    Design vs Dollars; dollars wins again. The choice between good design and construction versus costs is a challenge for most people who have their eye on the bottom line. Here too someone decided they should cut corners on the construction in order to keep the cost down. If it’s really a choice of a few dollars why not make up the difference in quantity, sell more of them by building in quality. Then this review would have been raving.

    The weaver is still cool for most pre-teens and teens, maybe even younger. Just using it gives you an elementary understanding of weaving and you can’t help but wonder how large textile manufacturers do it on larger scales. But like I started out saying, they cut one of the most critical corners in any design. A single point failure in the ratchet gear mechanism. It doesn’t engage the ratchet completely thus it pops out and doesn’t hold the fabric in place. I’m handy so replacing the gear mechanism is not too difficult but something so simple shouldn’t be the failure of the entire toy. But it is.

    So I bought this for myself in order to make cloth as part of tote bags that I gave a presents. I would consider myself an adult 😛 and I love weaving on this. The tension thing is a little wonky, but I just retighten it as needed. It’s a pain to rethread (which I guess is why they sale refills). The wool yarn is attached to the loom via velcro, which means that you can’t use other fiber types.

    My grand-girls loved this introduction to weaving! However, as an experienced weaver, I have some suggestions for the manufacturer: the warp should be wound more carefully and ‘packed’ with paper to keep the weaving more even. Also, if the center support for the rigid heddle (in its upper position) were 1/4-1/2 inch higher, it would create a better shed. The limited shed-space in the upper position, makes it hard to pass the shuttle from one side to the other. The included yarns produced two beaufiful scarves.
