Today, however, I needed to have it fold - one of the reasons I got this loom. I'm taking it to Kansas with me to demonstrate weaving at the craft fair.
I started by warping and beginning the weaving. I wanted to have it ready to weave on the body of the project, but also I wanted to familiarize myself with the pattern so if I was distracted or pulled away from the loom, I would know right where to start again.
Steps to folding a Leclerc Voyageur
Step 1: loosen the warp to allow for the folding and remove any weights on floating selvedges or previously broken warps.
Step 2: loosen any red screws
Step 4: place the securing bars from the front beam onto the loosened red screw near the top of each side of the castle and tighten down.
Step 7: remove the handles from both the front and back beams and secure the beam with the provided screws.
