Come see this beautiful loom, which shows off your work-in-progress and makes a great addition to your workspace.  We also have smaller models if you prefer something more portable.  To give some time on the loom to try it out, Susan Mehringer will have a free drop-in demo session later this month.  She will also teach a couple of beginner weaving classes.  See our listing of weaving classes for dates and more details!
