      Thanks Sandra!  That was exactly what I needed.  I had completely forgotten we had already covered this topic.  I hope all is well with you.

        Can you expand on how you are pressing the fabrics after fulling?  How do you preserve the collapse effect?

            Again, thanks for your help.  I am about half-way through this project and really enjoying the results.  I’ve substituted red for the white.66D15320-DDB9-4515-9126-AE1725745601

              Thanks a million for your help.  I went back to my emails and saw the revised pattern as well.  I hope to get this on my loom in the next few days!

                I am just getting ready to start the undulating tea towel kit and have a question about the threading draft:  It looks like the sequence is repeated (7 times) and that the “repeat” ends with a single black thread.  The next repeat starts with 8 black and so now there are 9 threads in the group rather than 8.  Am I reading the pattern correctly?  It seems to me that the sequence should end with an 8 count of the greys/white and not include this single black thread.

                  You mentioned something at the very end about using an 8 harness loom for clasped wefts. I’d love to know more about getting the power from my other harnesses – as we go along. Another great episode! Thanks for the terrific instruction and inspiration.

                    I am trying to use your Master Sett chart to determine my starting point for some handspun merino I plan on using in my warp and weft.  In order to compare it to the Harrisville Shetland you sell, I needed the ply/count.  I am assuming it is 2 ply.  Using your formula (solving for size rather than yds per pound), there are 1800 yds in a pd of Harrisville  X 2 ply / 560 for a size of 6.5.  Is that correct?  I have spun 2/13 with merino so am thinking to use 18 EPI and 18 PPI.  Seem OK?

                      Another great episode.  I had to wait to watch this and it was worth the wait.  I have been trying to get a sense of the Count system so that segment was particularly helpful as I spin my own fibre.  Now I know what count it is.  Thanks for showing all the samples – also very helpful.

                        Anyone want to suggest what the loom loss is on the Louet Delta, please?

                          You can also find the reed chart in the JST Helpline section of the website as well as many other useful bits.

                            Just finished watching it end-to-end as it is sooooo hard to take a break from all the great information.  As a beginner, one question I have – which I assume will be addressed later – is how does one make a change on an existing warp from more epi to less epi?  Do you take the warp from the reed and starting in the middle, re-sley everything, leaving the extra warp on the edges for removal (or wider fabric)?

                              I see that Jane is using the shoebox to manage the bobbin of silk as she is winding onto a pirn.  How is she managing the bobbins (on the floor) for the other fibers she demonstrated in the ball winding section of the video?

                                Hi everyone!  My name is Debbie.  I live both in Vancouver and Washington DC and pinch myself everyday to think that I live in two such great cities.  I started weaving in the 1970’s and learn through a correspondence course that was mailed to me every three month over a four year period.  Then life happened and I’ve been moving my wheel and loom around with me for the past 35+ years, sadly storing them in a closet – unused.  My husband recently surprised me with a beautiful Delta 16H loom which is waiting for renovations on our studio to be finished, in order to have room for set up.  In the meantime, I am back at spinning and am really loving what I am producing.  I can’t wait to see what it will be when I get the loom working.  Jane’s online guild is perfect for me and the timing couldn’t have been better. I am learning so much and am anxious to put it into practice. I also do stained glass mosaics, cross stitch, sew, cook/bake and will wait until my retirement, later this year, to (re)start painting, fly tying, basket weaving, and travel.

                                  Yes, yes, I’ll be there Friday through Sunday!  Please let me know where and when.
