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.  =)


Local Fiber Arts Activities

Say hello to the PFA (Potwin Fiber Artisans) if you haven’t already. We have so many pots on the fire it’s hard to know where to start.

  • First thing:  Fiber Arts Classes – we have a big focus on education so we’re already going strong on the classes.  March Class Schedule
  • Second thing: May 4-5 is another Fiber Arts Bazaar. It’s going to be awesome! And again it’ll be at the Potwin Presbyterian Church in Topeka.
  • Third thing: The PFA is going to be at the Topeka Farmer’s Market in downtown Topeka with demonstrations, activities, and local awesomeness to sell.
