I bought this to use while learning the basics and finding out whether I want to invest more. I love it! Very good learning tool. It let’s me do very basic stuff and it let’s me branch out and learn more. Top quality. I’m glad I bought the deluxe pack - it has what i needed to weave many different projects.
I have a larger size rigid heddle, which I also love but sometimes I just want to work with something smaller. This fits the bill! I can still weave a variety of items and all the ‘goodies’ that come with the starter pack are awesome. As always customer service is the best!!
I want to thank you for your help in deciding which loom to buy. Your website has so many valuable articles and you have been responsive to my questions. Your website is the first place those considering to take up weaving should visit.
I’ve always wanted to learn weaving so after an intto class I decided I wanted to buy my own loom. I’m not sure how I got to the GIST site but I loved their info on how to choose a loom and I am so glad I chose the Ashford Complete kit. I love you get 3 heddles and those alone make it worth it. Easy to put together and instructions are clear. Is very well made and simply beautiful to look at. Am saving for the stand next. I’m still on my first project but this is something I’ll use for years. Also for it to ship from New Zealand with no freight charges for me made me a GIST customer for life.
I am having a ball with the Ashford 24" Rigid Heddle Weaving Starter Pack.
I have only had it for a short time and I am already on my second project.
I am a beginner and I am having no trouble figuring it out.
I love how you get everything you need to start weaving (except the thread). PLUS you even get three different sizes of heddles in the starter pack.
That alone is a very good deal.
It was not hard to assemble and the quality is extremely nice.
I feel that I have made a very good investment.
I believe I will be enjoying this loom years from now.
