CLEMES AND CLEMES NIDDY NODDY
I love the clemes and clemes niddy noddy because it has a pin to release the the tension to slide down the arm to remove the skein. not a twist pressure fit type .
the noddy she is using is my 48 year old original clemes noddy ! she bought a clemes with a spindle to continuse to spin at home . mine it still solid and strong ! Clemes is still making them the same way and same design!
I got a photo from jessica she is spinning her fiber at home sucess!!
Margery wanted to lean how to weave starting from warping and threading the loom!
first thing choose her yarns!
the SAORI WARPING FRAME AND STAND here.
and Jessica is weaving!
when I learned to weave over 40 years ago it was a 7 hour day for 4 days class . on traditional Jack looms
Jessica learned to wind a warp dress her loom the Saori way . saving leaning over the loom a real back saver! she was weaving on her warp on the Saori loom in about 6 hours!
she went home with her new loom
a photo she sent me of her Saori WX60 LOOM all set up with the
GLIMAKRA LOOM BENCH here at her home.
