What's most important in a loom for young weavers is that it ensures success. Schacht designed this simple frame loom to do just that. It has a 15" weaving width, a built-in stand for upright use on the floor or a table top, plus durable, 6 per inch, plastic warp spacers for uniform warping. Students of all ages will find it easy to use. Included with each loom are two pick-up sticks, a weaving needle, and simple warping and weaving instructions. The Schacht School Loom is made of hard maple and unfinished.
Tapestry weaving is considered by many to be the most personal of all weaving. Among the simplest of looms, the Schacht 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, Schacht provides four heddle bars so that beginning weavers can also experiment with 4-shaft pattern weaving.
To keep the warp tension even throughout your weaving, teh Schacht Tapestry loom has a tension beam with thumbscrews on the end which allow for easy adjustment. Available in 18" and 25" weaving widths. The Schcht continuous warping system allows a 60" long warp to be put directly on the loom without using any other warping tools. Shown with optional stand.

Table looms are great for classroom use, workshops, sampling, and small projects. They are ideal for learning about four- and eight-shaft pattern weaving, since the direct tie-up through the hand levers allows for infinite experimentation.
