        I’m in the planning stages for the Color and Weave Gamp and my main choice is between my 2 looms.  I have a 32″ Ashford Rigid Heddle, which would work for width, but the highest number of dents per inch I can get is 15.  My other option is to use my 15.75″ weaving width LeClerc Dorothy Table Loom on which I would have to do a double width cloth.  I do have a 12 dent reed for the Dorothy.

        I would like to hear some input on which loom you would choose to use.  Each poses problems.  I’m concerned the 15 dent reed will be too loose a weave with 8/2 cotton, which is the thread I have for the project.  Double width cloth poses problems with accurate threading.

        Help Please!

          Stayed up late last night watching and finished watching this morning.  I was so excited to see this; can’t wait to get started, but it will be a while as I still have a lot of weaving to finish first!  Fantastic job Jane, very engrossing!

              Is it the #12?  If not, what weight does she use?

                  Thanks Jane!  I’m now perfectly clear on how to proceed!  Just waiting for my  yarn to come.  Can’t wait to get started, I love the draft!

                    Thank you.  I re-reviewed my pdf’s from year 1 and found it, Exactly what I needed!  I’ve learned so much in the first year’s episodes I feel my brain is getting full!  LOL

                      Greetings to Jane and this question is for you or the hive mind.  I’m a fairly new weaver and will be weaving on my 4-shaft Dorothy with a 15 3/4″ weaving width.  This poses a width problem for me which I’ll have to overcome by weaving a double width cloth.  I’ve never woven a double width before, though I believe I’ve figured out the threading and treading.  I want to make sure I’m thinking correctly.  Shafts 1 & 2 will be the top layer of my cloth and shafts 3 & 4 will be the bottom layer.  It seems to me for a sett of 18, I need to wind warp for 36 epi, and use the heddles required for a sett of 36, to give me 18 epi on each layer.  Do I have that right?  My second concern is when we switch to 12 epi, once again my narrow width loom is a problem.  So my second question is would you start by warping for 12 epi (24) then moving tighter to 18?  I’d like to make all my samples as dish towels to finish at 26″ wide.  Any and all help will be greatly appreciated!!!

                      Another question – what size reed should I use?  For 36 epi or 18 epi?

                        I loved all the episodes for this sample! I’ll be weaving on a LeClerc Dorothy with a weaving width of 15 3/4″ which means I’ll have to weave a double width cloth. This will be a first for me. My second challenge is going to be when we change from 18 epi to 12 epi. That narrow width on my loom makes this problematic. The only solution I see is to warp the loom for 12 epi and still start weaving at 18 epi thus giving me a narrower cloth. Do you see a better solution for me to try?

                            When I print the pdfs I get pages 1 & 2 on the first, and pages 4 & 5 on the second. Is there a page 3? I am running MAC High Sierra 10.13.6

                              I’m a relatively new weaver and I use a 4 shaft table loom. You have helped me break bad habits early on before they’ve become ingrained in my muscle memory and for which I sincerely thank you! I couldn’t stop watching. In fact I think I watched the first year in 3 1/2 days! I learn by rewatching, so as I get to the next step, I’ll rewatch that episode. I found the PDF’s to be very helpful and are now in my notebook. Can’t wait to start watching the 2nd year; it’s like watching Downton Abbey, you just can’t stop!!! LOL Again, Thank You from the bottom of my heart!

                                Greetings from Pennsylvania Dutch Country, Lancaster County, PA  I started weaving on a rigid heddle loom several years ago and just recently bought a LeClerc Dorothy Table loom, 4 shaft.  This Guild has been a god send!  Many thanks to Jane for making it possible!  I’ve watched the first three sessions and learned so much and just in time to break bad habits before they become ingrained.

                                  Let’s see if it worked for me.
