Forwarding (and enabling)...
Unfortunately, there does NOT seem to be a list of items for sale at
the guild website yet.
P.S. Some advice for potential used-loom buyers. 1) Bring a tool kit
so you can take the loom apart if you need to to get it into your car.
Note that Leclerc looms have Canadian screws and require a set of
square-head bits for your screwdriver. 2) Bring a camera and take
LOTS of pictures before you start taking anything apart. 3) Bring
blue painter's tape and a marker; label liberally, and tape screws to
associated pieces. (And, of course, make sure all the parts,
including beam cranks, are accounted for!)

Doris Boyd's Legacy: April 24 Basement/Carport Sale Features Lifetime
Collection of Weaving & Spinning Equipment, Yarn & Books
When South Jersey weaving teacher Doris Boyd died last December, she left
behind a loyal legion of weaving students who will never forget her
enthusiastic spirit, patient guidance and the incredible volume of knowledge
she shared with us. She also left a collection of weaving and spinning
equipment that includes 21 floor looms, from a 22" 4-shaft Harrisville to a
46" LeClerc 4-shaft rug loom; many accessories including shuttles, lease
sticks, loom benches, a warping mill, a drum carder, a spinning wheel;
hundreds of cones of yarn and three bookcases full of a wide variety of
Those of us who studied with her and treasured our time with her
know she would like nothing better than for her collection to make its way
into the hands of weavers, new and experienced, who will continue to produce
beautiful yarn and cloth and teach others to do the same.
On April 24, from 9 am-2 pm, Doris' husband Howard will hold a sale of
Doris' weaving collection at their home, 232 Oakshade Road in Tabernacle,

pick up a studio full of equipment for below-market prices. Everything must
go, and no loom is priced higher than $300. An antique barn loom is free.
All magazines are 10 for $1, practically free.
