Draper Model D Loom

We purchased this fully functioning Draper Model D power loom on Sunday, March 27, from this couple who used it in their business near Lancaster, PA, USA…


We broke it down into the castle and base…



We loaded it on Monday March 28 and started our 2,200 mile trip home at 2 p.m..  We arrived home on Wednesday, March 30, at 5 p.m., driving straight through.  It was a 51 hour drive home…


As much as we are pleased with the purchase of our power loom, handweaving is still most important to us.  This blog is reserved for hand weaving.  You may follow our power loom weaving at: https://drapermodeld.wordpress.com.
