        I would like to weave the sample for the Double Weave , however the sample kits are out of stock.  Can you please suggest other color groups or colorways that would work well?  I want to work with the Harrisville Shetland Wool since I have never used it before.  Your direct access to the wool colors will work better than me guessing on my computer screen.  I was thinking  maybe reds-purple-blues but I am open to any suggestions.  Thank you in advance, Karen

          This video helped me better understand warping with more than one thread at a time. I finally understand that each group of threads is part of the same cross! I think you just simplified my process of winding a warp.
          Thank you!

            Thank you!
            Colors have always been difficult for me to choose in what I wear, knit or decorate my home with. This was so very helpful. I can’t help but think that Pictures of Birds could provide a great source for color inspiration. I think I may try to create boards for graphics and colors using Pinterest to start.

                Can I use this method to warp multiple colors in a specific order? For example 2 blue threads, 2 white thread, 2 blue threads, 2 white threads (repeat)- It appears that Jane is using multiple colors but may not care the specific sequence of the colors. Thank you in advance-

                  Hi-  I recently purchased a David Loom and am very happy with it.  I learned to weave in college and then laid it away for a very long time.  Now it is 40 years later and I was ready to begin again.  My children are grown and I have retired.  I have the smaller size loom and find it is perfect for my needs.  I can see and reach everything very easily.  I am also 5’2″ .  I assembled the loom myself and it was a great way to learn all about its workings at the same time.  I have joined the guild after watching as many you tube videos as I could find.  I am excited about this online guild as I live in a small town on Lake Erie where most weaving resources are hours away. Best of Luck to you in your search for a new loom.
