CHH has some equipment that will be included in the silent auction at the meeting on Thursday, April 17th. Periodically the guild cleans up the equipment department and sells a few things. We have gotten a few donations over the past year that duplicate equipment, or are just more than I have room to store. Here is what will be up for auction:
- Baby Macomber loom – 24” weaving width, 8 shafts, 2 beams, circa 1970’s – Minimum bid – $400.00
- Louet S10 Spinning wheel – Louet’s basic wheel, current retail new is $510.00 – Minimum bid – $175.00
- Warping reel – table top model, not sure who made it – Minimum bid – $50.00
If you can not make the meeting and are interested in one of the above items you could assign someone to do your bidding or contact Tracy Kaestner; [email protected] and she can bid for you. Proceeds from the equipment sales will go in to the equipment budget, which is used to maintain our equipment in good working order and buy new equipment that we need. This year we purchased a new Ashford Traveler to be used at the rodeo and rented to our members.
