Looms, looms and more looms

I was asked by a dear lady down in Chilliwack if I'd come and take some photos and put an ad in our blog re this great loom which she is selling. She's now living in a "walled city" for seniors and simply doesn't have room. It is a great 8-harness loom with lots of bells and whistles - includes some AVL end-feed shuttles, the warping mill, tool shelf, bench and a few reeds! Her contact number is 250-703-0029 for more information. I hope we can find this loom a new home. Sharon

Here's the info on my loom: 36" leclerc floor loom $350.00 includes 8 dent reed, bobbins, shuttles, bobbin winder, skein winder, warping board, bench selection of yarns Judy 250-832-2195
Our good friend Shawn Martin phoned to say that they , Shawn and his new wife Irene, will be selling the big house and moving and that they will be selling the loom and other related bits that my friend Deb used. It is a Leclerc and it is either 36 or 45 inch..It will be going for about 200.00 or best offer.( much less probably)There is also a piano that they will give away. An old upright. If anyone is interested they can call me at 838 0232. Marcia Duthie. These items have to be picked up and the location is Westbank.
