Through a local listserv (do we still use that term) called Mom Mail, I obtained these beautiful weaving tools free! I love the wooden boat shuttles; I have plastic ones because the former can be expensive. In general I find the tools involved with weaving to be inspiring in their own rite. They are a perfect union of elegance and wholesome. I cherish that no electricity is used. (I even have a hand cranked bobbin winder.) Sigh--I miss weaving! I should be back at the loom in a couple of weeks.
