Antique German Double Flyer Parlor Wheel

Lovely antique (1845-1860) German (probably Dusseldorf) double flyer parlor wheel for sale.  This type of wheel was typically given as a wedding present to a new bride, and the story that came with this wheel when I got it was that it was given to a countess.  It has the initials "A.H." on the table.  Dark wood, with bone or ivory decorations. Excellent condition, completely functional.  Come with two original bobbins, plus 4 more that I had made for it. 

I bought this wheel in 2010 from a collector and tuned it up for spinning myself, but just have never used it. Am now downsizing, and this wheel should go to someone who will use it.  Asking $1500.

It should probably not be shipped, but sent via the antique wheel railroad.  I am willing to drive up to two hours from Baton Rouge, LA to deliver.  Contact me for more pictures or questions.

Glimakra Emilia 18" rigid heddle loom + books

I have decided that I am not a rigid heddle person so I'm selling my loom.

18" Glimakra Emilia with stand, 3 reeds (8, 10, and 12 dent), 2 clamps, a Leclerc heddle threading hook and the warping peg.  Also included are two rigid heddle books - Hands On Rigid Heddle Weaving by BettyLynn Davenport and Weaving Made Easy: 17 Projects Using a Simple Loom by Liz Gipson.  Included, but not in the pictures, will be a small stick shuttle.

The only thing wrong with this loom is the little rubber cover on the back handle is missing.  We added two hooks on the heddle bars so that I could make the shed lower and I'll leave those on.  They are easily removed.

New, the price for everything would be approximately $450.  I'm asking $350, plus shipping.  Pickup is available in the foothills of North Carolina.   I'll also deliver within approximately 75 miles of Hickory, NC.

Please email weaver@featherbottoms.com

Seeking to obtain Addi King size knitting machine

I do alot of knitting for charity, especially hats for children. I am seeking to buy a very inexpensive Addi King size circular knitting machine. I have an Addi Express and it is not large enough for me to be able to make hats. With arthritis starting to set in I am afraid that if I don't acquire this larger machine I may have to stop making these hats and I do enjoy giving them to different organizations to be given to children in need. I have priced them and I can find a new one for $209.00 from Amazon, I know that this is a good price but I just can't afford it. If anyone can help I would deeply appreciate it.
