Welcome to the Double Harness Group!
Please introduce yourself, and share your drawloom/double harness experience or interest with the group. I'm hoping there will be a number of us, and we can have some interesting discussions, share information, sources, etc. ~Jan
Hi, 27 years ago I was able to weave for a few hours on a single unit drawloom and on a loom with an opphamta attachment. I was hooked! I bought a used single unit drawloom, brought it home, assembled it, and wove for a short time. Over years of moves, raising children, and homeschooling, the drawloom was put away. It is now in my studio, and I am working on getting the loom up and running again. Three years ago or so, I also bought a used 20 shaft oppphamta attachment which I'll be adding to my countermarche loom later this year. I'm looking forward to meeting other weavers interested in drawloom weaving!
Chris B here (from Ca). This week I ordered my shaft drawloom from Joanne at Glimakra USA. It won't be shipped for a couple weeks-- gives me time to get my current project off the loom and jacks shipped for needed alterations. This is a big thing for me! Looking forward to learning from everything.
Isn't Weavoltion great?
OK, today I am definitely having a hard time with my typing. And I think I'll be able to figure out DH weaving!! Ha!
I meant to say -- learning from everyone-- and isn't Weavolution great!
Hi. I am in the process...slow and painful process of trying to convert my Toika to a drawloom. I'm not sure that I'll be able to, but I'm hoping. I probably have no business dipping into such an advanced form of weaving given that I've only been weaving for roughly 3 and half years, but I'm just absolutely in love with the fabrics and design possibilities.
I hope that we're able to discuss these possibilities in more depth through this group. I'm so excited that you put this together!
