Enhance your weaving journey with the Cricket Quartet!

Building on the success of Schacht's renowned 15″ Cricket, the Cricket Quartet evolves it into a 4-shaft loom with a 13-1/2″ weaving width, unlocking a realm of complex patterns.

Its precision-engineered levers ensure smooth raising and lowering of shafts for clean sheds. The extended back beam and pivot beater optimize your weaving space. And like all Schacht creations, it's proudly made in the USA.

Why the Cricket Quartet?

From twill and waffle weave to bird’s eye and doubleweave, the Quartet lets you explore intricate patterns with ease. Its independently-moving shafts, combined with easy lever action, make pattern weaving intuitive and fun. Plus, its compact design ensures it's portable for workshops and fits seamlessly on the 15″ Cricket Stand. Switching between rigid heddle and shaft weaving? The Quartet's design allows for easy installation and removal, giving you versatile weaving options.
