          Jane, your techniques are awesome and I have learned so much in this episode 3. You really make everything look so much easier than I have been doing and I enjoy your down to earth approach and I do not feel so overwhelmed. I can’t wait for lesson four. I am a happy weaver now!

            Does it show us somewhere how to make a paper quill?

              Can I ask about the bobbin winder that Jane is using. Is that a bespoke bit of kit cobbled from a sewing machine motor or is it available commercially?
              Thanks

                  Hi Steve, I’m guessing that it’s a Leclerc Bobbin winder – because Jane carries them on her website. She only carries weaving accessories that she likes in her shop! They are an investment but – IMHO, so worth it.

                    this was a great tip. I have always known that I needed a sausage shaped bobbin, but never knew how to get one. I tend to build up my ends too much. Now I won’t have a snag at the end of the bobbin.

                      Hi Steve,

                      I think she said it was a Schacht. Looks like they are $380 USD. Unfortunately, a bit too high for me. Looks like a beautiful machine.

                        What size Schacht shuttle do you have in this video?

                            Jane usually uses an 11″ Schacht open bottom shuttle because that is what fits in her hand nicely.  It all depends on the size of your hand and what is comfortable in it.
