Have enjoyed working with this loom - is a very sturdy and comfortable loom to use. I have two floor looms - this feels and works quite differently, but makes lovely cloth as well as the floor looms. Ashford could clarify a couple points in their instructions - to tie the warp onto the cloth beam properly, you need engage the locks that put the warp beam up in the air a few inches - took me a while to figure that one out. Taking the brake off also takes a little work - rotate the handle or push the arm off the wheel. But, every loom has its quirks and this one is doing a nice job for experiments and short runs of weaving! Would recommend this to anyone. I love being able to fold and carry it / the bag that comes with it is a nice one. So far haven't gotten the stand - am using this either on a card table , or in my lap against the table (there is a notch to help with that).
Less than a week I received my loom and stand. WOW. Can’t wait to get started
Great little travel loom!
It took me a long time to decide on a loom. Then I found Gist, Emma is very helpful. My loom is beautiful and well made. Can't wait to get started.
