I've waited a long time (15 years) to get an eight shaft loom. When I first saw the Mighty Wolf loom from Schacht I knew it was the one I wanted. I also wanted to support a local business and purchased it through Gist Yarn. Communication was great even through the Covid year! The transaction was smooth and the delivery had its challenges (due to FedEx not Gist or Schacht) however we managed to get it all solved. Be aware if you purchase a loom from Schacht it is delivered through FedEx and requires a special home delivery with a truck that has a lift gate. In NH, it needed to be scheduled with FedEx even though they never contacted me. All that said, I am so happy with my purchase and experience with Gist Yarn. Thank you!!!
