Hi Everyone

I got the call from the senior center that it was my turn to learn how to
use zoom. This past afternoon was first lesson.

It is a government program for seniors. It is not the normal computer
classes held at the senior center. We are loaned an Apple 10 tablet; A hot
spot is from a library to be renewed like a book every 3 weeks. a great
easy to read instruction book. With great pictures as well and big print.
One on one with teacher.

We got started at 1:00 and 45 min later I was Zooming with the teacher. I
can say this There is not a lot to Zooming. If I can learn it anyone can.
All that has to be done is type in an ID number and a pass word. I am not
to this point yet I just wanted to see how zoom worked today.

From the senior center I went to the library and got the hot spot thing.

I got home and I figured out how to connect my WI-FI and I am not sure how
to connect the hot spot I will have help with that. Later tonight. Now all
I have to do is practice with the tablet for this week and the end of next
week is second class.

I will be able to learn how to post pictures of my weaving. A weaving work
shop on zoom might be fun.

Here is a good article on Honeysuckle at Ralph’s Digital Archive.

Joe,

I've been weaving for a while now (nearly 30 years) and just realized I don't hear the term "honeysuckle" hardly at all anymore.

Has it been replaced by a different term?

There is an article in The Weaver by Berta Frey, "How many ways to Weave Honeysuckle?" that I think you can find online (a pdf) if you haven't already discoved it.

Re: AVL 16 shaft loom shafts dropping

Carole Elliott
 

Thanks for all of the suggestions. When I tightened the bolts on the dobby arm with pliers, the shafts stopped dropping. All is well now.

I have had this problem in the past. I am not sure which Dobby you have. The problem with mine was solved by adjusting the dobby box on the loom.

I am coming into this discussion late, and I have an older dobby box, so forgive me if this suggestion is irrelevant. When shafts drop on my loom, very often the dobby box itself needs to be slightly repositioned.  Checking the arm is also important.

Good luck,

Check to make sure the dobby bar is absolutely level.  Mine seems to slip over time, no matter how much I tighten the bolt and nut.

HI Darlene,

I have had experience getting looms across the border and there are two things of which to be aware.

1. Duty. Customs tried to charge duty on a used AVL we were bringing back to Canada in my car. (It was cozy as I snuggled up to the beater which extended from the windscreen to the tailgate.)  There is a rule about dobby looms being exempted from duty because a comparable product is not made in Canada. Worth checking out. 

2. Broker's charges. From experience, I know that UPS has charged me a significant amount in brokerage fees to bring things across the border. I would as all potential cartage/shipping companies about these fees.

Best of luck with the loom. I hope it all works out.

Hi Everyone & Darlene 

You found a perfect loom, that is great. 

It is an older AVL do you have the loom number? 

Send Bob K. the owner of AVL an E-mail to be sure you will be able to buy any replacement parts you might need over time, as well as things you might like to add to the loom in the future. 

Ask Bob K in the E-mail for advice how to go about shipping the loom. After all, AVL ships loom all over the world. 

Bob K has always been more then helpful to me.

If you find a moving company already engaged, then a partial load , piggy backing on someone else’s move, is often cheaper.  Timing is the issue.  If you are willing to wait, this might work out.

You might want to check first at home to see if any moving companies have connections with a company in Washington.  They might also be able to facilitate cross border customs issues.
