If you haven’t had a chance to see the displays at the libraries, please pop in. The display group did a lovely job!

… a grand offer from my first student, who simply must tend to her twins and her business rather than to the space and time weaving requires. This represents a complete weaving studio in one package at a great price – a new weaver’s dream. Lana Schneider
4 Harness Fiber Designer Loom w bench, excessories and yarn inventory – $950 (Olympia)
condition: excellent size / dimensions: 4 1/2 ‘ H X 5 ‘D approx.
This gorgeous “Fiber Designer” loom made in Albuquerque, NM was handed down to me by my grandmother. I have had a lovely journey with it, but feel that it should be getting more use than I am currently able give it, (being the mother now of 4 year old twins : )
This jack loom is in excellent condition. It has a 48″ weaving width. It comes with 4 harnesses and 4 treadles and has room for 8. It works well for weaving rugs and mid-heavy weight fabrics from small to large scale. The loom is currently disassembled.
The loom come with an adjustable wooden bench and a large array of tools and yarn (see attached pictures):
– Yarn inventory includes a large quantity of wool in a full range of colors, ample warp thread and some specialty yarns, un-spun wool and fleece.
– 1 Warping board
– 1 Umbrella Swift
– 2 Lease Rods
– 1 Hand bobbin winder
– 12 and 15 Dent Reeds
– An array of shuttles, forks, battens, spools
(See attached images for full inventory)
-A warp board (not depicted) is also included
Everything is here to get a beginning weaver completely set up, or to beautifully augment the repertoire of an experienced weaver. This loom is a joy to work with!! I am asking $950 for the whole package.
Our home is in Olympia, but my husband also travels frequently to Seattle and the Olympic Penninsula for work, and could potentially meet in those areas.
*Please note that table loom is not available : )
