My purchase was followed by a surprisingly quick shipping time, perfect packaging, great value, courteous and helpful personnel. I certainly recommend this store. Planning a trip to Spokane to see it in person.
I was a loom snob and thought a rigid heddle was only entry level and not capable of producing anything wonderful. I bought this in the 16" width and a variable dent reed kit to go with it. I am having a ball with my textured yarns and making beautiful scarves. I did not realize it came unfinished and even though I was dying to dive in I took the time to stain and poly mine before assembly. It was not hard to put together-you just have to follow the directions. Warping and weaving is easy too-again, follow directions (watch the Ashford youtube). For highly textured yarns the cardboard warping sticks are not very good - I get the cigar shape on the back beam so I am working on finding the right solution to that and trying dowels for a few of them. (the cardboard flexes) After weaving be sure to wet finish your scarf - any tension issues magically work out in an amazing way. I love this loom and highly recommend it!
