…are breaking out all over the studio. I have a second back beam on the Delta,
where weaving is now underway. This fabric will be turned into cushion covers.
It’s a two-treadle operation, so yes, there have been a few errors. I think I am settling in to it, though (famous last words).
I just have one beam on the Megado so have to improvise a second.
The sloping back beam can be a bit of a pain when you want to clamp things to it, but the ‘angel wings’ are doing a good job of supporting my pseudo-beam (which consists of a couple of broken shafts) and I do like the way the excess warp can be kept off the floor. I’m ready to start weaving on this one tomorrow.
I like having more than one thing on the go, as it makes life more interesting, but I am a bit disturbed to realise that I currently have active warps on five looms. No wonder I am a bit confused.
