susan is a new Saori loom owner

Susan came to saori santa cruz in late November for an introductory class fell in love with saori weaving, went home and continued to produce a lovely saori scarf, and wall hanging on her ridged heddle loom but she so loved the ease of use of the saori she used in the studio during her class that she ordered a saori 60 loom and  a extra inside set {so that she can have more than one weaving project going at a time with the same loom}. susan has shoulder injuries and the ease of use of the design of the looms makes weaving so fun and non painful to joints.
This week she came to pick up her new loom and  to get warping and dressing her loom instructions. The color of yarns she chose from the studio shelves for her new piece are amazing.
she arrived wearing another of her hand spun hand knit, or crocheted pieces. This time a lovely crocheted vest out of the fiber she hand spun. I will have to wait and hope she sends me photos of her finished weaving, the warp looks so yummy.

Susan sent me this sweet note
"Thanks again for everything—it was great!  Your studio was a little island of peace for me this week—so appreciated….."

the Saori warping frame  design allows one to warp up to 5 individual yarns at a time just using your thumb to make the cross fast , easy and fun.

the saori threading holder so you can sley the reed and thread the heddles off the loom comfortably and take them to the loom saving back strain

lovely color choices susan!
