practice taking everything apart (with a warp on the loom) and putting it back together again, before dressing the loom with the workshop warp. Done! And not a moment too soon. Whew!

Okay, little loom, let’s go!

May you find fun in your week.

On the road,

  1. How fun to see this little loom packed and ready to go! I know you will both have a great time with Jason Collingwood, he is an amazing instructor.

  2. First day of class was great, though a bit intense. A lot of learning and practicing. Twenty students in the class, but Jason is well able to handle all the questions. It’s fun to learn new things, and new ways of doing things. Hopefully, I’ll be able to post a few pics for you in Friday’s post.
