I have a complete set of weaving equipment that belonged to my mother, who was a weaver for almost fifty years. The large loom is a Gilmore Maple Loom, 8 harness, 42" and has 14 pedals. It comes with a matching bench. The small loom is somewhat older, a little four harness table loom from Nilus Leclerc in Canada. The dark oak spinning wheel is an antique, I don't know exactly how old, but it's very well made. The other spinning wheel is a bit larger and more modern. Both yarn and spindle racks are also made by Nilus Leclerc. There is a large basket, stuffed full of some rather expensive wool. There are a lot of books, I would imagine some may be out of print. There are a couple of other large pieces of equipment not in the photo, mostly because I'm not quite sure what they are or what they do. There are a whole bunch of shuttles, spindles, and other similar items as well. I am asking $2000 best offer for the entire collection, I may be willing to separate someof the items.
