Some things you will want to consider:

  • How much space will I have for my weaving loom?
  • What projects do I want to work on?
  • What is my experience level?

Space is definitely one requirement that needs the most consideration. If you live in a small apartment and your workspace also doubles as a bedroom or living room, a smaller table loom is probably best. If, on the hand, you have a whole room or large work area dedicated to the craft, there are beautiful standing units that require a lot of space, but which will allow you to produce exquisite pieces that would be difficult or impossible on a smaller loom. Since floor weaving looms are more complex and often require many accessories to get the most out of it, they are usually more suited to those with higher experience levels.

If you intend on projects, such as large blankets or rugs, you will have to go with a floor loom, as a table loom would not be able to handle those. Table looms are great for small to medium sized, lightweight projects.

The best bet for beginners and those without much experience is a rigid heddle loom or a table loom. When starting out, you it’s generally best to choose a less complex and smaller weaving project and rigid heddle looms are great for this. Most crafters find that a table loom or rigid heddle is the perfect size for them, and love the convenience of taking their projects with them.

Weaving looms are the most important decision you will make when it comes to equipment for the craft of weaving, so do your homework and explore all of your options.
