Metal 8" Structo Loom!




This 8" Structo loom was my birthday present, found in an antique shop locally. It was very grubby when I got it and I had little hope for the warp that was on it. The warp threads that had been threaded through the heddles was rotten.

Luckily the warp on the spool was still strong and thanks to the All_Things_Structo yahoogroup, I found Mary Meigs Atwaters pattern drafts in the files section and immediately set to work warping the Whig Rose/Lover’s Knot pattern. The weaving goes very quickly. Having a wonderful time especially since it came with its sectional warp spools with a fair amount of warp on them!

Good buy! I bought one quite a few years ago at a flea market for $10 and sold it a couple years later for $20.
