Mirrix Loom Opinion

Hi, just thought I'd add my two cents to the loom debate on Canadian Beaders! Although the Mirrix can be used like any bead loom, the main difference with a Mirrix loom is that it is best used for weaving with a heddle. If you're into tapestries and fiber, then this may be the loom for you. Using the heddles has a steep learning curve - the set up is MUCH more involved than in warping a traditional bead loom. On the plus side, if you have back problems, this loom sits upright. Otherwise, there are tons of wood looms out there that will function just fine for regular bead looming.
