I work at a school, and one of the wonderful folks I work with gave me this loom - it used to belong to a family member, and she has no idea how to dress the loom, it doesn't look like any of the looms I used when I took fibers classes as an undergrad, and I don't want to mess the darn thing up!  (and the kids are super-excited to try to use it)  Any thoughts, suggestions, or insight would be greatly appreciated!  MA

oh wow!  It looks like a vertical loom. Strung straight up and down and then woven upright...I saw similar looms in Turkey for rug making.

Maybe this will help?
