Felicia's Notebook, Taking Back Friday

A Closer Look at Schacht’s Cricket Quartet

Schacht Cricket rigid heddle loom with Quartet 4-shaft loom addition

I am a weaver who first learned how to weave using a 4-shaft table loom. Now, I find myself very often recommending 4-shaft or multishaft looms to people who are interested in learning how to weave. However, I know that there is a huge proportion of weavers who are introduced to the craft of weaving through using a rigid heddle loom. It can be much more accessible, often less expensive, and just easier to start with than a multishaft loom.

Well, on today’s Taking Back Friday vlog, I want to talk about how Schacht has created a new product which provides the best of both worlds. Join me as we take a closer look at Schacht’s Cricket Quartet

I’m really excited to hear what you think about this product, this idea and concept. This is not the same as just getting a table loom, this is converting a rigid heddle loom into a table loom. If you have the Schacht Cricket Quartet, I would love to hear what you think about weaving with it. Let me know in the comments!
