I am new here and am getting back into weaving. I used to have a barn loom only. I am hoping to find something new that is the most similar to a barn loom. I am so happy about this! I am looking at buying a Glimakra standard counterbalance loom and am hoping someone can answer some questions I have about it from a weaver's standpoint. Is the tie up difficult for an older person? I am 53 and very good with getting down on the floor and back up but I plan to weave for many years to come.
I used to be able to sit right in front of the heddles to thread and want to know how is it you position yourself to thresd the heddles on the Glimakra?
