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.
Owner of Woven Art for 10 years, I learned so much about fiber arts. The education of owning a yarn shop was as valuable as the Master of Fine Arts in Fiber from University of Michigan. I am pleased now to have the opportunity to put these things together. N.anne Design Studio.
