It’s Available/It’s Wanted

A Place to Buy & Sell Equipment

It’s Available/It’s Wanted is a service to Warp & Weft Weavers Guild members and website visitors. We list weaving items that are available for sale or swap. All of these items can be listed in our Monthly Newsletter, which we send to guild members, as well as being posted on this website.

Weaving by Annie Berssenbrugge.

Be Cautious!

One of our members received an offer for an item on this page. This ‘offer’ was a typical internet scam, in which an out-of-state buyer offers/sends a check for more than the item listing price and writes “deposit the check & send them back the difference.” The buyer provides no information about who would pick up the item or when.

Always use care if you do not personally know the buyer. If someone you don’t know is coming to your home to view or pick up an item, ask a family member or friend to be present and if possible, move the item to a porch, deck, or garage location so strangers need not enter your home. Lock your doors while you are out showing the item.
