New look to my "craft" room

Beka RL 32 inches

I got a new to me loom recently and have been very busy cleaning and rearranging my "craft" room so I have room to work on her. I am really enjoying my rigid heddle looms. The 24" Ashford rigid heddle has a sampler on it that I have been trying various pick up stick and weaver manipulated patterns on.
This new loom is a 32" Beka RL. It is actually about 30 years old and is a model that is no longer made. This beauty came with 2 sets of sides one that is shorter and will only hold one back beam the second set is longer and holds double back beams. It also came with multiple heddles so I can now explore the options those give me. While cleaning and rearranging have been a lot of work it will be well worth it once I get this beauty warped up and weaving on it.
