Looking for a home for this free loom -


We are not looking to sell this loom, just to find it a new home.  It has been unassembled for a long time and I'm sure needs TLC but my mom was certain she had all the parts and had begun rehabbing it a long time ago but then moved and it sat in storage for years.  She ended up in poor health and never was able to get back to it.  We truly just do not want to have to dispose of it.  My sister and I are not weavers and could not afford to ship it.  She dreamed of getting it back up and going.  She loved weaving and made some beautiful pieces many years ago (on a different loom).  We're just hoping to find someone who would be interested in taking it on as a project.  Please contact me right away at the email below.

We are now hoping to be back in Michigan from Nov 3-8th to finish clearing her things out of storage. Loom located near Potterville, MI.   
If you live near this area - we might even be able to deliver it on the weekend.

Portable Sewing Machine - Fashion Mate by Singer @ 1970’s - with button whole attachment - $100


The original owner said she saved money from her first job to purchase this sewing machine as a young adult from the Singer shop in downtown Ann Arbor during her lunch break.  She said she loved using it had it serviced by a Singer repair tech just before selling it to me several years ago.  I bought it to zig-zag the edges of my weaving and it worked well.  As fun as zig-zag is, I like to sew by hand, thus the sewing machine is lonely and wants to be happily used.  You could be that person.

Located in Ann Arbor, MI - Pick up only

We have Free Kenaf Fiber we would like to share with MLH members:


Like the title says, if  anyone in MLH is interested, we would like to send some Kenaf fiber your way completely free of charge. 
We are fiber processors, and we want to share Kenaf fiber with as many people as possible, as it's an amazing plant for the world but is being underutilized.  It's very similar to hemp & flax as they are all bast fiber crops.   If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me, via email or phone
