I am a CW reenactor and I have seen some of the women having table top weaving looms and I would love to try my hand at it. It looks so intiminating and not sure how it really works. I know there are several looms out on Ebay and wondered which one is a beginner friendly but yet, the weaving loom must be of that time period of 1840's to 1860's. I do not want to break the bank getting one. Also it can be broken down to be transported if possible to pack up in the van. Some do not break down for travel which that is ok. I would love to make a rag loom but I am not going to pay over 50 dollars for the frame. Floor rag rugs, throw rugs, bath rugs and table runners and plaid tartan scarfs are the things I would like to make in different looms. There are several manufactors out there and I want good ones. I do not want anything that is made of plastic. So what do you all recommend?
