Greetings from Yuma

I just joined Weavo today and started adding groups like mad.  Imagine to my surprise that there was a group for Arizona weavers in here.

I intended to introduce myself so I will do so,

My name is Jason and I live in Yuma.  I started weaving on a 4 shaft loom sold by Sears probably about 60+ years ago.  I just within the past three months go a new to me loom.  It is a 4 shaft counterbalance made in Sweden about 35+ years or so ago as the original owner told me.  Within this year I plan to expand this loom into a 10 Shaft Countermarche loom.

My loom

Have a wonderful day,

Love your new loom.  Is it a Glimakra?  I just discovered that one can add harnesses to those big looms.  Who knew?  Have you posted any photos yet?

I am not sure if this is a Glimakra.  The original owner purchased the loom 35+ years ago in sweden.  Most Swedish made looms are similar in design.  I plan to add 6 more shafts to the loom and a countermarche mech.

I have not yet finished any projects on this loom.  But if you like you can see some of my other finished projects on my etsy store.

Have a great day!
