So, yesterday, my friend Dave Rose and I went to Indiana and back to pick up a larger loom. Five and a half hours each way. Erk! But the company (and his driving) was great.
We got to Crown Point after 1:00 pm EST. And we had a clue some things may not go as planned. One: Dave had a Toyota, not a Chevy Suburban like my husband said and two the loom was larger than what LeClerc said it was on their web site. Square peg, round hole.
The whole loom had to be disassembled. Now, I will say that the LeClerc loom is a work of art with craftsmanship that is almost unheard of in this century. The joins are not made to come apart. Ever. It took three people that take apart the loom which was bigger than a small house. The heat got to my head and I did not remember to take pictures during the disassembly process despite having a camera.
It eventually fit in the car with minimal human injury. By some miracle, I was able to reassemble the loom this morning with no leftover or missing pieces!
So, here it is with my Schacht Baby Wolf for comparison:
