Loom /Crafter’s Bench for Sale

 

Hand-crafted loom bench/ crafter’s bench for sale– $375

Solid walnut bench has storage bin at the bottom.  It can quickly be converted from a flat seat (configuration shown) to a rocking seat by taking out the bolts shown in the center photo and turning over the supports on each end.  The top just lifts off for easy access.  Holes down the two sides allow for height adjustments from about 15 ½” to 22” in seat height, using the same 4 bolts. Seat width between the uprights is 25” and overall width is 35 ½”.  The whole bench can be taken apart for storage or shipping.  It is a very sturdy bench and a beautiful piece of furniture.  I built it because the rocking configuration gave me extra leg leverage when weaving with more than 4 shafts on a treadle and it really helped.  My new loom is too tall for me to use this bench—otherwise I would not sell it!  Buyer can either pick it up in central Missouri (Lake of the Ozarks area) or pay actual shipping charges to destination.  Contact Diane Crowder at liebcrow@earthlink.net with questions or to purchase.  Will be available first week in February.

New Hand Weaving Blog

New Hand Weaving Blog

I am new to blogging and suspect I will make a lot of mistakes!  I don’t plan to post very often, but I do want to share some of the things I have learned over more than 20 years of weaving.  As you can see from my “About” page, I am a retired college professor now weaving full time.  I passed the examination for the Handweavers’ Guild of America’s Certificate of Excellence in Weaving in 2012.  This self-taught rigorous exam took 4 years of research and 40 weavings in every kind of structure.  I have done several presentations to my local guild, as well as teaching classes here in central Missouri.

My plan for the blog is to post two kinds of things.  One will be my presentations on topics such as using thrums (loom waste), reading drafts, making low-sew handwoven clothing, and more.  The other will be examples of my weavings with comments on techniques, weave structures, loom shaped clothing, etc.  My hope is to share what I have learned, to inspire newer weavers, and spark sharing of ideas through your comments.

The photo above is an old one showing a ruana in both handspun and commercial yarns.  I made it when I lived in Iowa, where the warmth was very welcome in winter!

I hope to post one of my presentations soon, so check back often.  Thank you.
