THE SCHACHT FLIP FOLDING RIGID HEDDLE LOOM
Flip, our folding rigid heddle loom, is comfortable, compact, sturdy, and a pleasure to weave on. Designed for high performance, this loom folds in a jiffy for storage or transport.
Weave in comfort. Choose three different weaving modes: use the rear leg for hooking to a table edge, clamp it to a table for stand-up weaving, or install it on our convenient trestle stand. Warp in a flash. With the Flip Bag, you can easily take Flip along with you.
Fine-toothed nylon ratchets provide precise tension control. The conveniently located heddle blocks on the sides of the loom hold the rigid heddle in the up, down, or neutral position. The heddle, available in 5, 8, 10 and 12 dents per inch, is made of durable ABS plastic, with large eyes and slots. Flip is ideal for plain weaves and pick-up patterns.
Our designed-in two-heddle capabilities make it easy and natural to weave with two heddles.
Included with Flip are clamps and a warping peg for direct-loom warping. We include instructions for both direct and pre-measuring methods. Our top cross braces allow long warps, up to 5-6 yards (depending on yarn weight and winding paper), to be wound on the beams without impacting the size of the shed.
Flip is available in 15”, 20”, 25”, and 30″ weaving widths, and includes one 5-, 8-, 10-, or 12-dent reed, warping peg, 2 shuttles, 2 clamps, threading hook, and complete warping and weaving instructions.
NEW! Variable Dent Reed

Convenient weaving with the Flip Trap
The Flip Trap give you a convenient yet still portable place to set your tools while weaving. The Flip Trap installs into the ends of the loom sides, using the same holes as the clamps.
Expandable Flip Travel Bag
Our updated Flip Bag fits all sizes of the Flip Loom. Now in Natural with the Schacht logo screened in navy blue!
The bag is made of rugged poly canvas with reinforced stitching, carrying handles, shoulder strap, and handy pockets inside and out. Our unique, expandable design is a snap to use: zip out for 20″, 25″, or 30″ Flip looms; zip up for 15″.
Our trestle stand fits all of our rigid heddle and tapestry looms. Adjustable supports allow the loom to be used at a variety of angles from horizontal to nearly vertical. When the loom is in the horizontal position, it is at just the right height for use with a standard chair. Our quick release system makes it easy to remove your loom from the stand for travel or storage. See photo at top of page.
Note: There are have been design changes to the trestle stand. Depending on when a given trestle stand and Flip Loom were built, an insert kit may be required. Please see the Trestle Stand support page for further information.
