Evening Meeting, August 10th.

Everyone worked very hard, and went away from the evening with a fully functional, fully warped-up, scaled-down, warp-weighted loom.  The basic design is loosely based on reconstructed Iron Age looms, and is open to modification.  The beauty of this sort of loom is that it can be adjusted even when the weaving is in progress, and absolute precision is not necessary.  We didn't have quite enough time to add the top and bottom ties to keep the warp in place, but these can be added later.
