This is a great loom!! I did backstrap weaving to make our Inuit making belts and now that I have my Glimakra Loom, I weave them in a week to ten days from start to finish. Amazingly fast!!! I had never seen a person weave in person but I bought one anyways, took me two months to make up my mind which one to buy. I went with Glimakra, a Swedish product and am I ever happy with weaving with this loom!! Simple and easy to use, easy to follow directions, all the accessories I needed to wind my warp, tying my warp, and winding on the beam, threading the heddle was so easy using my patterns, and if I mad a mistake at the beginning, easy to fix!! I had to guess how long to make my warps, and my first belt was too long!!! Since I started in March 4th, to date, I have finished four belts!!! Great product.
I've used several brands of RH looms and I find Emilia to be a stand-out loom. Because of the angled back end, the shed is very wide for an RH loom -- I can use a Bluster Bay shuttle easily, which is a real selling point for me. The loom is sturdy and well-designed, making it easy and comfortable to use. Like many RH looms, the reed sometimes pops out of the holder when in the down position, but this is easily fixed by placing the bottom bar of the reed behind the tan plastic locks at that fasten the reed holders to the frame. All in all, a great RH loom and a very good price.
