          If you look at the episodes, the project is in episode 5, after all the basics are covered. You can pick up some projects you like from other sources (free interweave booklets or books from library) and work along. I already have project lined up, and will do all the warps until the next episode. It means a lot of practice and working out all the bugs from my warps.

            I do have a project but I’m not sure where to begin with it.  I took one weaving class over 10 years ago and can’t remember the formulas etc.

            I will see what my books say.

                Look into JST helpline.  Jane gives a lot of guidance and answers tons of questions.

                Thank you for your responses.  I finally got through the last warping episode.  Our Internet is slow.  I picked up a warping board yesterday and she gave me a bag full of books on Weaving as well as some bits and bobs.  Some will be very useful.

                Can’t wait for the next set of episodes.

                  I love these videos. I have learned so much. I have a question about a Glimakra countermarch. Do you think I could put a raddle

                  on the shafts so I can work from the back to place the threads in the raddle? I did order a raddle and have never worked

                  back to front. It looks so much better!

                    I was wondering if anyone has any thoughts on how to best warp a LeClerc Tissart vertical loom – it is likely too difficult to do the back to front method seen in Episode 2.  Where would you put the raddle other than in the reed, and then warp front to back? (or front upwards towards the back beam 🙂

                    Thanks.  Kathleen

                        Check this from Tommye Scanlin – she is a tapestry artist and a teacher.

                            Thanks Inga – I have seen that method /link- I was wondering if I could adapt the back to front method that Jane was demonstrating – especially in terms of where to put the raddle.  Thanks for your help.

                                In original instructions for your loom they use ‘back to front’.  You take a reed out of the beater and put in a raddle. It fits in and you have a cap to put it on instead of elastics.  For what I gather, Jane is clamping a raddle on the shafts because it is a comfortable position to reach, but for vertical loom that is not an issue.

                            I also have a Glimakra and have seen the paddle place in the beater. Then the harnesses are dropped down on the treadles to get them out of the way. I think this is too complicated and that is why I have always gone from front to back. Is there another way for this loom?
