A Swede Comes To Stay

Found a lovely 70's era Glimakra Ideal countermarch loom that was looking for a new home.  This afternoon I cleaned and assembled "Swede".  He is a 4 harness, 6 treadle countermarch that fits in to my studio without any trouble.  

Being a used loom Swede was missing a few things and I placed orders for brand new items like - texsolv heddles, an aluminum beam protector, 4 brand new rubber feet, 2 new harness pins and a nice new stainless steel 12 dent reed.  I really need to replace the beam cords with fresh cording, which I plan on doing in the morning.

Here is a front view of Swede with his nice matching bench.   I added my Tibetan Prayer flags which will bring us peace and contentment while we weave together.

So very happy to have finally found a countermarch loom that fits not only me but my studio.  

Life is good.

Happy Weaving!
