Loomapalooza - a great success

The September 2014 meeting of the New York Guild of Handweavers was LOOMAPALOOZA. Members brought in looms of all different types for attendees to see and test. Many many thanks to Carol who brought in her Baby Wolf with a warp we could all play on. Thank you Carol!. Gail brought in an "antique" metal framed beauty that was totally unique. Others on hand, a rigid heddle with 2 reeds, an Inkle, a Mirrix tapestry loom wth TWO shedding devices. There were other table looms, backstrap and tape looms. A loom-tasting, and what a sweet finish! YAY.
