The Saori Ch60 loom, weaving classes at Saori Santa Cruz

I have owned 19 different floor looms that come and gone  in my weaving career but my Favorite loom  of all the others and that i totally love now  for over 8 years is the SAORI CH60 LOOM.

  I love all the models of Saori looms but ch60 is my favorite.
