WEBS is offering a fantastic deal on Toika computer-assist loom! Don’t miss your chance to grab a 20% discount on a new Eeva or Liisa computer-assist loom. WEBS will be demo-ing the loom at the New England Weavers’ Seminar July 11–14, 2019. The loom will be pre-sold before the show and one lucky buyer will save 20% on the price of a brand new Toika computer-assist loom and any extras such as second warp beam, second back beam, sectional beams, second cog wheel, extra heddles, etc.

The basic loom will include a bench, reed of your choice, linen aprons, 100 heddles per shaft, a cog wheel warp advance system and Weavepoint 8 software. The buyer can choose between Liisa and Eeva models, 16, 24 or 32 shafts in 40”, 48” or 59” weaving width.

The loom must be picked up from the Webs booth at NEWS on Sunday, July 14th. Webs staff will be on hand to assist in knockdown and loading and we will train for reassembly. (You could even help with set-up at the beginning of the show, if you’d like.) Barbara Elkins and Leslie Ann Bestor will be available to offer training in Weavepoint software and operating the loom. We recommend that the buyer have a pickup truck, large SUV or van to accommodate the loom.

Since we will be ordering this loom new from the factory, we'll need a buyer by April to allow for building and shipping, so if you are interested, we need your decision by April 1, 2019. Please contact Leslie Ann Bestor, labestor@yarn.com for further information or to place your order. There is only one loom available at this discount and, of course, it’s first come, first served! We look forward to hearing from you.
