Purchased through Loom N Essence and sold at McGowan House Artisans. When McGowan House Artisans closed these table top looms were among the brand new looms remaining. Although they have never been used, the warranty from Schacht has timed out. It's your chance to purchase a brand new, never used loom for an exceptional price. For beginning weavers, owner will walk you thru the paces of warping the loom, weaving a sampler and planning a project.
This loom is the perfect size to take to workshops, weaving demonstrations, plus the fun of weaving projects not to exceed 15inches in width. That leaves your imagination open for scarfs, tea towels, table runners, etc.

From the Schacht website:
Our table looms are expertly crafted of the finest hard maple and built for maximum structural stability. Many schools use our table looms and find they weather well after many years of heavy use.
We use fine-toothed nylon gears on both the warp and cloth beams, which allow precise tension control. Our front-mounted levers make shaft selection easy to reach with either hand. Front-mounted levers also make it easy to see at a glance which shafts are raised.
Schacht table looms are available in three weaving widths — 15″, 20″, and 25″ — with four or eight shafts. The looms come with a stainless steel reed in your choice of 6, 8, 10, 12, or 15 dents. Inserted eye heddles, two apron rods, and three lease sticks are also included. A double back beam is available for all table loom width.
I just got back from visiting our Nation's Capital. While on a truly amazing Monument Tour I first heard the tale of "Kilroy Was Here" and snapped this photo of the etching of the legendary "Kilroy" Living in Iowa we hear so much about the Freedom Flights. Our WWII Vets are flown to Washington DC for the day in gratitude for their service to our Country and given the royal treatment they so well deserve. According to our tour guide, out of all the wonderful monuments that grace our Nation's Capital, this tiny little etching, tucked somewhere in the shadows of the spectacular WW II Monument is the most requested sites by Veteran's to view. Can you just imagine what this image means to them?
The Legends of "Kilroy Was Here"
There was one person who led or participated in every combat, training or occupation operation during WWII and the Korean War. This person could always be depended on. GI's began to consider him the "super GI." He was one who always got there first or who was always there when they left. I am, of course, referring to Kilroy Was Here. Somehow, this simple graffiti captured the imagination of GI's everywhere they went. The scribbled cartoon face and words showed up everywhere - worldwide. Stories (some even true) abound.
