LOOM STANDS STARTED! SHOP EXPANDING!

Late yesterday I started the first run of the Carolien Loom Stands! I’m wonderfully excited by this – she was so inspirational to help me design this wonderful tool. I have all of the parts and pieces – and I’m going to town. MANY bases are cut to size and today I begin the shaping. Perhaps the steel will get cut to length this afternoon. I expect to have photos and prices by the end of next week. To those more than 50 who have firm orders, not even knowing the price nor seeing a photo, everyone is going to be so pleased, I promise! Carolien loves hers, and you will too.
On another note of great joy, construction begins this morning on enclosing the pad in front of my shop. I’ll now have about 15′ x 35′ more shop space! There will be two roll up doors – 10′ and 6′ so that I’ll still have a sense of working outside. Simon is doing the work. Pat will be adding more electrical and lighting. Cat and I will paint the interior white for better light. After it’s all complete, I’ll move several pieces of equipment out there so that the woodshop will not be so crowded, along with the existing dust collector. Then, a new much more powerful dust collector will be added to the main shop. Me being even more efficient? Is that even possible? Yep!
This is a fantastic day! Joy to the World!

  1. You are making big changes and plans, such great things that will make your work space a more pleasurable place. You certainly need that with ever adding to what you make for those of us who love your creations. The loom stands will be a super big hit as the word gets out among the tapestry circles and family! Just be sure you and Cat don’t overdo it and take time to enjoy life. De’Andrea~~
