Back to Front vs Front to Back – a wee conversation

There are many choices in life: The Beatles or The Stones, plain chocolate or milk chocolate. Then there’s the really pressing question of our time: Back to Front or Front to Back? It’s a question Sarah threw into the mix on Weave with Jane Stafford on Ravelry: Would you mind talking about pros and cons for warping back-to-front […]

Warping Jane’s Way

I have attached a basic document here that will help you with a multitude of warping questions. It’s a document that makes up a part of a workshop that we hold here at JST called “Honing Your Basic Weaving Skills” and it walks you through the process of making a warp, and warping your loom […]

Extra screw holes on the Jane Loom

I have just, excitedly, put together my 40cm Jane which I am going to use for sampling and workshops. I just need to find some yarn to wind a warp. We have moved house just over a year ago and most of my yarn is still packed!! I have a question on something I have […]

Mystery parts on my “New to Me” Jane Loom

I’m thrilled to be the owner of a ‘new to me’ Jane 70 Loom. There are a couple of parts on the loom that I’m not sure of what, if anything, they are for. On the inside of the sides frame at the front of loom there is a small wood dowel sticking out, I […]

Cord catching on my Spring treadle

On the Spring there is one tie-up cord that is catching a treadle every time.  The cords are all the same length.  What can I do to fix this. It is very strange, always the same cord. Shorten it by one hole…..if that doesn’t stop it, shorten it by 2 holes. Easy fix. Or,  you […]

Shed on a Louet David Loom

The little black wheels and Texsolv cords on my Spring Loom shafts

The texsolv cords for my shafts go around little black wheels at the top and bottom of the loom on both sides.  However they keep coming off the wheels – it seems to be more the front shafts than the back (I’m using 1-8).  I’m doing summer and winter which is heavier on the front […]

Jane rollers

I bought my Jane loom second hand – new in the box – right around the time that the rollers were upgraded.  How can I tell whether I have the new rollers or the old ones? The new rollers are wider than the end cap.  They are 2.5cm wide. Here is a picture If you […]

Fringes on mohair blankies????

I have a mohair question.  I have FINALLY finished the mohair blanket I started almost a year ago (yes, life got in the way). I took it off the loom last night and I absolutely love it.  Now it’s time to full it which I will do in our front load washing machine, using Ravelry’s tonigatland […]
