Wonderful Loom!

I love this loom! I bought the 16 inch weaving width with 8 harnesses. Consider the entire width of the loom - not just the weaving width - when you order one to be sure it will fit in your space. I definitely recommend also getting the floor stand which is available for it. It makes weaving with the loom so much easier and fun. (Stand will add 3-4 inches to the width because of the wonderful and very useful trays on each side of the stand - great for holding the stick shuttles.) The loom arrives in a box and is not assembled. It took me about 12 hours to put it together (I am not particularly mechanically inclined) but the instructions are very good and by the time I was finished I really understood the loom and how it works. Plus I was delighted that I was able to assemble it all my myself! The loom is beautifully designed. The shed is excellent and the levers which raise and lower the harnesses work flawlessly. Both the loom and the stand fold easily so they can be put away when not in use. Because of how the loom is constructed, there is no chase so you need to use stick shuttles and not boat shuttles. Two more suggestions. I ordered extra heddles so I have 65 on each harness instead of just the 40 for each harness which it comes with (which I don't find enough). Also with the texsolv heddles, I color coded all the heddles around the heddle eyes on each harness with colored markers which makes it much easier to thread correctly (eg. all heddle eyes on shaft 1 I colored red, all heddle eyes on shaft 2 I colored orange, etc.- using different colors for each harness. Works great to prevent mistakes when threading. One other thing. The instructions don't say how tight to make the stretchy cords which hold the ****** arm with the read to the castle. I called the company and they said to make the stretchy cords tight enough to pull back the ****** arm with the reed so it is right against the castle. I definitely recommend this loom if you don't have a lot of space but want to weave 8 harness patterns. You won't be sorry. Have fun! I certainly am!

Can I marry my loom?

My new Ashford table loom is exquisite! It's gorgeous, easy to use, and produces excellent fabric! The Ashford tutorial videos for warping, etc on YouTube are indispensable. Additionally, the customer service at Paradise Fibers was fabulous. I'm all the way in Germany and got my loom quickly and easily. Thank you!
