Here is a photo of my loom room, the front bedroom of my small-but-adequate-for-one-person-with-a-lot-of-stuff house. Do you see room for an AVL in there? I must confess that the Harrisville on the left and the table loom closest to the camera have moved out with Mom, but the photo doesn't show the 7 foot tall Navajo style-loom on the left, or the 36 inch Nilus Artisat behind the table loom. And you might notice the 4 shafts I removed from the Colonial, leaning against the wall, because the 8 shafts are too much for me to deal with right now.
I have the foolish hope that one of these days, my job will settle down and I will no longer need to work 12 hours a day to get done, enabling me to weave more, be less tired and able to scale large looms in a single bound. Besides, who gets an AVL for free? The back bedroom will be re-arranged, then. My guests will have to set up the aero bed in the living room, the desk will move over, I'll lose my sewing area, but I will welcome the AVL into my house and one day, learn how to use it! Wish me courage!
p.s. LouAnn, Leo is in the window!
