Free 40" Loom

I was the lucky recipient of a loom from the Christine M. collection last fall.  Unfortunately, it is not the loom for me, so I am ready to rehome it to another weaver. It is a 40" loom, possibly home-made and solid wood construction. I don't know much else about it, as it has never been set up. Please let me know if you're interested and would like to come by and take a look. I'm in the St. Francis area of Santa Rosa.  I am giving the loom away, but if you'd like to make a donation to the food bank or another local charity, that would be awesome!

I really want to re-house this loom by the end of November - Please let me know ASAP if you are interested.
