I’m coming up on my first anniversary studying with Jane. As soon as I started looking at weaving as my main “sport,” I was intrigued with the mechanics of the loom. It seemed like magic to me that so many things could be done with such an ingenious tool. The beauty of Jane’s online guild is that now she is making me into a magician to I can work and understand the magic of the loom. Thanks, Jane! BTW, another thing I’ve noticed studying with Jane is that I now talk to myself more than I used to. The dialog is treadle counting or heddle counting or the “…beater back…” mantra. It’s all good. Again, thanks, Jane.

Am soooo looking forward to this season and learning more about lace!! I have done scarves using Huck lace, but am looking forward to learning about more lace techniques. I love lace and this is really something exciting!

I’ve always wondered how Jane goes about choosing which yarn will be used for an episode. I have a stash (as most weavers do) and would like to use some of it. For example with the lace weaves this year, are there some yarns that should not be considered due to long floats, being slippery etc. for some of the laces? Or is it ensuring that for the yarn chosen the the correct epi / set are determined for the type of cloth you want,

I’m not sure that this is the right place to ask my question but… I’m attempting to do the turned twill lesson. I am using tie up#3 and I am having a lot of difficulty keeping my shuttle from falling through the warp when I throw it for the #2 treadle.
When I look at my warp with the treadle 2 activated I am seeing what appear to be smiley faces in the red section and one gold section of the warp. I only notice this with treadle two. Is this an indication of uneven tension on my warp threads. Would cutting and re-tieing my warp be a solution?
I am working on a Leclerc Colonial loom. Set up for rising shed action.
