      Jane, I have to get this off my chest.  About six months ago I decided I wanted to explore cramming and spacing threads in the reed, and to find as much as possible in the literature as well as weaving fabrics with this technique.  One of my friends alerted me to your guild and the fact that you were exploring this as well in your third season, which prompted me to join up.  I am thoroughly enjoying all the episodes.  We can always learn new things!  But…when I hear “cramming and denting” I fear that weavers everywhere are now going to call it that.  It really is “cramming and spacing”.  In fact, yesterday I read in a 1953 publication, <span style=”text-decoration: underline;”>Four Harness Huck</span> by Evelyn Neher, the term ‘Reed Pattern’ Huck, where Ms. Neher describes “the plan by which this threaded draft is put through the reed…giving more pattern to the fabric.”    My understanding is that <span style=”text-decoration: underline;”>every thread that goes through the reed is dented</span>.  Is there any way you can clear this up?

      Love, love, love your episodes and am having fun listening every day to try to catch up!
