          The sheet that Jane Stafford is holding is not the same as in the PDF. The sheet she holds has 3 divisions whereas the PDF only has 2 divisions that do not look to be the same. What is correct?

              Hi there, the PDF for download for the lesson is correct, thanks for checking though! There were changes done to the draft to accommodate the sample for this lesson that she is weaving in the 3.8.2 video.

                Are the 3 and 4 supplemental threads sleyed along with a 1 or 2 or are they sleyed separately?

                    They are sleyed in with the ground. There is a section in the PDF that shows you the sleying 🙂

                        For some reason, I got two background threads between the two light green warp threads. And it looks funny. I thought according to the pdf that the two light green warp threads should be next to each other in the fabric. I double checked the threading and the denting and they are correct. I can take a picture if needed. I have taken my sample off and need to rethread and/or re-sley before weaving again.

                      Thanks so much for sending this great episode out today. We (in NC) are under a hurricane watch and this is a great program to be watching as the rain is pouring down and the wind is blowing hard outside. Once again thanks.

                          In the video on the right is a beautiful crammed denting! What is the warp? Is appears not to exist. Thank you!

                              Hi Nancy, are you referring to fabric hanging on the wall?

                                  In the video it is way to the right of the blackboard. In some of the video you can see it swaying. It has bright colors in it. Definitely cram and denting. It appears no have no warp, but of course it does. Thank you!

                                I can’t find 16/2 raspberry here in the U.S. – what color is close to it? There is Cerise, Scarlet, and Garnet available

                                    I went with brassard magenta since it was a better match

                                    Jane, this is so fun, and I’m excited to try it. But I’m curious why you chose to do the border in weft faced? Won’t that make the edges stiff or less drapey? Thx!

                                        I’m hoping it will all come clear in the next section or when I actually do it, because I feel lost!

                                            Emma – I think it’s one of those things that we actually have to weave, for us to have a eureka moment! I’m looking forward to “playing” with it when I have an empty loom – the possibilities are exciting 😉

                                            I would have liked to have been shown detail of the sample when explaining the tie-up and what each combination produces. I think that would have helped understand. So I guess I should have printed the PDF to look at while watching! (printer not working.)

                                              About to jump in to supplemental warp weaving; may I assume that your explanation for the CounterBalance tie up is the same alternative as for my CounterMarche? I simply reverse the placement for each treadle so that your empty boxes are the boxes I use for my cords? (or else my pattern will be upside down !!).
