WANTED: old j-hook heddle bar holders for 100-year-old loom

3¼" long with threads at end. Many people had them on older looms but they replaced them with the spring loaded screw. If you kept the old style and wish to sell I'd be interested in purchasing several.

Looms and yarn for sale

I am trying to find good homes for some items of my mother-in-law’s, who was a weaver and fiber artist. She worked mostly with Tamalpais Weavers, who I have not been able to contact, and she also took classes at College of Marin.

As of now, I have three items:

  • Nilus LeClerc Dorothy table loom, $500
  • portable tapestry loom, $50
  • chest full of yarn, assorted colors, all wool, as far as I can tell, $150 (?)

I hope to find interested parties for these items. My mother in law was very accomplished, and I know she would want these items put to good use.
