For the longest time I have wanted a Rigid Heddle loom, and have researched pretty much what's out there, in the size I want. Needless to say the "big brands" are quite expensive, so it's not something you would buy on a whim. Just by chance I found one during a search, called the Little Quick Weaver "C". It's all handmade in Bloomingdale MI, on a family owned mill. They mill all the material they use for the loom, which consist of a combination of walnut, maple, cherry, oak and ash. The lady of the house has been weaving for many years, and she and her husband decided to make their own. The fact that it's made in the US, a small family business, makes it so much more worth. And it's beautiful craftsmanship. Quality all around. The "C" is an 8 dpi 15" wide and can hold up to 6 or more yards or warp yarn, so you can pretty much make anything on it from scarves to blankets. I just finished unpacking it today, and am so excited to give it a go. It came all warped, so it's just a matter of getting going, when I get a chance. :-) Should be very soon. Does it not look great? If you're into weaving I bet your fingers are itching just looking at it. :-)I have some 100% black lace yarn out of Hercules' fleece that I can't wait to try on it!! All I need now is for each day to be 48hrs, or needing no sleep! :-) Any other weavers out there?
