New Saori loom owner

Debra has been weaving on a ridged heddle loom.  I found out she and her husband were from Ohio originally , my husband and I were Buckeye's too. she home schooled her children, we did too.

She  came to the studio wanting a better weaving experience, classes, loom. What does that mean? well when you know you know. Saori is so much fun and the equipment is so well designed it is a joy to experience.  I felt the same way when I first used a saori loom, I fell in love with it, and the appreciation just continues every time I use it. I have had/owned over 15 looms in my weaving life so I have comparisons for sure  .
She liked the portability of the Saori SX60 folding loom.
We got it out of the box and put it together and were weaving in about an hour.

Debra's new loom all put together, warp tied on and ready for weaving. Thank you Debra , nice to meet you and here about your lovely family too.
can you see the yarn in Debra's braid she inserted? very nice.

 looking very good

 Her original weaving she brought. She wants to continue the theme.

I  think she has  started to weave  a very nice complementary new piece.
"I had so very much fun today" was Debra's response as we loaded her loom in her vehicle  and she was on her way.She will be back with some friends in 2 weeks . I will take photos again and report back on her progress! Very exciting Debra.
