GEEK on so many levels

I saw that Star217 had a 10" Beka and looked it up.  It's inexpensive, so that's what draws me to it.  Then I saw Beka has a 24" loom that is only about $130.  Tempting! Can any of you Beka-owners add your thoughts? 

I'm thinking that it would be better to see if I will stick with weaving before spending a ton of money on a bigger fancier loom.

(I found this site http://www.woolery.com/Pages/rigidheddle.html#beka)

Thanks!

I used my 10" to learn to weave and to see if it was something that I would like to do. Once I knew how much I lovd it I upgraded to a larger more expensive loom. I would actually reccomend getting the larger loom the 10" Beka is very bare bones and learning to weave and warp on it is far more difficult the then larger loom out there.

Thanks for replying!
I'm sure that I'll go with the 24" Beka and not the 10".  24" just seems like it has so much more possibility, you know?

I had to convince the family that the loom wouldn't take up a lot of space.  What with the drum carder and wheel + fiber I have started to taken over the living room.  Grin

You haven't taken over the living room until you start moving in the angora rabbit cages.

Believe me, I've tried!  My brother has a bunny allergy (yes, allergic to the cutest, fluffiest animals ever), so no angoras [yet].   Grin
