I just got my brand new spring 2 (8/110) from Holland this week, and I'm thrilled!!
There are no weaving retailers in Israel so I couldn't try any loom for a "test drive", but I've watched almost all the assembly videos I could find on Youtube to learn about each loom to learn how they are built.
I chose Louet spring.
I chose it because of your thorough and clear explanation about that loom, Jane. Your love for the loom got into me. (And the option of extending it to 12 shafts in future).
Moving from an 8 shaft table loom to a floor loom is a wonderful challenge!! Adding my legs into the process is not easy at first ( a lot of unweaving... 😀 )
but I'm on it.
I will send picture of the towels I weave on it (turned twill) along with pics of the Bamboo/silk scarf I asked you about (the last project of the table loom)
Thank you Jane, for making weaving so accessible and wonderful.
I have a very successful and stressful career, and weavingt brought balance and joy into my life.
