      Love the “hot colors” combined with the “muted warp”.  What a great combo.   I am learning so much from your color (and patterned) gamps.  (I also love that you show the “oh, shoot!” moments (weft pick hanging up on the cloth apron rod in the previous video – thought that only happened to me).)   Time to start some gamps for sure, but after the holidays.

      Thank you so very much for all of your generous information and dedication to helping and developing newbie multi-shaft weavers!

        Hi Sandra!  Thanks so much for answering.  I did actually find out (after paying attention) that empty shafts on my Spring 90/12 slightly rest on the warp coming off the warp beam  It doesn’t really become an issue until the warping rod comes up and over and gets near the heddles near the end of a warp.  I usually weave with eight shafts, and those four unused shafts actually behave better if locked up and away from the warp.  Just my 2 cents.  Happy weaving!

          Don’t worry about graph paper, just sketch … I giggled.  I have never been able to draw a straight line (perhaps why I prefer computer graphics and coding), but I persisted… my notebook looks nothing like your samples, but in my head I have tons, and tons, and tons of ideas… I just wish I could put them properly on paper.  Can’t wait to sample and explore!

            I notice in this video that it appears the locking pin remains in 4 shafts (I assume the unused shafts).  Is there a reason for that?

              What size Schacht shuttle do you have in this video?
