NEW LOOM!!!!!!

As of 1:30 pm EST, I am the proud owner of a new (to me) Structo 4 harness table loom. **HAPPY HAPPY DANCE** I'm so excited I can hardly stand it!! Lord knows I prayed on this one, I found it on ebay in the antiques section not in the weaving section and I was the only bidder. For a week I've checked everyday, expecting someone to outbid me, but it didn't happen, I got her for $ 125.64 including the shipping, can you believe it. I was so shocked it took me a full 30 seconds before I realized that I really had won it. Considering that I'd been beaten quite a few time over the last past month. Well good bye birthday cash, hello my little loom.


Isn't she a beauty, well a little rough around the edges but hey, so are diamonds. I just paid for her and they will be shipping to me soon, I can wait. Not that I know what to do when she gets here, but one step at a time. I think I'm in luuuuurve!
Now the fun part getting some kind of manual, instructions etc..
I've already put on hold some books at the library for 4 harness looms so, this should be fun!! I guess I should start hunting down some shuttles and reeds.
What do you guys think??

I just got your comments on my blog and had to say-my sons both work for SW in No FL!! A very good company to work for. I love the fimo clay-it looks hard but is very forgiving-you will see more of it in future posts.

Check out the all_things_structo group on Yahoo. They have the manual, some history, and the original patents in the Files section. You've got a newer structo, and it looks to be in good shape. Congrats! I enjoy mine a lot.
