          I have completed the first sample.  I understand the tie up for sample 2.  Is the tie up for samples  3-5 back to 2/2 same as sample 1?

            I would like to do the samples suggested on the PDF.  Number 1 is complete.  Number 2 is waiting for me to change the tie up.  But I need the tie ups for samples 3, 4 and 5. These weave up quickly.

                Have you had a chance to review Large Threadings Gamp at the Board, Dianne?  It would probably help for you to watch it again, while taking notes, to help you understand Unit Substitution and the other gamps in this episode.

                One more question. I am trying to figure rose fashion treadling for the last threading – Advancing threading.  Got all the others figured out for rose fashion but can’t wrap my head around Advancing threading. Any help would be appreciated.

                  Dianne, another weaver here…in one of Jane’s lessons for this season she said to treadle rose fashion by using the opposite treadles. She said make your right foot originally with treadle 4 be your starting 1 treadle, treadle 3 would then be 2, treadle 2 would be 3, and treadle 1 is now 4. I tried this and after getting my head wrapped around the idea and my feet to cooperate, it worked just fine.  Hope this helps,

                    Hi- I thought that I posted this question, but don’t see it listed here- so I will ask it again.  As I was threading the heddles, I realized that I was putting my warp threads on backwards (according to the way I had wound the warp). I even used cross ties to show the top of my warp and cross.  I was able to thread the heddles in reverse and all worked out ok- but was wondering if you could help me to understand how this happened, for future reference.

                    Thanks Joan

                        Hi Joan!  When threading, you thread the chart going from right to left.  I know – it feels a bit unnatural 😉  However, the tip in this threading was the floating selvedge – the first thread doesn’t go into a heddle – and you start threading from there.  Hope this helps.

                        Thank you. I did thread from right to left and was aware of the floating selvedge, but my threading was opposite of the one Jane did. In other words, My first grouping was advancing threading and my last one was M’s and W’s. Since I don’t know how I reversed it,  I am bound to do this again and in some weaving pieces, it might really make a big difference.

                          It’s me again, Do you think that this is because I had the cross on the bottom, rather than the top?

                              Hummmm – now you have me wondering!  Your colour counts would be off if you threaded from the other side of the cross and I would think you would have caught that as you were threading.  You would have 50 black to start with, rather than 40 black.  What does it look like on the other side???  Did you question the numbers in your mind as you were threading?  Did you start threading with the divider on the left of the top row?

                                Hi Joan,

                                Just chiming in, making the warp following the warp colour sequence, your first 40 black threads will end up on the left of your warp chain on your warping board. What you need to do next time when you put the warp on your loom is to flip it over (your top of the warp will be on the bottom & vice versa) so that the 40 black threads begin on the right side of the loom. Hope that helps 🙂

                                Hi Ginette,

                                I thought I wasn’t going to be very interested in twills.  More fool me. I have just spent a fascinating 3 hours non stop watching episode 4 and I’m hooked.

                                I understand we will get to multiple shafts later on but I’m wondering if there is any chance for getting these drafts for 8 shafts now.

                                    Hi Sylvia – Jane will get to 8 shaft twills – eventually.  There is still so much still to come on 4 shafts 🙂  A great book on 8 shafts is “A Weaver’s Book of 8-Shaft Patterns: From the Friends of Handwoven” edited by Carol Strickler.  If you can get your hands on that book – you will be happily busy until the JST Online Guild moves into 8 shafts 😉
