I have 4 floor looms in my garage studio. We used to have a garage. We really don't need one. Our winters aren't that bad here, so we closed it in and made it part of my studio! Right now there are 4 floor looms there. I've got my new ashford table loom in there as well, but it's still in the box!
All 4 looms have warps on them right now. Of course my baby wolf has the scarves that have been on there for months. They're done, ready to come off. I wove the last bit last week! I don't have another warp wound for it so they're just waiting for a new warp to take their place!
My questions are: Anyone having luck winding a warp on a sectional beam without doing it the traditional way of a section at a time? I like winding my warps and then putting them on back to front.
Second question: Anyone seen or added a second beam to a Nilus LeClerc? Seems like alot of weight for that poor back section! I have all the parts needed to do it, just need to drill a couple of holes and add the brake system...
We're already using our air conditioning since it's getting warm here during the day. Yesterday afternoon we were outside working on clearing the deck to get ready to bring our plants out from the greenhouse that we winter through. I know, we're a bit behind but it's been a hectic few months. DH got happy with the clipper as he was cutting vines that grow around the deck. He went over to the air conditioner unit to clip some vines that were getting too close. He thought he was clipping vine. He cut the power cord to the unit......for the main level and basement!! Yup, no air conditioning here until we get that fixed! Good thing the basement where my studios are is cooler and I have a fan angled right to where I sit on Nilus!!
I do hear Nilus calling me. Gotta run! Have a good week!
