Hi. I'm a relatively inexperienced weaver but am ready to buy a small loom. I don't want a large footprint because I only want to weave table linens, runners, and maybe so light rugs but that's not the main focus..mainly table linens and the like. The Lila looks like a good size but I'm concerned that the front beam isn't as tall as regular sized looms.... but I can't find an "inches" for it. Does anyone know how tall the front beam is? And does anyone have any thoughts about its stability/sturdiness compared to the Julia? Any thoughts in general would be appreciated. Is the Lila a Countermarche? The photos make it look as if the beater swings from the bottom, not the top. Clearly I need lots of direction. I don't know anyone near me that has either the Lila or the Julia so I'll have to buy one sight unseen. Scary proposition so I need lots of advice! THanks.
