          So looking forward to creating this cloth on my loom.

            Thank you for the tip about aligning your tie up with the treadles to make the repetition easy to weave. A small thing but will make such a difference to the weaving.
            Thank you.

              It’s always good to see your feet and how the treadles are marked.  And no, I never get tired of watching you weave.  So calming.  Love the quiet of your loom.  Thanks for all you do Jane.

                Thank you for your clear, unhurried instructions and all the little tips that make such a big difference.   I loved shadow weave, and I can’t wait to try laces!

                  I have used weaver’s knots to tie the warp but they keep slipping. the warp will not stay even.

                      Hi Lauren,  oops! Not sure why I was thinking linen, but, even though in the video below it’s linen, you can use the same technique for cotton.

                      Did you have a chance to watch Season 3 Episode 2 on Cramming & Denting where Jane ties on the linen warp? It’s for about the full first 7 minutes of this video:

                      3.2.3 – Cramming & Denting Linen Warp at the Loom

                      I am using your linen kit for this lesson on a Leclerc counterbalance loom

                        I have a David so on page 7 which is for rising shed would this be my tie up for treadles?

                            You’ve got the idea – Jane has worked it out for us on both riding and sinking shed looms on page 6.

                            One more silly question I promise.  I’m never sure but do the floating selvedges get their own dent ?

                                That isn’t a silly question it’s a good one!  Yes, they do get their own dent – that way they don’t get caught by in threads their own job to do 😉

                                Hi – Sorry if I missed it, but on page 9 Treadling Sequences, what does

                                Canvass Woven with T.D. mean?  OH!  I am listening to ‘Jane at the Loom’ in the background.  I think it means Tie Downs.

                                So, what does  Canvass Woven with C&W mean?

                                Thanks!  – Elysa

                                    Hi Elysa,

                                    Yes, T.D. means Tie-down and C&W means Colour & Weave – from page 8 in your PDF, Definitions there’s a bit more info on there for you.

                                      I have a problem.  I find that the warp floats get progressively looser because they don’t get woven in and out.  How do I keep the same tension as the other warp threads?
