Old looms

Old looms

May 27, 2010

I have just come back from Japan. During my stay I was given seven used looms by an old lady, Fusako.

My friend Hiroshi who studied weaving in Niigata, helped me to bring them to my house.

We were told there would be “a couple” of looms to pick up by the Fusako’s relative.

Hiroshi and I were shocked to find seven looms, big and small, spread out all over Fusako’s front yard. She gave me all the equipment and a lot of fabric strips.

I really did not expect to get the old loom…… I wonder if I can deal with this one…..
