        Hello Jane,

        At the moment I’m sampling on my Louet Jane table loom. To get an even selvedge I find I’m having to beat with an open shed to place my yarn and then a closed shed to firm it in.
        Also it’s difficult to get into a good rhythm when using my hands to change shafts, unlike a floor loom. Any tips?

        Best Wishes
        Mary

          Hi Mary,
          Weaving on a table loom is very different than on a floor loom as you have noted. I throw then beat on an open shed, change the toggles and beat again. There really is no other way, but you do get faster as you become accustomed to the sequence. The trade off is portability. I do all my sampling on floor looms and use my table loom for workshops. However …. I do know a lot of weavers who don’t have space for a floor loom and their table looms are their best friends.
          Hope this helps.
