          I’d love to use 8/2 cotton for this, rather than 8/4, as I have gobs of it. What do you think? Sett at 20 epi? Many thanks.

              Hi bzbell,

              In Season 2, Episode  2.10.3 – At the Table – Primaries & Secondaries on Black, Jane actually wove that episode gamp at 18 EPI/PPI using 8/2 cotton. It turned out really lovely. If you want to review it, it’s around the 31:00 mark on that video.

                Hi Sue,

                You’ll find them on the Small Threadings Gamp draft on page 4 but you’ll have to add them to some stickers for when you’re weaving if you want to follow what Jane wove.

                  Thanks again for these videos. I began weaving during the 2019 Christmas/New Year holidays and was so fortunate to discover the JST Online Guild. Thanks to Jane, Charlotte, Ginette, Alistair and all the staff who make the transmission of this knowledge possible. I feel I’ve gotten off to the best possible start. Question: Do you hand or machine wash your gamps? I usually machine wash my 8/2 cotton tea towels and find that they loose a certain ‘crispness’ in texture as well as color brightness in the process. The small threading gamp Jane shows, though washed, doesn’t appear to show this. Any thoughts or suggestions you might have would be much appreciated? Thanks!

                      Thanks Frank for the compliment! We appreciate it! It all comes down to Jane, our amazing leader and boss 🙂 I usually wash my samples by hand but you could absolutely do them in the washing machine. The reason I do them in the sink is that I’m always in a hurry to see what they will be like and I don’t hem them first! Did you get a chance to watch Season 1 Episode 10 on Finishing, there could be a few tips there. As for colour brightness in the process, I haven’t experienced that except for reds, which are notorious for bleeding. By the way, Jane washes her towels in the washing machine but always hangs them to dry to keep the crispness.

                      Hi thanks excellent video again. How about sharing a pdf with pictures of all final samples? Would this be possible? thanks.

                          I will ask for sure and see if we can take photos and put them into a PDF or similar format 🙂

                            Hi Taty, we’ve talked about it and we’ll be putting something together for the samples, but it won’t happen for a bit but it’s kind of exciting actually, so stay tuned 🙂

                            Love what I’m seeing.  Would like to lay these threadings and treadlings on a color gamp similar to season 2. Is this possible using 8/2 cotton?  What would the sett be?  TIA

                                Hi Dianne,

                                Just copying my comment under the other video for this lesson with the same question 🙂 You’d have to add extra threads if you wanted it to be the same width as this episode’s sample:

                                In Season 2, Episode  2.10.3 – At the Table – Primaries & Secondaries on Black, Jane actually wove that episode gamp at 18 EPI/PPI using 8/2 cotton.

                                Thank you for this wonderful video and weaving gamp. I really needed something to occupy my mind a bit during these uncertain times.  Be safe everyone. ❤️

                                  I kno we wove our PW gamps with 8/2 cotton set at 18 epi but as this is twill I thought 18 epi will render a far looser tissue.
