well I watched some you tube videos and saw some cool looms!!  this of course only made me want a loom even more!  but I saw several different ones. 
the ones I liked had pedals that controled the hedles, and seemed pretty cool, it looked like you could weave some pretty cool designes with these.  what kind of loom is that? 

then there were a couple that seemed pretty much automatic.  it looked like all the operotor was doing was pulling on a lever or something.  that would be cool if you wanted to make lots of woven fabric that was all rather simple I guess.  it was hard to tell if it could do designs or not.  it was rather large, and looked expensive!  but I'm also curious about what kind of loom this was cuz it was just cool! 

anyone know where I could find these types of looms, and maybe even lear more about them?
thanks!

There are so many, many types of heddle looms, Mooshie,

rigid heddle
table looms
table looms that have a stand
jack-type looms
countermarch looms
computerized dooby looms

single heddle,
double heddle
4 harness
8 harness
16 harness

I started with a simple cardboard loom, added a frame loom, a couple rigid heddle looms, a table 4-harness loom and have a floor 4-harness loom (still not set up yet).

They multiplied faster than the wheels!
