As I write this I can hear dolphins breathing in the water just outside our boat. We are living on our new (to us) 37 foot sailboat. To go along with the new boat I got a new loom. I’m trying out a rigid heddle loom. I have never used one before, and after doing some research on the available models, I chose the Emilia, which is made by Glimakra. I’m quite happy with it and finding that it is very easy to use in the small confined space of a sailboat. So far I have made a few scarves and some dishtowels and I have ordered the second heddle kit to expand my weaving possibilities on it. After weaving on an 8 shaft loom for the last few years, the simplicity of a rigid heddle loom is refreshing.
