For the longest time I have been fascinated by weaving. I did a little bit at art school many years ago and I think for many years harbored some sort of crazy desire to go to a community in somewhere in South America to learn from the experts. On the weekend at the 50’s fair at Rose Seidler House I managed to pick up a Spears Weaving Loom, Size 3, manufactured on the early ’50s – with all pieces accounted for, including pattern booklet and uncut pattern pieces sheets. Instructions in English and French. The patterns show you how to make a tea cozy, knitting bag, needlework bag, tobacco pouch, baby coat & bonnet, shoulder bag, belt, pixie hood, scarf, cushion cover, table mats, dressing table set, egg cozies, serviette rings, sandal-slippers, and bedroom slippers. None of these things I am likely to make but you know never say never I suppose. You can make anything up to 8 feet long. The best thing about all of this was I got it for $15 AUS and have found the same one on other sites for 30 Pounds. Expect more weaving updates to come
