Meet Fanny, my newest loom

Say hello to Fanny.  She’s a Model F Leclerc 4 harness counterbalance loom I found on craigslist in Lincoln, NE that was too good of a deal to pass up.  In 1953 (when she was born) this model was called the Model F but since then they have changed it to the Fanny so that’s the Canadian name for it, not mine.  I think she’ll have another name soon enough.  She is tucked in a corner at the moment and I need to replace some cords and such but overall this loom is in really great shape.  I can’t wait to learn how to use her!

Taking the Inkle Loom class with the PFA really helped me get excited about weaving.  I never thought I would get into it but now I am crazy about weaving and want to learn everything I can about it.  =)

    It is an infectious hobby/craft. Anyone who is excited about it is OK in my book.

  2. Oh dear … Another has entered our fold! I hope you have as much fun learning to weave as I did! (it was also a lesson in humility!). Happy weaving!
