I weave on Swedish Glimakra looms including a 48″ wide 10 shaft/12 treadle countermarche loom, a 44″ wide 10 shaft/10 treadle countermarche with single unit drawloom attachment and long extension, a 60″ wide 2 shaft Regina tapestry loom, an upright “Sara” tapestry loom, a band loom, and an 8 shaft Victoria table loom.

After purchasing weaving and related fiber arts books, as well as having subscriptions to weaving publications, I have an extensive reference library at my fingertips.  (Not all is shown in this photo!)
