    Hi Joan,

    You should get the loom out and start making rugs! What kind is the loom?

    We had it set up at one time and it took up half of our bedroom.

    I haven't done anything with it since that time. If anyone is interested in buying it, please PM me. I have no idea what it would be worth or even how to ship it.

    (I live in CA for anyone who wanted to pick it up rather than have it shipped)

    I am 53 years old, married and lives in Indiana. I would love to hear from others that weaves.

    I would love to have one or love to know someone close to me that had one. When I was growing up our neighbor had one and made rag rugs. I can remember my Mom sewing strips of fabric together & we would roll them in balls and take to her for our rugs. She would let me do a few rows when we were at her house. So fascinating.

    The only weaving I have done is card weaving - my sister is the expert in our family. She really enjoys Swedish weaving.

    Have you checked for a yarn shop in your area? I recieved the class schedule for one close to here, and one of their classes is on how to warp a loom. Perhaps there is a place near you. (This class is in Kansas.)

    Hope you find someone who can help. :D
