I can't be the only weaver to have a Structo Artcraft Loom like this one!
I got this lovely old loom back in 1985 or so, spent months cleaning, derusting and refinishing it's poor neglected self. I have woven on it ever since, I love this sweet old loom and, when I saw this group, I thought it might be interesting to find out more about it. So, I looked on the internet to try to learn some history and I can find NOTHING! All I know is it's a Structo Artcraft Floor Loom, it was built in 1921 for the first president of the San Antonio Handweavers Guild in Texas and she woven fabric for her doctor-husband's suits on it. There's a small metal plaque on the front that lists 6 U.S. Patents with other patents pending. Where could I find out more information about it? Upon searching Weavolution and the WWW, I have found the most people are talking about the table-top looms and no one's got information or interest in my big old Structo. I think this is a knowledgeable group and I am hoping that someone has some input about my dear old friend. Thoughts? Please see the attachment for a photo, and thanks so much for your time and consideration.
