I Got An Ashford Loom!

I got an Ashford 24″ Rigid Heddle Loom, and yes, it’s amazing!

I’ve always been interested in looms. Ever since I was a little kid in boy scouts, I can remember going to an old farm house that had a giant floor loom, and being amazed by it. Now that I’m a 20-something, I’m even more astounded by them! I started out with this Ashford 24″, and I can already see myself investing in a floor loom… One of these days!

I’ve been weaving this scarf, and I just love it! It actually goes by rather quickly. I’m almost done with it already. I used all sorts of funky yarn. I even made some from strips of quilting fabric, and some from t-shirts, and old hats. It’s quite the textured hot mess you assume it would be, but I love it! I’m so excited to finish it off, and start work on my next project… A Rug!

    I started that above reply and I guess I hit the wrong button. Where did you purchase it from?

    I went on a one day course with rigid heddle weaving and became hooked. My birthday pressie was a 24 inch Ashford rigid heddle also. Just uggraded to add a double heddle which I found makes a big difference in terms of easing a single heddle in to the neutral position as it doesn’t have to go over the top of the block. Hope that makes sense. Look forward to see some more creations from you.
