Is this group still active? I live in Maine and am a new weaver. Would love to know who else is out there from Maine!

It would be nice if this group were more active. I'm in mid-coast and weave on AVL & BabyMac. I mostly weave with wool from my sheep.

hi, I'm down in southern Maine. Weaving on my Glimakra, and a couple of Harrisvilles.

Just joined Weavolution.  Fantastically happy to have found this group. I’m in Eastport. Nothing Halloween themed right now. Working on a table runner for a friend in lots of reds. I weave on a Gilmore 32” 8H for now, but thinking of selling. I’m researching countermarch looms. Honing in right now on Toika Liisa and Louet Spring. Any thoughts on these? I have a Louet Jane with stand for when we travel. Plan on stopping by Webs Weaving Room in January to try out a Louet and Toika there. Have decided it is best I test drive before getting serious about any used looms on the market - or perhaps a new one.

<p>I just ordered a Louet Spring for two reasons: &nbsp;1) I have a small house with small bedrooms and a large Oxaback would not easily fit&nbsp;in my home; and 2) I belong to Jane Stanford&#39;s on-line guild and she is a Louet dealer and did a great job of explaining why the Louet loom was a great loom. &nbsp;And it works well if your short! &nbsp;I&#39;d love any feedback from others who own this loom as it is my first countremarch loom.</p>

<p>I&#39;ll be curious to hear how you like the countermarche. I have a small folding 4-harness&nbsp;jack loom (Norwood, RIP) and a larger 4 harness LeClerc Nilus II in pieces in the attic...:(. &nbsp;It has an overhead jack mechanism in the castle I believe. &nbsp; I also have a small rigid heddle, which is what got me back onto my 4 harness looms - so fun and satisfying. I had a counterbalance once upon a time - a true &quot;barn loom&quot; made of hewn logs,&nbsp;but sold it.&nbsp;<br />&nbsp;</p><p>I struggle with the shed on the small jack loom with certain tie ups - I&#39;d be curious if the countermache is a lot better. Just found this site and I&#39;m hoping it&#39;s a bit more active in the future!</p>
