          Well!!!.

          I’m blown away with this intro to 8 shaft weaving in turned twill.

          So much to learn my head is spinning and can’t wait to get started.

          I recently got an 8 shaft table loom so may take all month to weave all the samples! but sometimes slower makes digesting the theory easier?…

          Marvellous Jane!

            YAH! What a wonderful intro to 2021!  I am in awe of all the different towels you show and cannot wait to try this next project.  Waiting for my yarns to arrive and will get at it. THANKS!

              Just hard to believe all those beautiful towels came from one warp. I’m looking forward to going through my stash & hopefully coming up with a warp that will produce towels equally as lovely.

              I found the filming a bit dark when Jane was at the blackboard & around the 40 minute mark had difficulty seeing what was being written in the tie-ups.

                    I love this episode, finally I understand the principle of the turn twill and I can’t wait to come up with a new color of dishcloth. I have lunch while listening to the noise of your trade before going to work and I can not wait to come back to continue. Thank you for passing on your passion, dear Jane.

                      Thank you for adding a session with 8 shafts. I have a photo example of a project that I want to complete in point twill but have been scratching my head over the colour changes. This is MOST helpful.

                        Turned twill is fantastic!  I may get stuck here for awhile (happily).  Sometimes the sound is hard to adjust, I liked

                        being able to use the words.  Jane Edgett

                          So inspiring! I’m just getting my warp made but have changed the colours and sequence of blocks. It’s taking a while but it will be worth it. Thank you so much Jane.

                            Jane, I have been weaving turned twill all this past year and I still come away from watching you having learned so much.  You are such an amazing teacher and I am excited to keep playing with this weave structure for the coming year.  Off to order some JST silk for turned twill scarves…..

                              This was definitely my favorite episode, although I say that a lot.  I have an 8 shaft loom, and I have woven turned twill, but I didn’t really understand the structure or what the possibilities were.  So thank you for including this episode.  I understand why the bulk of the episodes are for four shaft looms, but I hope you will occasionally provide at least some discussion of how a weave structure could be used on an 8 shaft loom, and maybe an example or two, so that we are more aware of the possibilities, and the theory behind it.  We can all pull patterns from 8 shaft books, but understanding the theory behind the structure is so much more helpful.

                                Oh my , this is once again absolutely mind blowing. Now I understand how these blocks work. And those colors…. I’m blown away. Which colors did you use for the thussa silk scarves?

                                Yes, and I would urgently need a recept for how I can turn my 24 hour day into 48 hours 😉. Just gorgeous!

                                Thank you for being such an incredible inspiring teacher.

                                  I’ve been weaving (and working full time) until last year. Didn’t plan on retiring the year before pandemic but now I have time to weave and have realized that I needed to learn the how and why of things. I could follow a pattern, but now I’m gaining confidence. My intimidation came from not really understanding the tie-ups. First of all, my first loom (Le Clerc Mira) which I still have and love made sense with “twill is 12,23,34,14). Quickly, I went to a jack and even though I understood it was opposite… I never truly got it until I listened to your lessons. All tha5 to say, Thank you for your teaching style!

                                    Thank you for this inspiring lesson on turned twill.  I’m so very happy to explore 8 shaft weaving and the complexity that is possible!

                                      What an amazing episode!  I am blown away by all the information and possibilities that have opened up from now understanding the structure and seeing all of the examples of what can be done when color is overlaid onto it!  I’m sure I’ll refer to these episodes again and again, as I have done for many of the other excellent lessons you’ve given us, Jane.  Thank you!!!

                                        Thanks for your teaching and encouraging us to change the tie-ups. I am getting a grasp on turned twill and how tie-ups work!.  I did have a challenge with my 8 harness countermarch ( Julia Glimakra).  I like to take off heddles I am not using. Duh.  So after everything was perfect, I removed the jacks and whoosh, shafts 1-4 all fell down on the side where there were no heddles. I stuck some on the end but I have a narrow loom so they are close  to the edge.  I should have spread some out while threading.  I am not sure if this would have occurred with the Spring’s parallel tie-up.

                                        I am playing with colors I never thought would work together-these are fun!

                                          I am almost done with towel 7, and having so much fun! And discovered I can change the tie up on my Gilmore from the front! No more lying on the floor, trying to see, etc., etc., etc.! Worth every minute of figuring that one out! The thought of managing the tie up has stopped me from exploring eight shafts—but no more!

                                            Don’t stop saying that you love each structure as you come to it.  That’s just how I (and perhaps most of us) feel.  Especially when we are in your presence.

                                            I’ve done Turned Twill, but now I really understand it, and how to tweek the tieup and treadling to get even more out of it.

                                            Yay Jane!!

                                              I am so in love with this turned twill episode with all the tieup options. This 7 gauge bamboo scarf is sett at 18 epi and has a lovely drape. I have included framers and broken twill. For my second scarf I am going to change the sett to 16 epi to see how it feels. I now have to get two extra treadles to add to my Spring loom!! So much fun.

                                                I finally made it to towel #7, about halfway done.  Looking at the plan for towel #8, I am confused with the instructions starting with “12 picks stripes…Then frame and hem. I am going to see if I can find a visual for it in the at the loom section. We are having rolling blackouts due to weather so very little time to look before losing connection.

                                                        Thanks Jane and your community of fellow weavers. This episode on turned twill feels like a game changer in terms of finally understanding, really understanding, the magic of turned twill. I have woven several checkerboard napkins, and now feel so inspired to play with framers and can’t wait to weave scarves. Thank you for your terrific teaching!

                                                          Somewhere I saw listed the colors of the bobbins that Jane used from her stash and now I can’t find it. Can anyone help? I need to build my stash of 8/2 cotton.

                                                          I can’t wait to do this episode but need to do Season 4, episodes 7, 8, and 9 first. I had a “hardware failure” in my hip in November, two surgeries in December, skipped Christmas entirely, then while still recovering, broke my scapula in the right shoulder. The sling came off yesterday and I’m going to try winding a warp for Twill and Basketweave. I have so missed weaving.

                                                          Sorry, I hadn’t printed the pdf and I see that Jane listed the colors there.

                                                          Also, Beth that is such a beautiful scarf.
