      I am responding to ursula from Germany.  She says she weaves on an old Leclerc Artisat and is having trouble getting a good shed.  I have exactly the same problem with the same loom …. I bought it second hand and after cleaning it up and refurbishing started weaving only to find that it is really hard to make a shed.  it is almost like i have to ‘double-clutch”.  Any help, comments?

        Hi, my name is Shelley and I am from Comox, BC on Vancouver Island.   I have been a 3d artist for many years but have done fiber stuff (embroidery, fine crochet etc etc) since a young girl (back when doilies were actually a thing people used!). But clay can only go so far so I have made a jump shift back to the soft stuff.  I love it and feel like I have come home.

        I have taken a beginner weaving class, joined the Woodgatherers Guild and acquired a sweet 24″ Leclerc floor loom.  HUGE learning curve (which I love).   Also have taken up knitting again which is another soft joy.

        Met some nice ladies and just having a blast. I already have learned so much from lesson one.  Looking forward to number two with great anticipation.
