I couldnt download this with my linux laptop.I would love an explanation about drawdown and wonder if its elsewhere on the course?
Thanks so much Sandra for that useful advice. I will send a photo when Ive washed it. Would you recommend continuing to do use the same method for future washes?
Looking forward to more on collapse weave, this has really whetted my appetite!
Ive done this with white slubby wool warp and weft,which worked very well. Then I did the same using silk for warp and weft which was less successful. Now I am going to try out 2/33 cottolin for warp and weft, hopefully this will work much the same as cotton.
Any suggestions would be very welcome.

This is fantastic Jane…..I wish I’d known all this before! it explains why my results have been so variable. many thanksFebruary 3, 2020 at 9:26 am in reply to: Thoughts on 3.10.1 – Pushing the Boundaries of PW Conclusion #155883
Thanks Ginette. I have tried the first suggestion but still cannot find “pushing the boundaries of plain weave 1”
I then tried to access the beta index but it got stuck on the first page…
I dont know where to go from here….I am sure Jane mentioned this episode and I havent imagined it!

I cant find “pushing the boundaries of plain weave 1” is there an index somewhere so I dont have to keep bothering you?

Thanks for both or your replies….Ive just woven with 12/2 linen in the warp (16epi and then 12 epi) and then the same in the weft. Also some tussah silk in the weft and singles 4/1 . its incredibly stiff but maybe washing it will help. Also I am going to try different setts. I am determined to master linen because it is so beautiful but I really dont know if the yarns I purchased in the UK are the same count as the ones Jane uses…
I hope the silk warp worked out in the end Sandra….

my loom is a David which Jane said would be fine for linen as the shafts rise and sink equally but isnt it a sinking shed loom?January 30, 2020 at 4:39 am in reply to: Thoughts on 3.2.3 – Cramming & Denting Linen Warp at the Loom #156215
Thanks Sandra, I was hoping to use it for both warp and weft. I wonder if I should change it for 2 ply? I have done quite a lot of weaving in the past.January 29, 2020 at 10:46 am in reply to: Thoughts on 3.2.3 – Cramming & Denting Linen Warp at the Loom #156213
I’ve just bought some linen in 16/1 and 12/1 and am wondering if it was a mistake and I should get 2 ply instead? I would be interested to hear you thoughts.
Do you use overspun yarns for collapse Jane? and if so will you be doing a session about it?
PS I am in Bristol
Hi Linda, I’ve recently started Jane’s course and am loving it.
I wonder if you’ve managed to work out how the yarns she uses compare with nm ones? I presume you’ve managed to
work it out.
many thanks, JuliaJanuary 15, 2020 at 4:27 am in reply to: Thoughts on 3.3 – Good Weaving Technique – Playing the Loom #157483
I love your warmth and your humour Jane.
Its great that you talk about posture and that your own is so good. I teach the Alexander technique and am often horrified when watching others weaving, spinning or doing almost anything without any awareness of their “use” as Mr Alexander would say.
