Loom with a view

Another image from the Sharon Historical Society - the giant, elegant loom on display in the entrance hall. I've always wanted to try weaving - I just need that yarn in the colors of yesterday's photo and I'll make the finest shawl in Sharon!

just found out from Sally's comment yesterday that those are called Jenny shot...100% true, some of the Jenny shots, reminds me of Chinese ink painting, though with more colors :-)
If you ever get your loom in action let us know, I think you'll have some first orders from Ed and me :-)

Weaving is a wonderful art, and the loom is an art object in itself.

Pant, pant! Pity it is in a museum and not in use. This here is a giant of a good-looking four-shaft jack (counter-balance?) Jenny, take up weaving; start with a small 4-shaft table loom or a rigid heddle; get in touch with a local guild and see if you can borrow one. The US is currently the easiest country in the world to get good equipment, find good wool, and the guild system is active. Who knows, this time next year, you might be demonstrating at the museum. Pick up the latest Handwoven today!!!

Jenny, do you know the work of Meg (from Nelson, who wrote the comment just above mine)? Look at www.megweaves.co.nz
