Welcome David!

 WovenArt has a new member in it's studio family. David (from Louet) arrived Friday afternoon, in a great big box.
 There were a lot of pieces to put together.
 And a LOT of screws.

The instructions were clearly written and illustrated, and in just four hours of labor, David was sitting up in his new spot.  This loom is a bit different from my other looms. This is our first "boy". He doesn't take up very much floor space, but he is very powerful. 8 harnesses means he can tackle complex patterns. Sturdy design and construction means he will be able to make rugs.  He has a sinking shed instead of a rising one, and an overhead beater.  I think I had better try him out before any students get to him, don't you?  You know, a test drive.
