But to say that is the reason we finally designed and made available the shedding device would be patently untrue. We blame the LaniLoom shedding device on two wonderful people: Mac and Sue Murry. They very sweetly asked us if we could produce a shedding device for the LaniLoom. Maybe it was the way they asked: in a long and beautiful email stating the reasons why such a device would greatly improve the quality of their lives and their weaving. Or maybe just because they are such great people and although my first instinct was to say: No, No the LaniLoom is supposed to be like every other bead weaving loom (in a way) and besides because it has just one leg it couldn't possibly work with a shedding device. Or could it?
By the time I had formed my answer in an email I had already written to manufacturing and asked if they could make me a prototype. Sure, they could. A few days later I had it. And now you can have it too.
I didn't think the LaniLoom would look cool with a shedding device but boy does she look cool!
Moral of the story: always listen to those brilliant customers because often they know better than I do. Mac and Sue were also wondering if we could make a loom between the sizes of the 22 and the 32 inch loom. We are thinking about that now too: a 28 inch loom anyone? Maybe a limited run of 20?
Now for the glorious pictures of the LaniLoom and her new get-up.
