Schacht Tapestry Looms
Tapestry weaving is considered by many to be the most personal of all weaving. Among the simplest of looms, the tapestry loom holds a continuous warp under tension, allowing the weaver to see all of the warp at once. Sheds are formed using heddle bars and string heddles. While only two heddle bars are needed for traditional tapestry weaving, four heddle bars are provided so that beginning weavers can also experiment with 4-shaft pattern weaving.
To keep the warp tension even throughout your weaving, this tapestry loom has a tension beam with thumbscrews on the end which allow for easy adjustment. Available in 18″ and 25″ weaving widths, the continuous warping system allows a 60″ long warp to be put directly on the loom without using any other warping tools.
Designed for use with our portable tapestry looms, this stand inexpensively answers the question of how to hold the loom upright on the table top or the floor while weaving. The adjustable side arms let you vary the angle, and may be folded up for storage.
Note that the picture of the loom includes the optional A-frame stand and is sold separately.
Make your weaving easy and comfortable with the optional trestle stand! Designed to work with both Flip and Tapestry Looms, you can quickly adjust the angle of the loom for maximum comfort. When the loom is in the horizontal position, it is at just the right height for use with a standard chair. Shown in the picture on the Flip Loom.
