      Hi everybody!

       

      I hope you’ve all found a way to make it work with your looms! I just wanted to say that the tip Kathleen gave about using a bigger shuttle really helped me. It’s not perfect but it definitely goes over the higher warp threads easier!

        Thank you that is very helpful! I do find that I have to advance the warp very often. I will fiddle a bit with the tie-up to see if it helps.

        I happen to have a basket full of second hand boat shuttles, most of them old and quite big! I will see if there’s something in there that I can use:) I have small hands so I just picked the smallest one I could find to try out.

          Thank you for your help! The heddle bars are properly in their clips. Unfortunately I can’t raise the beater on this loom. It’s an older model, I guess they didn’t have all the extra’s that newer looms have:)

          Have a great day!

            Yes you are right about the heddles. I thought it was me, but they do slide really badly! I’m glad to know it’s not because of my clumsiness haha.

            About the beater, no matter what position I place it it never touches the threads, except when I’m not pressing any treadles. Unfortunately I can not raise the beater on this loom.

            Thank you for the tip about the lace weaving!

             

            Have a lovely day!

              Hi Anne!

               

              The hooks on the heddle bars are in place. There is no big gap in the warp on the beam, I used a raddle and distributed everything evenly. I have no idea why they all want to move around haha:)

              The picture with the shed is actually the problematic shed I was talking about. It is definitely high enough on the top threads. But the bottom threads don’t touch the wood and because of that I keep skipping lots of threads.

               

              Thanks for your help! Have a lovely day!
