60 inch Leclerc Colonial for sale $1500CAN
– can be both jack AND counterbalance with either overhang OR underslung beater – in great condition (extra tie cords, heddles, pins)
-double pocket Leclerc bench
-1″ sectional beam WITH 1 yard extension (I’d never be without this!)
–tons of large-eyed heddles for easy threading and also great for larger yarns since they aren’t twisted loops no yarns ever catch
This is a wonderful loom which has served me well and made many beautiful items which have brought joy to many people.
A larger loom like this allows you to make those blankets, table cloths, drapes, fabric and more!
Strong enough for rugs – and light enough beat (and great heddles!) for lace.
Smoke-free, must-free, climate controlled studio.
Can include reeds though they will be priced separately. Shuttles also available.

The reginal district of Nanaimo recreation department is exploring the possibility of offering a mother and daughter textile class based out of Bowser elementary school. This program would run on April 11th, 18th, and 25th from 3:00 – 4:30pm. The program would be managed by an RDN staff member who would be responsible for organizing and managing the group.
We are looking for an individual (or individuals) who would be available to provide instruction for approximately 1 hour each Monday to the girls (aged 9-12 years) and their mothers. We hope to offer a basic form of knitting that can be easily grasped by participants.
Knitting supplies (based on your recommendations) will be provided by the RDN for all participants. We may be able to also provide transportation from Qualicum or Parksville to Bowser and back again with the RDN program leader.
Thanks you for taking the time consider this opportunity and I look forward to hearing back from you at your earliest convenience.
