My new loom!!!

I am so excited about my new loom!!! A friend gave me a heads up that a woman who was a former colonial re-enactor was moving and had to unload a lot of things. Among them was this Structo Artcraft Loom!

It is more of a table loom than a floor loom which pleased me. The pedals are up on the side for changing the warp as you weave. These looms were made in the early 20th century and are all different. Some come in metal and some in wood. They evolved over time but I like this one the best!

What I love is it came already warped and ready to go! This loom is known as "the work horse of looms"! I have been on the search for the manual that goes with the loom. So far I have found it in the Library of Congress in Washington, D.C....road trip maybe???
