All proceeds will be added to NVWG’s Pauline Duke Educational Fund. The Fund was originally set up through a “pay-it-forward” donation by Dawn Forde from the sale of a loom given to her by Pauline. The fund has been used for various outreach and educational programs, including payment of guest speakers, purchase of workshop supplies, and the screening of “Yarn, the Movie”.
A friend of mine inherited a big wheel, which she wants to get rid of. There are a couple of problems with it: one is a broken spike. I’m not sure of the other issue, but I think it was minor. It’s available in Bolton, MA. Let me know if you’re interested and I’ll put you in touch with my friend.
Well hello again! I am selling my Might Wolf after all. 36 weaving width, 8 shafts, 10 treadles. Here is all the stuff it comes with: height extender with tray, stroller, wolf trap, double back beam, (assembled), raddle, 8, 12, 14 and 20 dent reeds, sectional beam, wolf trap, 36 lease sticks, temple, extra heddles. I am asking $2800 but this is really negotiable. Loom is 9 – 10 years old, 1 previous owner and in excellent condition.
Even if you are not interested but you have knowledge of used loom prices, can you contact me at email@example.com. I really want to make sure I’m asking a good ballpark price – not over priced – because I want it to live in a happy weaving home and also, well, erhhh, I may have just purchased a baby wolf accidentally.

Due to the uncertain times we are living in with current COVID-19 restrictions, we are cancelling and postponing some of our Spring programs.
28April2020 afternoon meeting is cancelled. This was to be a presentation of “other looms”, where members would be able to try out different types of looms that they may not have had previous exposure to. We will keep this program on our list to be rescheduled, but there will be no meeting on the 28th.
23-25April2020 “The World isn’t Flat” workshop with Sally Eyring is being rescheduled. Participants will be contacted directly to find a timeline that works for everyone. There are still a couple of seats available if anyone is interested.
26May2020 “Polychrome Huck” presentation with Sue Hall Smith is being rescheduled. We are holding this date open to have a social “What I did on COVID break” meeting, in the hopes that things will re-open by then.
23June2020 Pot Luck meeting is scheduled to be at Marie’s lovely home in Bolton. Again, we are holding this date in the hopes that we will be allowed to gather by then. Details TBA.
We will post more as things evolve in these ever-changing times. Meanwhile, stay well and Weave On!
Our meeting scheduled for 24March2020, featuring a presentation on Shibori, has been cancelled. We will do our best to reschedule this topic for another time, once all COVID-19 directives have been lifted.
We are still planning to hold our meeting and our 3 day workshop in April, but will reassess as things evolve. Stay tuned for updates.
Meanwhile, everyone stay safe and well, and keep weaving!!
At the regular Guild meeting on 24 February, Penny Lacroix will be showing us how to create a symetrical V-shawl (or V-scarf) from a 4-shaft warp. Together we’ll look at how double weave works and then see the magic of the V-shawl!
Socializing, snacks and library time start at 7. The meeting starts at 7:30.
At The Fiber Loft, 9 Mass Ave., Harvard, MA
Registration for the 3D workshop opens to non-guild members on Wednesday 26 February. If you’re thinking about the workshop, now is the time to hand in your check!
Still missing from the guild library: Handwoven May/June 2010
Please check your things! This may have been left in the pile of donated magazines at the December meeting. Front cover pictured below. Our copy has a bright orange sticker in the upper left-hand corner (also pictured below,) a card pocket inside the cover, and is stamped in many places with the “Nashoba Valley Weavers Guild” stamp.
