Ashford Rigid Heddle Loom Stand
$ 165.00 USD
I am new to weaving and this loom was recommended by the ladies at Gist Yarn. This is beautifully handcrafted. An artful piece in its own right. It was easy to assemble and easy to work.
I would recommend this Ashford rigid heddle loom to any new weaver!
I had my husband assemble this stand. He told me that everything fit together perfectly and it was well made, very nice quality wood and sturdy. He makes fine furniture in his spare time, and therefore knows a lot about wooden furniture construction. I think anyone could assemble this, as the instructions were clear and easy to follow. I did wax all wood parts with Ashford Wax Polish before assembling. I am very happy with this stand! (I also had my husband assemble my Ashford Rigid Heddle Loom, after I waxed all wood parts, and he had the same comments about construction and quality for that as well).
Makes it easy to weave wherever—easily broken down, light, just right height and angle. Weight the bottom bar and move into place for warping. Now I can weave and listen to a book or Netflix, and it looks great!
I have to say that I am not much of an online shopper but you can’t just walk into a store and pick up a loom stand. I ordered my loom through Gist Yarn and had it in no time. I have ordered other things from Gist and any time I have had a question Sarah has been quick to get me an answer. I love my loom stand and find Ashford equally great to work with.
