Okay, yes... we have a little bit going on here and it would be hard to tell you everything that we have and do. I guess I'll start with all the looms you see in the pictures. We regularly take in Looms and then refurbish them for sale and classes, so the center floor is always packed with looms. Normally, there is a project on each and every one of them for classes and or product for the gallery. Also these looms are set up for folks to try if they are interested in purchasing a quality used loom. So, if you're looking for a quality Used Loom in West Michigan... you've found a great place to start. We have plenty of weaving and spinning equipment and weaving and spinning supplies in stock as well as yarn, commercial, hand spun and hand dyed for your art projects.
We try to always have at least one new Schacht Baby Wolf loom on the floor ( That's our favorite, sooooooooo..... :-) ) for those who just have to take it home with them TODAY! We also try to always have at least one of each of Kromski and Schacht spinning wheels for the same reasons. We completely understand that if you've made the decision to purchase a fine piece of equipment... you don't want to wait a couple months to get it. We also have the accessories and tools to support weaving and spinning, like: Loom Reeds, Shuttles, Winders, Bobbins and other weaving and spinning supplies on our shelves.
Being fiber nuts too.... we love to play with custom, hand spun and hand dyed fiber and yarn. Some, we do right here in the shop... some, we get from area farmers and fiber studios. Did I mention fiber? Yep, if yer into spinning or felting, we carry some fine roving, "Bling Batts", hand carders and other stuff like yarn. ;>)
We try to carry a nice selection of Henry's Attic Yarns along with other commercial yarns. We also have some close-outs and sale yarns for weaving, knitting and crochet. We have recently purchased some commercial antique yarn winders so we can buy large quantity Cones and rewind into smaller packages to save you money and give you the quantity you need for your project.
