Mirrix makes a good quality loom used for both fiber tapestry and bead tapestry. An 8” loom will take approximately 65 beads in a row while the 12” takes approximately 115 beads in a row. Larger looms are available. I have used their looms for well over ten years and have always been satisfied with the results I obtain. When starting out I would recommend an inexpensive loom until you decide whether this is the right craft for you. Once you have made a decision to move forward with this craft it is worthwhile investing in a good quality loom.
