Choosing a Loom You Love by Sarah E. Horton

This is a great article that sums up the tension between a rigid heddle loom and a multi shaft floor loom.  I think that there are more considerations, regarding floor space and time constraints, but this does sum up most of the issue.  Rigid heddle looms do have a lot more versatility to them than they appear to at first.  If I’m honest I should spend a lot more time with my rigid heddle loom learning all of the neat tricks it is capable of.  I’ve got to make a lace scarf at some point using some of the techniques available to me.  Maybe that will be one of my next projects!

Happy Weaving!
