      WOW.  I love how these lessons are coming all together.  I can’t wait to get the warp faced on the loom to try.  I’ve always wondered how all those different stripes came together. I really need another 100 years … so much to try.

      thank you!!

        I was wondering about yardage when cramming and denting.  The weaving calculator formulas don’t take into consideration skipped spaces for weft or warp.  How do you determine if you have enough yarn or should I just do the regular calculations and end err on the side of caution?

        I’m just curious and hoping to use up stash/clean house.

        thank you.

        BTW, I’m really enjoying this guild and have learnt so much.

          Thank you Sandra.  I’ll try your method. It might also be a good opportunity to free up s some of my sewing machine bobbins!!

            Thank you Sandra!  I’m kinda hoping that maybe once it’s washed it might close up more but I am going to sit at the bench and stare at it for awhile and see if the OCD kicks in.

                Hi Ginette,

                Yes, there is Limette thread that I tied to the peg on the cross end.  It had a loop where I secured it.

                I ended up just tying it to the back apron bar.

                Next time, should I have tied off the multiple threads of 4 at the other end and begun the next section so it ends at the threading end?

                  I made a number of mistakes while winding the warp.  Actually, I make lots of mistakes. And on all the samples so far but it’s learning.

                  I posted that a question about my over -counting earlier today.  I’m still pondering a solution.

                  I did have a question while winding this up.  Odd numbers.  I have knots at the lease end and I have knots at the breast beam end.  If you end up with an odd number at the lease end and it is the literally the last group of threads, how do you tie it on and still have room for your lease stick?

                  I am not sure if this was even suppose to happen but I did it!!

                  I hope this makes sense.  If I ever make it out of Season 2, it will be a miracle:)

                    Hi Mary,

                    thank you and I hope you are never as witless.

                    I am annoyed with myself. I can recall counting out the group of threads but kept going. Oh well.

                    I have just enough beam.  I may try that.  I am trying to figure out how not to cut the ends on them.  if that makes any sense.

                      Whenever I am at Ikea, I keep the paper tape measures that I used “to measure” purchases.

                      I have my husband use one and keep his too.   It has both inches and cm.

                        After doing a search on the internet, Louise French says to wind warp onto back beam until the front of the warp is at the Breast beam. That should be good length  for threading, denting, the tying onto the apron rod.

                        This question was floating in the back of my mind so thanks! If anyone else has even better advice— chime in!

                          <p style=”text-align: left;”>Do you mean the length of your warp? If so, you tie a guide string the length you want. For ex: 5 yard string wound around your board or mill. I was told to add a wee bit for the tie on both ends.</p>
                          or do you mean ends? That you count at the cross.

                          jane explains in the guild episodes. Worth joining if you haven’t. I’m on season 2 and still replay everything because I’m error prone.

                            Thank you Ginette and Sandra!  I will start anchoring and tucking away!

                            Samplers are great! Learning through trial and error!

                              Hi there,
                              Thanks Ginette for the lashing on tip.
                              And more ?
                              I’m reviewing my notes and revisiting videos sections as I work my way through sample 1. (Not that has prevented my many errors) Tucking tails, diving and bumping, and anchoring.

                              anchoring. .. Jane mentioned not anchoring for sample 1 because she wanted a clean selvedge.Did I misunderstand? I can’t find the minute mark.

                              I haven’t been anchoring… beginning or end of color sections.
                              Normally, Should you anchor before and after introducing a new bobbin/yarn?

                              Making all the mistakes …

                                Hello
                                Well, it appears that I have made numerous mistakes regardless of my note taking.

                                Question: what should I expect if I forgot to lash metal rod to the back warp stick— it’s held on by texsolv at either end.? I realized this after I sleyed and tied on to the front.

                                Should I unwind the whole 6 yards carefully and start all over?

                                Some day, I will make it to sample 2;)

                                  Thanks,! I had the same question.
                                  I’m hopeful I can fix the the resleying mistake and be brave enough to cut the warp!
