My new home will be inspected by the State of Ohio next Wednesday, June 5th. I know it passed Mr. Dan, the Maintenance Man's inspection, and Ohio will issue a blue check, too.
The next moving date Joe, the Moving Man, has available is June 13th. Or, in two weeks I am outta here. Theresa says I can have keys as soon as I sign the lease, after Ohio gives me a pass. So, I can load up pictures and such stuff and get them moved.
How do I move a loom? You're asking the person who has moved many a loom. The biggest key to a successful move is to have the warp off, gone, done, as is the current warp on this loom. The only other step is to secure all moving parts.
Ready for two guys to pick it up and start walking. This loom is made to collapse. It's a plus for transporting and a negative for using. The loom is not overly sturdy; I couldn't beat a rag rug on this loom. I doubt I could get a shuttle of weft through its shedd. It does weave decent fabric, though fifteen yards taxes the take up beam and the brake.
The entire studio is here; boxed and ready to be carried off.
Kitchen cupboards and drawers are empty and packed, save enough china and cutlery to last two weeks.
The boxes have accumulated around the furniture; I need to clear a path to get furniture out first. I assume that's how it's done.
In the meantime, it just keeps raining on the happy flowers Way down at the end, the iris are starting to bloom.
