        We’ve been making little videos on weaving tips & tricks from questions & suggestions that we receive from you, the Online Guild members. We’ll be posting them here. Keep those suggestions coming

          I feel this ‘little’ series will grow into a tremendous resource for everyone. Thank you all.

          But what I find most helpful at the moment  is Jane’s insistence on not fretting or fussing and helping us decide whether a possible problem needs sorting there and then or won’t be noticeable when the piece is off the loom and finished. It helps greatly to have Jane’s expertise to rely on!

                Hi! I have forwarded this excellent series to French readers via our weaving forum http://forum.tricofolk.info/forum/viewtopic.php?id=17583

                Info for your non-English reading viewers: on youtube you can have the subtitles translated automatically into your own language. With a little twist of the mind (robots working there), you can make sense of the translated text. Hoping we will have this opportunity in the videos of the Guild in the years to come! They are excellent.

                I agree it is the little things are so important.  I would like to see a handout of how Jane ends and starts a weft.  I found the video of Jane doing this was just too fast hard to see.  Also the same for splicing a join.  Thank you.

                Freda.

                    Hi Freda,

                    Not sure if there’s any plans to have a handout for ends & splicing techniques but you can slow down the videos. All of the online guild ones have that option now which is great! When you’re viewing the videos, at the bottom right is the setting button option, click on it and you can choose to slow down or speed up. Also, for the It’s The Little Things videos on Youtube and on this thread, you can also do that which is great. Give it a try!

                    Do you have a little video on how to weight a selvage or repair thread at the back of the loom?

                    thanks

                        Hi Heidi,

                        Here it is! You’ll find how to weight it towards the end of the video.

                          Jane, I would love to see you create a video where you put a warp on the loom that resulted in tension problems and how you deal with these issues as you continue to try and wind it on the loom.  I have reviewed over and over again the video of back to the front video.  The last 2 warps I dressed the loom with went on the back and in the raddle beautifully but then I still ended up with a lot of uneven threads. I even went to the spot in the chain where everything was stable and tried to even things out but it still continued to be a tension problem all the way through the winding.  I was told never to do the licking and pulling thing on the yarn … you know what I mean … but what can ya do if indeed you do have this happen? Thanks for your amazing guidance!

                            Hi Allyson,

                            Did you get a chance to search on the online index for tension issues? I believe that Jane does address this in a previous season. That said, I’ll make a note of your suggestion to do a video on tension issues.

                              Hi Jane,

                              hi Ginette,

                              I love your workshop and thank you for your extra Videos “weaving tips & tricks”. I have many fun and learn a lot:)

                              But “oh my goodness”, what for a fantastic pattern in this Video about “Hemstitching Your Handweaving at the Loom”. What a nice collection of samples.

                              Please, do you have weaving instructions for me? Is it in some lesson?

                              Best regards from europe

                              Isa

                              I really find it exceptionally beautiful.

                                  Hi Isa, the cloth that you see in Jane’s hand is one of the samples you’ll get to weave when you weave your way through Season 4 – Twills on 4.  You’ll have to be patient 😉

                                  Hi Sandra,

                                  thank you for your answer!

                                  Patient, what is it?😉

                                  I am in Season 2.3 and I will be patient, ok:), anticipation is the best.

                                    I’ve been watching lessons ahead while waiting for new cotton to arrive and very excited for the double weave lesson. Jane talks a lot about checking to make sure the inside stays completely open while weaving the two layers. Would love to see a video on what to do if you miss and accidentally weave through both layers. Is there a fix as opposed to taking out rows woven and go back?

                                        Hi Brenda,

                                        You could fix it afterwards by removing the thread that binds both sides and then insert the new thread using a needle following the pattern. But if I can, I would unweave while on the loom and fix it that way if I haven’t woven too far.
