  • Louet for Sale Unopened Box January 14, 2022

    My boo-boo is your gain! I mistakenly ordered a Jane 70 instead of a Jane 50. It arrived last week and is still in the box, not even opened. Loom is as shipped from Louet, no stand included. Contact me – I’m in Houston so free delivery within a 3 hour radius, or I will ship it at buyer’s expense. Please note – the current prices went up at the beginning of the year, so this is last year’s price!

  • Free Loom for Donation to CHH August 16, 2021

    This loom has found a new home!!!

    Gilmore 4-harness loom with benchfree with donation to CHH

    This beautiful 4-harness, 24-in. wide, hard maple loom (originally purchased in the 1970s) was given to a non-weaver who is seeking a new home for the loom where it will continue to be used and enjoyed. Its previous owner used it for  many years to make everything from rugs to table linens. The loom is in great condition, has always lived indoors, and comes with a variety of reeds, shuttles, and other accessories. The loom is free because it was given to me, but I’m asking the recipient to make a donation to CHH in return. Please email for inquiries or more information.

    This loom came from the studio of Kate Weinheimer, a Life Member of CHH.  So the loom has plenty of experience and is used to being “worked hard and put up wet.” Kate is currently living in the Houston area with family.

  • Ashford Traveler Wheel for Sale May 16, 2021
    Ashford Traveler Spinning Wheel for Sale
    Ashford spinning wheel, well-loved for many years but in good shape.   This is single-drive and single-treadle.  The Traveler is a compact wheel that is easy to transport in a car and features a built-in lazy kate.  I’ll include a WooLee winder flyer, a clever device which automatically winds the yarn evenly onto the bobbin as you spin so you don’t have to stop to move the yarn onto a new hook.  There is an extra bobbin for this flyer, as well as the original flyer and 4 bobbins with the standard hooks, all hand-finished in cherry.  I’ve spun a lot of yarn on this lovely wheel; it’s just time for me to downsize and for this to go to a new home!
    $550 with local pickup (Note: cute cat not included!)
