Saori warping frame, threading and cross holder , and wx60 folding loom

How much fun  it is to wind a warp on the Saori warping frame and stand!  easy on the back too.A new student took two half days of classes at Saori Santa Cruz studio SAORI CLASSES  this past week end and fell head over heels in love with saori looms and equipment.

The saori new warping frame is totally height adjustable , it can lean against a wall or you can get the optional stand which allows it to be free standing, and  the stand  folds down quickly for storage with the warping frame/board as well.

 instead of holding the cross or using lease sticks saori has there own invention designed by Kenzo Jo called a" cross holder" cross holder info  you lay your cross into it  and then sley your reed for a front to back loom dressing.

 As easy as turning a door handle you set  the threading holder up , insert your harnesses and start threading . THREADING HOLDER INFO
Notice you  are away from the loom in a ergonomic position  any table or set up  that you are comfortable with.
 Harnesses and reed threaded.... now you simply carry them togehter over to the loom and hook  them up  easily  now time to beam on.

 Beaming  the warp on with the Saori wood (wx60) folding floor loom. the end of the first half day.

Second day my student starts her weaving, learns to wind bobbins 
  and she is very happy with the quietness and ease of the Saori looms and the built in bobbin winder that come on every loom..WX60 LOOM INFO
 A beautiful gauzy weave. using colors of yarns she choose form the hundreds of cones of yarns  on the studio shelves.

 Her beautiful scarf is not done but she will finish it at home .A new saori loom followed her to her car  There is another unique feature  only on  saori looms called "the inside set" where you can remove your weaving with out re threading and put it on again when ever you want.! I can not wait to see it peggy's finished scarf , I love the colors she chose.
