I have tried to use them a couple of times, but was unable to figure them out. I finally ran across a picture on some blog that showed these clips in place, and I was relieved to see that it wasn't me, it was that I didn't have a loom that needed these clips!
Well with the arrival of "Sally", I do have a loom that will benefit from these funny little clips. Sally is one of Glimakra's smaller floor looms called "Ideal". She has all the features of the larger Swedish built looms but in a smaller package. She is only 27 inches across from side to side, and 32 inches deep.
One of the things I find very different on these Glimakra looms are these shaft supports, that are to stay in place unless you are weaving. They hang from the top of the loom, from the same bar that the shafts hang from.
We have just gotten back in town from a retreat, so I am looking forward to working out all the kinks on this crazy loom. Wish me luck!
Until next time, Happy Weaving, Tina
