Welcome to dickblick
The Schacht Portable Tapestry Loom is ideal for introducing students to the ancient craft of tapestry.
It provides four heddle bars so beginning weavers can experiment with four-shaft pattern weaving. Sheds are formed using heddle bars and string heddles.
To keep warp tension even, it has a tension beam with thumbscrews on the end for easy adjustment. Continuous warping allows a 60" long warp to be put directly on the loom without other warping tools. The loom has a 25" weaving width.
Optional A-Frame Stand
This adjustable stand allows for a variety of working angles.
It adjusts to a variety of working angles, from horizontal to nearly vertical.

Comments about Schacht Portable Tapestry Loom:
I love the quality of the construction and the simplicity of use. I am a beginner but I did a lot of research before purchasing, and this loom has the versatility I hoped for. The 25" width and the possibility to weave a tapestry up to 60" long was one attraction and it has a good tension adjustment system. I also didn't want to have to buy numerous after market parts so I like that one makes their own (reusable) string heddles giving great control over desired epi. Also the loom has the option of 4 sheds, adding more versatility should I want to experiment with other types of weaving. All in all I have been very happy with this purchase.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Well made beautiful loom!

I am so excited to use this loom! As a student, it is perfect for me. Easily fits under my dorm bed.
What a great loom!
from Danville, IN
I cannot say how much I am enjoying weaving my tapestry on this loom. I told my husband that sometimes I feel almost guilty being able to have so much fun. I love it! Love it! Love it! When we have more room and more money, I'd love to purchase the Table Loom.
Perfect for my loom!

Easy to adjust for comfortable weaving. Wouldn't want to weave without it now. Excellent service and price from Blick.

Tapestry loom & stand.
By crazy about weaving
Perfect for a beginner weaver and still meets the needs of an experienced weaver. I wish it had pins or grooves to space the warp. It's easy to take when we go on road trips. I recommend it, you'll love it
