          I can’t watch the currant video as Vimeo says its a private video and I haven’t got permission. Is this because I am due to pay my next subscriptions?

                I have signed up to Vimeo and already have receipt for this year’s payment but it’s still saying I don’t have permission. Can you help please. Only thing I can think of is time difference ( uk) but can’t think how.

                  I have paid my subs but am still being told by Vimeo that I can’t watch the new episode. I have signed up for Vimeo and it recognises me on its site but it still won’t give me permission. Hope you can help. Thanks

                      I just think that it needs to have a button unchecked. Funny how we were all up at 2 am trying to access it. 🙂

                          I get the same message. I was to,d last week that my enrollment would automatically renew, so I don’t understand.

                            Having the same issue with Vimeo content being private. I’m in the U.S. and renew in August!

                                  Me too… locked out – maybe the release today did not include the business adding the list of paid subscribers. Maybe update tomorrow? Can you tell we are eager?

                                          I don’t think the video is released until today (18th January) I am in the UK so not sure what time that will be.

                                            I can not access the video – must be a technical glitch.

When it works it’s wonderful but throw in a glitch and ……… You can be sure that Jane and team are aware of the problem and working away at solving it. We have a disadvantage on the west coast – we’re almost the last time zone in the world so it’s just 8:30 am on this very wet coast. Keep checking, all will be fixed as soon as possible!

                                                      We have had a major power outage and haven’t been able to fix the viewing problem….the power has just come back on so we hope to have it fixed in a hour or so.

                                                                        I had no idea how many people would order so I played it safe and ordered enough yarn for 100 kits.
                                                                        The yarns for the 2nd kit will arrive next week and we hope to have them all kitted up and ready to go by the end of the week. So if you wait until next week
                                                                        you can order both at the same time and that will definitely help with the shipping. We had a few orders yesterday where weavers were clearly going together
                                                                        to share their shipping. If you don’t have anyone to share the shipping with, then this would be a great time to add a friend to the guild ;), wink, wink and then you will.

                                                                        I know you probably can’t believe it, but I’m still weaving samples for this programme. I developed this process through my production work but those pieces are long gone so
                                                                        I am having to reproduce everything so I can show you the proof. This means I am still building the content. The one thing I can tell you is that the kits will only have the 8/2 cotton yarn for the base sample and
                                                                        8 yards of work on it. As you saw in the intro I go off on different tangents releying and using different weft yarns. I am not providing those yarns in the kits. Those tangents are optional and the purpose of them is to help you use you stash productively and successfully. There isn’t much that I don’t use together. I weave cotton with wool, with silk, with linen, with bambu…..I don’t make yarns live in separate worlds. You will also learn how to mix different weights of yarns, one in the warp and one in the weft and still create beautifully balanced and drapey cloth. I am hoping you will be able to do some serious stash busting this year.

                                                                        Anywhoooooooo….as usual, I hope this helps.

If I purchase a kit for a sample, can I count on there being enough yarn for the warp and also the weft for that first section?

                                                                            Thanks – Pattie

I love towels, I love colors but design has always been something elusive. I confess I have done snaps with my phone when I see you whip a towel by that I like – and most of them are the Asymmetry pattern! So I eagerly await next month. I have been weaving for 20+ years ,even teaching an “Intro to Weaving” for people who want to know if they want to invest in a class without spending a ton of $, and I have learned so much from Jane. I added beating on an open shed to last Intro and my co-teacher noted much better selvedges.
                                                                            For those of us who love towels, can we get some sort of cheat sheet for the year so we can figure out what colors in our stash we have and what we have enough of? And I am right that I can substitute cottolin for the 8/2 cotton? JANE RULES!

Two questions as I check my stash in preparation: (1) I may have missed it, but are you using mercerized/perle or unmercerized cottons throughout? And (2) Can 10/2 cotton be directly substituted for your 8/2 or should we expect to need to adjust the sett? I know they are fairly close and I have some great 10/2 in my stash.

                                                                                    • #156945

Feel like I am preschool with a whole lot to learn. I joined the online guild this week and know I am going in the right direction. A big thank you for the hard work you put in to these presentations. As a new member when you mention emails stating to look at episode 4 from last year is this something I can look at or just last years guild members? Thank you

I am using Kit #1 for the Guild Season 2 and while beaming the warp, one thread broke. As there is no cloth to weave the thread into, how do I fix it? Will the pattern be off if I just eliminate this thread? It seems to be it would be? Thanks!!

When this happens to me, I tie the two broken ends together and fix the it after it’s off the loom by weaving in a new thread with a needle. I go about 1 1/2 inches before & after the knot then cut the knot off. Maybe someone else has another solution to suggest.

Now after watching this segment again I realize that I could have just opened up the sett! But, I think the towels would have been possibly too thin for a kitchen towel.. My towels are not asymmetrical but they are still pretty. Also, changing colors every ten picks is not happening again! Too time consuming in my opinion!

                                                                                                                                            I think $75 is totally reasonable for the amazing videos you provide! And I see the price is now raised to $99. Still reasonable! I have been a subscriber, even though I don’t have a loom yet, just because I love watching you and learning you. I’m so excited that I just ordered my Louet David. It should be here by February. So, now I will go back and rewatch everything from the beginning and weave along. I’ll probably be a couple years behind, but maybe I’ll catch up someday. Thanks for the amazing instruction you provide. I really love it!

How long it will take me is the question. but in spite of all, i am learning a lot and am looking forward to this year of colour and design.  Sister Janet

                                                                                                                                                          Thanks for asking this by the way, it gives me a reminder that I need to update it to include Season 5!! 🙂

                                                                                                                                                          You know, I’m a knitter too and yarn is like crack to an addict with me. I have no willpower when it comes to yarn.   When I first started weaving, I thought to myself– ah-ha — a way to bust some of my yarn stash.  How young and foolish I must have been (aboout 2-3 years ago) because now it seems I have ten times more and different kinds of yarn.  The stash-busting did not go as I had intended –lol    😀  😀  😀
