Some Assembly Required

This could be -- interesting.

                        Perhaps even --- Challenging!


My new loom arrived yesterday afternoon. I was warned. Yes I was. I knew it was coming in pieces and would need assembly. Perhaps I was unprepared for the magnitude of this job?

Loom-to-be

This is how far I've gotten so far.

Loom-to-be

Yes, so far I've only unwrapped most of it and identified (most) of the pieces. To be fair I spent all day yesterday, and well into the evening, decluttering, organizing and cleaning my weaving room. I only got around to opening the box this morning. I have a lengthy eye exam scheduled for today so I'm not likely to get the whole loom assembled, let alone operating, until tomorrow, but I'll pick away at it whenever I have a moment.

I hope you will show us a photo of it all together. A weaving room sounds like such a wonderful place to be, to have.

I sure will Joanne. A weaving room is indeed a wonderful place to be -- especially when it is no longer overcrowded with clutter.

Holy Cow! I have never seen a Saori loom in so many pieces. I am so glad mine was fully assembled when I got it.

Yes Gene, be glad, be very, very glad. It was challenging to say the least. There are a few pieces that, despite some very good labeling, can be put in more than one way. If you get it wrong there is a bit of "un-building and re-building" that must be done. Yes, I do know through experience.
