Pictured above are a couple of the new rugs woven on the new Collingwood Loom purchased during Convergence 2010 show held in Albuquerque. These looms are famous and much sought after by weavers. They are manufactured here in the USA by Harrisville Looms and are an amazing piece of ingenuity and engineering. They are unique in that they enable the weaver to keep the tension even throughout weaving and can change the designs also by using the same warp. The warp is linen and the weft pure New Zealand wool. The design in blue and white is an original and new design by John. The blue and white design is also reversible; in other words, the underside of the rug is a complete design so that the rug can be used/displayed on either side.
Pictured below, you see a masterpiece in progress.
Beautiful, John!!! The colors are rich! Congratulations on showing in Abiquiu!!
