Today was let's put the Newcomb Studio loom together day. My trusty assistant, my son, and I got out the tools and laptop where the pictures I had taken were. Here are the before pictures. This is the living room of my studio where all the parts were gently placed when I got back from Wisconsin.
I have put many looms together over the years. All makes and sizes but this one was a bit different. This one has long ropes and the break release for the warp beam is unusual. When we looked at the pictures we discovered I hadn't taken enough! We plowed ahead. We took turns saying, I think this goes this way and no I think it goes this way. You should have seen us! We giggled and laughed our way through this! In the middle of all this my son's girl friend texted and wanted to know what he was up to. When he told her she wanted to come and help! I will have to remember this the next time I put a loom together.
Here it is, all back together. I still have to go back and tighten all the nuts and adjust the harnesses. I moved out the love seat to get it in the living room so now I will have to decide where to put it. Doesn't it look wonderful in that spot?
