        Hi everyone,

        I’m new to this forum. I have a problem with my cloth. As it rolls over the cloth beam it seems to drag and the threads get skewed. Is this a tension problem as it is only on one side? Will I need to cut my project off the loom and re-tie?

          Is it possible that something bulks up UNDER your cloth? I know that problem from the cords that attach to the cloth beam. In the beginning, they tend to distort the threads at the egdes.

          I also like to use a very big yarn for the first few rows to straigthen out the warp threads. If the start or end of this yarn entangles in the cloth, it bulks, and I get distortions at the egdes.
