Sorry you are having issues viewing the video. I’ve just tested it and it’s working fine at my end. We have some suggestions when this occurs that may help you in the FAQs section of the forum.
Have you had the chance to sign in and check the episode on the new Online Guild website School of Weaving?
Just wondering if it would work better for you for watching it.
If you wanted to add those 3 threads, Jane shows how to add a few threads when changing zingers threads. You’ll find it in Season 2, Episode 2.

I’d use this technique for sure. Otherwise, you could just leave them out too!
Let us know how you make out or what you decide to do!April 24, 2021 at 1:42 pm in reply to: Thoughts on 1.2 – Making a Good Warp – Warping on a Warping Board #211068
absolutely! What works best for you on your warping board. When you winding on the loom and if you use the book technique Jane shows, try to use a wider book and get all 4 chains under it.
Warping with more than one thread in your hand would not cause it. As long as it was threaded as the pattern.
Hi Sarasvati Lynn,
I feel for you! Are you able to do a straight stitch?I always use straight stitch, just because I don’t sew much and straight has always worked for me. I’m thinking maybe your sewing machine foot may need adjusting?
Also, Jane did a bonus video in Season 1 Episode 10 on Finishing where it’s all on hemming, machine & by hand that you may find some answers.
Hoping someone with more experience will chime in 🙂April 19, 2021 at 10:50 am in reply to: Thoughts on 1.2 – Making a Good Warp – Warping on a Warping Board #209153
I use cotton and cottolin together quite often actually and they shrink the same. I do use the yarns at JST. If both yarns are the same size, for example 8/2, you should be fine.
Hi Jacqueline, which sample number are you working on, I’m thinking it’s #2 and the first one that Jane weaves on 5.2.5?
What is your treadling sequence, is it Tabby Float Float Tabby (1,4,4,1) and then switching to your other Tabby Float Float Tabby (2,3,3,2)?April 16, 2021 at 2:49 pm in reply to: Thoughts on 2.3 – Dressing Your Loom Back to Front – Warping a 27 yd long warp #208876
Are those threads not in between layers fallen over the edge? If so, it may create tension issues when you’ve advanced the warp. As for the no slack in the paper, you don’t want the paper to bubble up in spots as you wind on, if that makes sense! You want the paper to maintain an even roll on all the time.
You are so welcome pcjm22!
Here you go! I’m pretty sure they are correct 🙂
No it’s not a secret 😉 it would take me a bit to sort them out for you as we haven’t marked them. That said Jane would know right away and would step in but she’s taking a well deserved little break this week.
I may be able to later this evening after work though if you want to wait. I haven’t woven them myself yet.
On the index for Season 5, they are listed with a timestamp if that helps as you try and sort out the weft colours.
Have you had the chance to check out the Index for Season 5, we have it all listed there with time stamps. You can download it to add with your notes and PDFs.
You can find the index on the drop menu at the top – Learn – then Index – Season 5 or at the bottom of the last Online Guild newsletter for Season 5 Episode 3, it’ll take you there directly. We’ll be updated the index to include S5E3 & S5E4 when 4 is aired.
One last place to find the index, which I just updated tonight as I see we forgot to add it with the other indexes will be at the top of the episode pages right here: https://janestaffordtextiles.com/online-guild-episodes/
I think you’ll be ok. When you thread the reed, your warp will be going out a bit on each side compared to the width when you wound it on the loom. I’ve changed the width before, make it wider after it had been wound on and I was ok. Also, in one of the episodes in Season 2 Jane opens up the sett from the original warp and weaving was just fine.
Do let us know how it works out!
We use regular 8/4 cotton for a carpet warp as well!
