Onto a good thing!
The Mirrix had not been posted yet, so I suggested going to collect it from the affiliated London shop - The Hand Weavers Studio! David handed me my loom, and showed me a 12" with a tapestry in progress. He also introduced me to the owner, Wendy, who wished me well and offered to link to my blog on their Facebook page. The first thing I like is that the loom comes already assembled. All you need to add is the warping bar and spring bar, and the shedding device if you are using it (after you warp the loom). There are printed instructions that come with the loom. You can also find PDFs on the Mirrix site with pictures of warping step by step, for each setup - bead weaving with/without the shedding device, and tapestry weaving.
