That's what it had to be. An extreme case of March Madness. What else could explain how I now own, well.
It will weave fabric up to 38 inches wide and however long I want to thread it. Hand made, perfect condition. When in use it's 4 1/2 feet tall, 4 1/2 feet wide, and 5 feet deep. The gentleman who made it for his wife ( a weaver for years ) didn't want it to dominate the house... so its collapsible! When I'm not using it, the whole shebang folds up to only 2 1/2 feet deep.
How much did I shell out?
$500. That's it. He even through in a brand new yarn swift. I may curl up in a ball and giggle with delight. Don't mind me. At the last moment, my folks decided that as they had been the ones to tell the Prime Geek and myself about it, and as they would be out of town with my brother and his family for Easter... they paid the PG back the $500 and said Happy Easter.
Now, I just gotta figure out how to use the dang thing.....
