Here’s a guide for selecting and using a weaving loom from Interweave Press.

Things are worth what they will fetch at a sale.

I have 3 looms that need a new home.
1) Dundas 24″ 4 harness table loom which is what I started with many years ago. It is excellent condition,       picture is attached.  Value is $1000.
2) Gilmore 54″ 8 harness floor loom. It also is in excellent condition, 2 pictures are included. A additional   picture is of a third beam which can be used, weavers choice.  Value is $4000.
3) AVL 20″ 24 harness Studio Compu-Dobby floor loom. It is in new condition. 2 picturies included. Value is $8000.  I purchased it at a trade show about 25 years ago and due to changing conditions in my life it was never setup, (long story). The software driver I have is no longer supported so needs to be replaced. AVL suggests Weave Point for Windows PC (cost $470) and Fiberworks for a Mac.  To connect to a modern PC a USB to serial adapter cable will be required.  I will include all the software I have for the machine
I also 8 transfer boxes of yarn (picture with 1 box open) which I am including.
Also included are the many books containing patterns an instructions.
There is a verity of accessories, yarn and bobbin winders, card and hand looms.
All is available for you to pickup at my home in Modesto CA.
Best offer wins.

Cardarelli Spinning Wheel for sale. Four bobbins. Made in 1967. Asking $500. Will consider offers.  Would like to deliver in person as packing & shipping could be difficult. Located near Modesto, CA. Am willing to drive “a bit” to deliver. Henry Clemes may have worked on this one as it is the year he started working for Tony.
