I did it! What a difference 24 hours makes. Yesterday I dismantled my giant Cranbrook loom (pictured below in the chaotic "before" picture) and carried each heavy solid maple piece down to the basement for storage. I cleaned my studio, purged, and rearranged. I put my little Leclerc right next to the window and moved it out of the tiny corner it has been squished into for the last eight months. I have floor space, I have breathing space and I am so excited to work in my studio now! I could even have a dance party in there now if I wanted to.....

the view from my loom's new position. Look at the light - look at the space! A little bit more organizing to do in the studio, but so much better...no more stepping over piles inside a maze of looms.
