Just hard to believe all those beautiful towels came from one warp. I’m looking forward to going through my stash & hopefully coming up with a warp that will produce towels equally as lovely.
I found the filming a bit dark when Jane was at the blackboard & around the 40 minute mark had difficulty seeing what was being written in the tie-ups.September 10, 2019 at 2:05 pm in reply to: Thoughts on 3.8.3 – Supplementary Warp, Dealing with Your Floats and a Tad More on Design #155939
I have my kit yarns ready to go for the supplementary warp scarves & fortunately have ten treadles, but I have what will seem like a silly question. What type of sticker does Jane use for labelling the treadles that comes off easily & does not leave a sticky residue. I know masking tape can leave a mess & some white stickers don’t want to come off.

Can’t thank you enough for making a weave structure that always seemed so complicated, into one that I look forward to exploring. I have watched the first segment several times while taking notes.

Hello Strong 61,
Your placemats look terrific.
To prevent having all those loops while changing colours during warping, don’t tie off the colour you are working with, instead, tie your next colour directly to the end of the colour you have just finished working with…. thus, no loops to deal with when transferring to the back beam rod.
Hope this helps.
Such a fabulous episode & so much information. One of those scarves will look so elegant when going out in the evening.
Would Tencel be a good substitute for the silk? I have so much in my stash.
Hello, I’m Gale from Petrolia, Ontario. I learned to spin in New Zealand while backpacking there & in Australia for a year. Once home & taking further lessons I saw students at looms & the rest is history. I have a 45″ 4 harness Le Clerc, 8 harness Baby Wolf & recently added an Ashford 16 harness table loom for the time coming soon when I can no longer crawl under the loom.
I heard Jane speak at a seminar many years ago & have been a fan ever since. On my bucket list was a trip to Salt Spring Island for a week long class. Jane, I’m sorry I couldn’t take classes in person, but these on line classes are just the ticket. Look forward to seeing you in October at the OHS Conference.

Colour has always been my impetus, along with being a bit of a “recipe” weaver. These classes on weft faced weaving have really given me a better understanding of the theory behind the designs & WHY they are happening. Thank you for the light bulb moments!
I was given a tip years ago that has been very helpful. Tuck a sheet of white paper under your weaving when hemming with black thread.
I just finished weaving 60″ of a 4 yard warp using your “beat on an open shed” instructions Jane and I can’t believe how little draw in there is and the selvedges are almost perfect! Best tip I’ve had after decades of weaving. Thank you so much.
