The release of tension working with an exceptional designed silent floor loom is a happy experience. The varying of sizes and versatility of these Saori Japanese made loom models from Sakaiselki Sangyo Co LTD fit ages 4 yrs and up different saori loom models are fantastic. The engineered designs to accommodate those in wheel chairs , or with dimished motor skills, to better ergonomic design for more minor physical special neeeds and or daily artistic weaving convienced me years ago to sell my other less responsive non inovative jack action looms.
The ease of the light weight treadles, to the built in bobbin winders and Saori weaving accessories help create a flowing atmosphere of peace and harmony. The weaver and the Saori loom become allies . Time and stress seem to melt and a feeling of calm renewal seems to eminate from each shuttle throw.
Back in the fall last year Mark came and took some Saori classes . Amoung other skills he learned to wind a warp, dress the saori loom, and wanted to get back to weaving after a 30 year absence earlier blog and another mark blog. Then Marks health took a turn and back surgery was needed.Months of healing and physical therapy still on going but this week I saw Mark again back in the studio to finish his scarf. How did he do? GREAT! But then I will let the photos speak ….
