I have a solid oak, 8 harness floor loom for sale This loom is approximately 23 years old and is great for all kinds of projects from scarves, placemats, throws and even rugs. I think it is a Kessenich loom but am not sure. It has 10 treadles and a 46” weaving width and the loom footprint is 58” W X 46”L . It is in working order and was just used last year to make some scarves, but it may need a little TLC and cleaning up. I am including the bench, 3 reeds (6, 8 & 12 epi), sectional warping beam, shuttles, heavy beater rug bar (removable), plus many more supplies. The loom will fold for shipping and storing. Located in Overland Park, Kansas – a suburb of Kansas City, MO. Asking $1000. Pictures of the front of the loom and the back of the loom are available.

Hi, I'm moving to the St Louis metro area (southern Illinois) and am a beginning weaver. A rigid heddle loom seems less intimidating to start with. I've looked at Ebay but many of the listers know nothing about looms, so it's not a good place for a beginner. If anyone has any recommendations about rigid heddle looms or has one for sale, could you contact me by email?
