About Classifieds

The classifieds is a service provided by the Weavers Guild of Minnesota. The classifieds are intended for

  • the (re)sale of new and used equipment, books, and supplies related to weaving, spinning and dyeing
  • to facilitate commissioned work (to search for a skilled craftsperson to do x)
  • In select cases, WGM may also approve ads for events and sales, donation requests, and other content. If you have questions about the content of your ad, please contact WGM before submitting.

Information for Sellers

Each ad is free and up for 90 days. The seller controls the price and other information and is able to attach one photo. (If you have trouble setting the price, please note: do not use a dollar sign.) After submitting your ad, there is a brief lag time before it will be visible, as all ads must be approved before going live.

The Classifieds serve as an online site for prospective sellers and purchasers. All users at all times should take steps to avoid scams and fraud. Many scam attempts involve these same characteristics:

  • An email or text from someone that is not in your area.
  • Vague initial inquiry, e.g. asking about “the item.” Poor grammar/spelling. Unfamiliar with weaving or spinning terms.
  • Requesting to pay by Western Union, Money Gram, cashier check, money order, paypal, shipping, escrow service, or a “guarantee.”
  • Inability or refusal to meet face-to-face to complete the transaction.
