It's here!

Yes, my Ashford Rigid Heddle Loom is here!!! *^v^*

Not very impressive at the moment, still living in the box, because now I have to buy the wax polish and paint it (it's a raw wood), and assemble it, of course. I bought two reeds with it - 40 threads/10 cm and 30 threads/10 cm. I've already learnt how to warp this thing and I cannot wait to start weaving! ^^
It's the biggest available - 80 cm wide, because my original intention was to try and make my own linen fabric, and then sew a medieval shirt or dress out of it. Does it sound like fun? To me definitely! *^v^*

Now, the only thing to figure out is where I can keep it in my teene tiny flat... Well...

Happy Wednesday, guys! ^^


  1. Congrats, and good luck with the weaving. We'll be watching closely from over here :)

  2. How exciting! I can't wait to see your weaving.

  3. That's so exciting! I wish I could learn weaving but alas, I don't have the time, money, or space right now. Hopefully some day.
