          I’ve never done twill so I thought it was a wonderful introduction,  I ended up saving all the samples for myself and future reference

            Hello, I don’t like being the problem child, but it seems I am and a brand new guild member, just signed up!  Can someone explain why I cannot view the episode videos?  I admit to not being a computer wiz, but I have no problems viewing videos in general on my computer.  Is there a specific app I must download before being able to watch.  Darn, I was so looking forward to this….

                Hi Jane and team

                Can you please let me know what episode basket weave is explained on the blackboard. I have seen it before but cannot seem to find it again.

                Many thanks

                Chris

                    Hi just about to start Twill Simple Two Stripe Sample. I’ve watched all videos. Did I miss something? How do I do clean cut lines on a 4 shaft loom / 6 treadles used for going from 1/3 twill to 3/1 twill? Do I retie my treadles? On video you have 8 shafts 1,2,3,4 then 123, 234, 134 and 124. Looking forward to my first twill sample ! Thanks

                        Unfortunately, Jocelyne – 1/3- 3/1 twill needs 8 treadles. Even if you did direct tie-ups, you would need to press down on 3 treadles at once to weave it 🙁  However, I just quickly scanned the rest of the Twill samples and it looks like you will be fine for the rest of the Season.  Do you have access to a table loom?  You could weave 1/3- 3/1 on that.
