I have been weaving for years. This is a photo 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.
SAMPLES OF SOME OF MY LOOMS
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.
