        I needed something to keep my David from walking on my vinyl plank flooring.  I finally found something at the Quilt Festival in Houston last fall.  It is a No-Slip Material made by Martelli. It comes in a package of two 12.5 x       12 .5 sheets which I cut into small squares to put under the rubber feet.  Go to http://www.martellinotions.com . It wasn’t cheap  but you get plenty. It work.

          Thank you for your response Jane. I think I understand what you are saying.  Have gotten the warp resleyed and have woven about half of the scarf I designed using only certain sequences from the sample. Will post a pic when it’s done. It now looks like the sample that is online. Trying to get it finished to show off for our Weaver’s Study Group at Yarnorama in Paige, Texas this Sunday. The majority of our group are members of your online guild and we have lots of discussions about what the latest session is teaching us and showing off our take on what you presented. I have learned so much since I joined in Jan.2019.

            supp weave

            I have tried two different ways. One gets the image I attached. This is not the warp I see in the video. The other crosses threads between the heddles and the reed. This second way creates raised threads. I am a visual type person. The more I try to decipher everything, the more I get confused. The diagram in the middle of the page of the pdf is not real clear as to where the supplementary threads come from and where they go to.

              I’m going to try getting an answer here.  I cannot get the supplementary warp threads to warp correctly.  The threading is correct according to the diagram at the top of the page   442121212121212121332121212121212121. Each in its own heddle reading right to left and repeating this sequence from fuchsia to fuchsia.  Here is where I have problems. What exactly do you do with 3 and/or 4 when sleying the reed? I either get them separated by a couple of threads or because I cross them over the ground threads there are a supplementary thread and a ground thread sitting in the middle of the shed, which makes it almost impossible to pass a shuttle through.  I am probably overthinking this whole thing, but I cannot go on with my own project. The diagram on the pdf is confusing to me. I can send pictures of my original sample which shows separated supplementary threads because I changed the heddle threading. It worked but the two supplementary threads are separated by a couple of threads.  I would like for them to be next to each other like Jane’s sample. Help!

                For some reason, I got two background threads between the two light green warp threads. And it looks funny. I thought according to the pdf that the two light green warp threads should be next to each other in the fabric. I double checked the threading and the denting and they are correct. I can take a picture if needed. I have taken my sample off and need to rethread and/or re-sley before weaving again

                    I’m confused. The way the topic starts it sounds like you are going to wind off 4 bobbins from 1 cone at the same time. But from what little of the top picture I can see it looks like you are using 4 cones to wind those 4 bobbins. Please clear this up because what I read cannot produce 4 bobbins from 1 cone at the same time. TIA

                      Thank you for the quick response. Already watched each section once. Now to watch bits and pieces as needed.

                        I have printed out the pdf. I am getting page 1 as a single page, page 2 and 3 as a single page, page 4 and 5 as a single page and then page 6 as a single page – total 4 pages. This is how it shows on screen before printing also. Is there something I can do to get all single pages or do you need to redo the pdf file? The double pages are small for my oldish eyes. I need 6 single pages. TIA Dianne

                          Thanks for the hot link. Searching the Online Guild Forum section didn’t work for me. Now to go looking for the LED strip

                            Just watched the David video and noticed the light on it. Would you mind saying where you got the light? I am trying to increase the lighting at my David. TIA Dianne
