Love my new Cricket
Comments about Schacht Cricket Loom:
It was easy to assemble. Yes, there was a learning curve to warp it and start weaving but the Blick video was a great addition to the included instruction book. Once I had it warped and started weaving, the process to make a scarf was very easy. I'm going to have a lot of fun.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Love this little 10" loom. It is my first weaving loom. I have other fiber equipment....spinning wheel....knitting machines...sewing machines...etc.Was very easy to put together...instructions were great. I watched several You-Tube videos before I received the loom, which really helped me get started. I've already made 2 scarves for Christmas gifts. I have a big Stash of yarn and fibers so everyone is getting scarves.I debated between the 10" and another 15" loom and am happy with the 10". Doesn't take up much space. It came prefinished....I did put some paste wax on it. I bought this for myself for Christmas and am really happy.

Using it for motivation to get back to weaving. Also working on a plan to get kids in the library where I work interested in weaving.I'm doing some basic projects to get ideas for presentations for the kids. If it goes well,I'm going to ask for a loom for the library. Warping is a breeze and projects go quickly. So far I have no complaints.

Good Starter Loom
from Boston, MA
This is my first loom. I had woven on larger, more complicated looms a little bit decades ago, but had never dressed or maintained a loom. This baby is complete for your first weaving adventure, all the tools and materials to get you started. And with a little imagination and research, the possibilities are expansive. This loom is ideal if your storage and workspace are severely limited (I, my spouse, our toddler and two cats live in a condo that's roughly 750 sq ft). I only wish I had the 15" model, but I gotta start somewhere.

I Love this loom!
By weaving fanatic
from Houston, Texas
This loom is small, portable, versatile, comes with all of the supplies you need including starter yarn and, best of all, it is easy to set up. You can warp this loom in one class period and be weaving by the end of the next. My students have fallen in love with it.
Watch this video to get tips on warping and weaving on the Schacht Cricket Loom. You'll see why this loom has become so popular with individuals as well as classrooms.
