  1. Hi – I am looking for a used spinning wheel as a Christmas gift for my wife. Price range around $150 – $200. It must be suitable for a beginner.any help or suggestions would be appreciated.

    Thank you

  2. Hi, I recently authored a Handspinning Journal, intended for yarn spinners who dye and spin their own yarns. It’s a sort of a diary where you document different stages of the spinning process. The book has full color text, which is changing every 10th project, making it easier to keep track of your spinning/dyeing results.
    I have done some research and there’s no similar book on the market (what I know) offering spinners to catalog their own work and progress.
    Would that be of interest for you to sell or offer for purchase at your spinning classes and meetings?

  3. LOUET HOLLANDIA LOOM FOR SALE IN KAMLOOPS,BC
    $3500.00 Canadian or Best Offer
    LOCAL PICKUP ONLY

    I am selling my 4 harness, sectional beamed Louet Hollandia loom which is in excellent condition. It was used mainly for tapestry weaving but I have woven yardage with equal success. This loom is a parallel counter march system which provides a full shed. Extra harnesses can be purchased from Louet if desired. The loom is made from beech wood and is a warm amber colour. It measures 58”Wx43”Dx48 ½” high and the back beam folds for moving the loom or setting it closer to the wall. The front breast beam floats which eases the tension of the warp as you weave and is a wonderful guide to resetting the warp tension as you advance your weaving.
    I am also including the comfortable sliding seat bench which comes with a detachable back rest. As the seat slides as you weave, you have access to the two side pockets as well as the large one located under the seat.
    I will also be selling the Leclerc Bobbin Rack for the Sectional Beam along with assorted large size bobbins and the Louet sectional tension box.

    Items included in the sale:
    Louet Hollandia Loom with sectional beam
    Sliding seated bench with back support and storage
    Bobbin Rack for the Sectional Beam
    Electric bobbin winder
    Tension Box
    4 shafts and 6 treadles
    Weaving width of 51”
    2 reeds: 8 dent and 10 dent
    Lease sticks and many other assorted sticks
    Metal tie-on bar
    Extra Texsolv heddles and treadle tie-ups
    Louet locking pin
    Detachable double shelf
