Is Fireside looms still in business (looking for Warp Weighted Looms

I have been trying to contact Fireside Looms to order a Warp Weighted Loom, Sami style.

Currently I am renting one from my guild; Weavers Guild of Minnesota.

I am unable to contact them through emails or phone.

Any ideas? The last blog I saw about this had a listing from 2015. It is now 2019.

I STILL have been unable to contact Fireside looms (beginning in March 2019). I have attempted emails, calls(the message center is always full) plus asking others including those on Weavolution.

Why would a company that wants business not respond to customers? I see they were a sponsor of this site and maybe still are today.

I hate to put money down on a loom when I can't even reach them. Does anyone have any thoughts.

These are very simple to make; it's a stick held in place at its most basic.  All fiber Arts has directions  for making one, you may have luck with the Sami store in Finland that shuttles, etc.  If  Fireside is this uncommunicative, I suspect they are gone.
