Wanted: The book I am seeking is by Susan Rex, ‘Complex Color’ , which I think might have been self-published in 2008.  A copy was donated to the Olds College library by the HWSDA folks.  It is about dyeing wools and would be great for the group I work with here in the Kootenays. If anyone knows where there might be a copy or how to contact the author, Susan Rex, I would appreciate the information. Contact Nora Lilligren at nlilli@netidea.com

LeClerc 45″ Counterbalance Floor Loom
This loom is in fantastic condition and comes with all the parts needed to start weaving right away. It has 4 shafts and 6 treadles, and comes with a bench as well as warping sticks and a shuttle. The bench has a really nice cupboard built into the seat to store your supplies.

I was a student of Mary Andrews in the early 1970s.  With her help, I purchased this 1972 Cherryville loom, built of western red cedar.  I have no way of ever using it again, but am anxious to avoid seeing it as firewood – given all that we have been thru together.  Please use e-mail rliggat@telusplanet.net address to respond.
