I have been weaving for years. Here are three photos of my 16 harness- 60” width computerized Toika loom. I can no longer crawl under a loom to tie up the foot treadles so I purchased this loom which just works with a sewing machine pedal and a laptop computer. I love it.
This Medico Le Clerc loom has a weaving width of 22” and has 8 harnesses on it.
I had threaded my Toika Loom and had started to weave
on it. My son and daughter-in-law, Bracha, came for a visit.
My son, B.J., sat at my loom for the first time and wove, and
wove and wove. The scarf now belongs to him or maybe his
wife. If he didn’t say he wanted it I would have cut it up and
made clothes for another doll.
This is a photo of Bracha wearing the scarf.
This is a closeup of Bracha wearing the scarf.
The pattern for this pink and tan
color and weave scarf comes
from ”A Weaver’s Book of 8
Shaft Patterns”, Edited by Carol
Strickler, pattern number 67.
This is another weave on my Toika loom.
On my 8 harness – 15” width Le Clerc Voyager loom I am weaving a design with bears, pine trees and hearts. This will become clothing for a doll.
I am weaving an overshot weave on my 15” width 4 harness Le Clerc Dorothy loom.
