  1. Very neat! The picture up close looks 3D!

  2. It's beautiful! Now I have shaft envy again! I'm finally going to have two looms with 8 shafts but that doesn't make the needed 16 shaft loom needed. Can this only be done on 16? I showed and told my DH about your Megado for sale, he laughed and laughed and laughed, I was afraid he'd bust his chest incision open! I guess that means no?!

    1. Hi Debi - I'm glad I was able to make your husband laugh, but please, only tell him so much at a time for his safety! As far as getting this down to an 8 shaft design, I've given it a couple tries in the software but with out success at this time. I'll continue playing and if I succeed - I'll let you know.

  3. Hi What is the make of your end feed shuttle?? It is so sleek looking compared to my LeClerc. Your work is beautiful!

    1. Hi Judith - the end feed shuttle is a Schacht. I like it because it fits just right in my hand. I have both sizes of this brand (12" and 15") but tend to grab the longer one the most.
