"Tools of the Trade" Tabletop Loom:   $500
This lovely 4-harness "Tools of the Trade" tabletop loom came from a church auction in the Santa Cruz Moutain. some years ago. I thought I might use it because I have an affinity for looms -- my grandmother learned to weave in Sweden after retiring as a school teacher. She wove such lovely fabrics, from bedspreads and curtains to fabric for pillows and dresses. I've realized that weaving is a true art and takes patience and time which I don't seem to have right now!

Tools of the Trade looms were made by Art Weitzenfeld in Fairhaven, Vermont during the 1970’s and 1980’s. His skilled craftsmenship can be seen at He no longer makes looms so I think this is a good investment. As far as I know all the core parts are there except for fabric and a shuttle.

I hope that with all the wonderful artists out there this loom will find a good home!

In Search of:    Cone Winder:

My grandmother used to have an electric cone I know they exist!  But I haven’t been able to find one.  Does anybody have one they don’t use anymore?  I can’t even find a new one..they all are essentially ball winders on a cone.  If you see one, I would love to buy it!
