  • 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
