Golden Stars


Red and gold tencel ladies shawl I just finished.  Love working with tencel, is is easy to warp, weave and then to make it even better if finishes like a dream.

Back to my looms.

Happy Weaving!

A Swedish Weaving Goddess



After 14 hours of windshield time this past weekend my dream loom is home and sitting in my studio.   She is a  47" 10 shaft/12 treadle Glimakra Standard Countermarch and I am over the moon with happiness.


You will note that she doesn't have her heddles mounted yet, that project will be completed over the next few days and then it will be time for her maiden voyage.

Her name is Sunna.  Sunna is a Swedish weaving goddess in mythology.  Who knew I would fall so hard for a big blonde Swedish girl?  

Lessons learned - dreams to do come true .....  and  .... never ever ever sell a loom you really love.


Back to my looms.

Happy Weaving!
