new to me Glimåkra Gobelin

For Christmas I received a Glimåkra Gobelin.  It is in very good condition but has no accompanying information.  I'm very interested in learning to use the knobs on the top to tension the warp.  Is anyone familiar with this style of loom?  I'm wondering if there are Swedish tapestry books that might describe their use.  I don't read Swedish but I'm a dogged translator.

Hi Cynthia, I don't own one of these tapestry looms and I can't help you with it's setup. I just wanted to congratulate you on your beautiful Christmas gift! Laughing

 

I have admired these looms for a long time. Enjoy her and be sure to let us know how you are getting along. Would love to see what you make on her. Smile
