  • Table Loom with Stand for Sale May 22, 2017


    $800.  24” Ashford Table Loom, 4 shafts, folding stand with treadles, ~500 heddles, raddle, 10 dent reed, lease sticks, and original documentation.  All this new would cost $1500 + tax and shipping.  I purchased this loom 10 years ago from the original owner who had only used it a few times, and taught myself to weave.  It is still my favorite loom to take to workshops as it breaks down easily, travels flat even when warped, and is direct tie-up so I can treadle anything on the fly without having to get on the floor to change the tie-up.  There are inch marks on the bottom edge of the beater to assist with threading, added by me (see photo).  At the moment, it has a 300 thread dummy warp attached and threaded in a plain twill pattern, but I’ll remove it if you don’t want to use it.  I’m selling to make room, and help pay for, my new-to-me BIG Swedish loom.  If you’re a new weaver, or wanting to learn, I’ll throw in a copy of “Learning to Weave with Debbie Redding” (Deborah Chandler’s original book).  Pickup only from Angleton, Texas, or I’ll consider meeting up within 200 miles of Houston.  Theresa 713-408-2725

  • 8 Shaft Baby Wolf for Sale May 7, 2017

    $1500.  26” maple Schacht Baby Wolf loom with stroller, 8 shafts, 10 treadles.  The serial number is BW-8-1102, which indicates it was built around December 1986.  The loom was originally purchased by a friend of mine who only used it to weave miniature rugs, which is why it comes with a 15-dent reed.  Some of the original heddles were lost in a move, but I’ve added more to get it back up to 860.  I also added the Wolf Trap.

    This loom is portable enough to use in a workshop, but it is heavy (71# and 34” wide per the Schacht website).  I can move it myself in my SUV, but depending on your vehicle, you may need an extra hand.  The loom is in excellent condition with only minor wear that would be expected after 30 years.

    I need to make room for a countermarche floor loom, so it must go to a new home.  The loom is currently located in Angleton, Texas.  I prefer you pick up, but would consider meeting up within 300 miles.

    If you’re a new weaver in the Houston area, I’d be happy to throw in a weekend of weaving to get you started.  Theresa 713-408-2725
