Gobelin

Hi everyone. My name is Laura and I am new to weaving even though I have had looms for many years with the intent to learn. Many years ago, probably in the mid 90's, I was given a Gobelin loom. The woman who gave it to me had no idea what it was and I did, so she gave it to me. I have used it before and like it. I know these looms are no longer made, but I was wondering more about them like the years they were made, what kind of wood was used, how much they cost new and any other info about them. I did request warping instructions on it and that is the only thing I know about it. My loom has inside measurements of almost 40 inches. Thank you for any information you can give me.

Hi, I also recently bought a Gobelin loom. I was not able to find any warping instructions on it, where did you find yours? I don't have much info to add, but I've been looking for instructions on how to warp the loom for a bit :)

I wrote to Glimakra and they sent me photocopied instructions on how to warp it. I would like to know more about these looms. Good luck with yours.

<p>I recently got this gobelin loom and was only able to download the general instructions about this loom.&nbsp; I&#39;m hoping to find others that have had some experience with it that you can share. It&#39;s very beautiful piece of furniture otherwise.&nbsp;</p>
