Another Loom Rescue

For no particular reason we had been looking for a 60″ loom.  Then we found one, but it was far away, near a friend’s home.  They agreed to pick it up for us.  We gave them instruction of what to look for.  They phoned from the site when they were there.  They brought it to us this Easter weekend.  But it was not a 60″ loom; it was a 45″ Leclerq Fanny, which we already have.  That was disappointing since we had asked them to measure it to make sure.  Oh well.  It is in pretty rough shape and will need to be stripped and polished, but the heddles and the reeds are in good shape.  One of the reeds is a 5 count reed which will be good for rugs, so it will become a dedicated rug machine, which is fine.  The refurbishing will take place next winter.  The loom will go into a protected shed and the metal will stay inside.  It was a good price.

Who Has A 45″ Fanny? I Do!!! …and proud of it ;)

On Friday I bought, disassembled, and loaded a 45″ Leclerc Fanny loom into my car…DSC00010

Wire heddles, it is in near-mint condition.  It came with three reeds.  Their asking price was $350.  I gave them an extra $100 because of the reeds and condition and they felt good about that…I told them that I thought that their price was too low.  Just another addition to our production capacity here on the farm…
