Since I got my 8-shaft loom, I didn't think I would really want anything bigger or fancier than that. I should know myself better by now because that's also what I said about the 4-shaft loom. I now have a new dream loom! This AVL Workshop Dobby Loom is my new wish list item! And, it's ONLY $5,300! It's only 24" across, so it wouldn't take up too much space and it's 24 shafts!!! And it connects to your computer... so cool!! I think I'll start saving my weaving money now, and maybe in about 5-7 years I can afford it!
