Learning to set up a Ridge heddle loom and having fun!


What a nice day! I learned tons about what not to do when setting up this loom. I spent the whole day with my Bestie Peg and we finally set up my Erica Ridge heddle loom. I think we did a pretty good job for 2 people who had no idea of what we were doing. ; )


First third threaded.

23″ threaded now to figure out how to roll it up.


Dany made us a pole that fit into my Grandmother’s quilt clamps so we could wind the cotton.


After a false start here is the loom all wound on.

The loom was my dad’s, I think he would have loved to help us set this up. I had a wonderful day full of smiles, wonderful company, nice quiet moments and filled with friendship. ☺ thanks Peg.
