    Thanks Ginette:  Aren’t you the kindest. I’m prepping for a Robyn Spady workshop that our guild is bringing to our area. I am so profoundly excited about this online guild to learn to be a better weaver. Warping well is right where I want to be. I have too much information and want to find my personal best way to best get a warp on efficiently. Thanks for helping me. I will have to do three chains to create the width I’m aiming for. Next time… the warping reel.  Signed up today for Jane’s workshop  at ANWG this summer.  Hope to meet you there!

    Hi Chrysalis,

    Wow your warp is beautiful and so perfectly wound with your threads side by side!  Yes, I would make a second warp and not try and squeeze it all on one.   Make sure when you remove this first one, that you don’t grab your lead string.  Love your colours by the way 🙂  What are you making with this lovely warp?

    SO here’s a question I may have missed …  I’m winding a warp.  Practicing even steady tension and orderly alignment.   THEN I run out of space and could not possible get all the warp I need on the pegs.  Yes Yes I should’ve used my warping reel but I wanted to practice as a follow up to the video.  I’m assuming I just make multiple chains and thread them side by side.  Any comments, suggestions, solutions at this point?   The warp warp

    I used to do that too Helen!  At one of Jane’s workshops, she took the time to show us how to do multiple threads and my warping sessions have changed for the better because of that technique!  But you are so right, tying each thread to a peg really created loose threads when dressing my loom.  I now always try and make my warps with more than one thread even if it’s the same colour, cuts down the warping time 🙂

    I learned a lot just watching these videos. Especially the changing colours. I also wrapped each colour separately. Now I’m going to try and wind multiple threads like Jane did. I for some reason never thought to tie the two ends together I always tied them to the peg then wondered why I had loose threads when it was time to warp the loom! Talk about dumb.

    Jane often winds her warp keeping to the pattern of her final cloth. So, when she was winding the colour and weave warp in video 3, she explained how and why she wound it that way. There is a lot of information packed in each video – sometimes it helps me to go through something like this video over again to pick up on things I might have missed the first time. Have fun!

    She didn’t explain why sometimes she was warping 4 yarns and then 2 or just one. I didn’t understand that. I usually warp one color at a time and she seemed to warp everything all together.

    Venke,

    I always try to have the threads lie flat and in order on the pegs. I find it makes it easier when separating them on the raddle and helps ensure that all of the threads are the same length. Of course, sometimes I get lazy and try to cram too many threads on the pegs. Then I regret it as I’m warping. Every time….

    I learned several things that I’ve been doing that need improving and Understand more about why I end up with some longer and shorter ends.
    I think I have been twisting the threads when going around the warping board pegs. It looks like you wind over the peg so that the threads are always flat and not twisted?
