Season 1 Episode 8 - A Few Things About Looms
In this episode we are going to take a peek at the 3 main types of looms in popular use at the moment. The Jack Loom, The Counter-Balance Loom and the Counter-Marche loom. We use all three of them on our studio. As weavers, it is very important that we understand how our equipment works so we can troubleshoot and maintain our instrument.
These 3 looms are very different from each other and their differences should be understood by all weavers but especially new weavers who might be trying to make a choice in regards to the new family member that is going to take up a chunk of space in their home.
We end this episode with a wee look at the Jane Loom….my favourite table loom, wink, wink cause she has my name 🙂
