The Adoption is Final...

We picked up the new baby this afternoon. She's a solid cherry Loomcraft 8-shaft, 12-treadle loom with a 45" weaving width. She has wonderful patina. The loom is c. 1981 and the loom maker, John Post, of Littleton Colorado only makes a few looms each year with each one handcrafted. Mr. Post has been making these beautiful looms for over 35 years and now only sells through Halcyon Yarn.

Just gorgeous. Come visit me sometime. Halcyon Yarns is only a few miles away and just think of all the weaving yarn cones you can snatch off the shelves.

It's absolutely beautiful. Never mind that I wouldn't know what to do with it. I love the rug!!

Sure is beautiful! I've caught the weaving bug myself of late, and can totally relate to your excitement! Enjoy...

Terri,

Beautiful loom. I recently purchased one just like it and am now ready to learn to weave!
Have a question... can you send a close-up of the break mechanism? I think something must be missing on mine.
Thank you so much, Cheri
