      Seeing you at the loom is always so helpful.  Thank you Jane

        Thank you so much for going over everything thru Anne’s notation.  I know it seems repetitive to you but it wasn’t until the 3rd time you said it that it clicked.  Really started to feel lost at version 5.  But talking thru and showing it with the rhythm really helped me to see what you were describing.  Thanks for your patience.   Looking forward to seeing this at the loom.

          Absolutely loved the show and tell!   So glad you showed many other fiber combinations that will work with the canvas structure.  Looking forward to seeing your new patterns.   Thanks so much!

            It’s always good to see your feet and how the treadles are marked.  And no, I never get tired of watching you weave.  So calming.  Love the quiet of your loom.  Thanks for all you do Jane.

              I’m so excited to understand this weave structure.  It’s been on my bucket list along with echo and iris.  As always Jane you are an amazing instructor.  Can’t wait to get it on my loom and see the magic!

                Could you share this as a pdf or printable doc.  I’m in the same boat.  Thanks so much for the work you’ve done on this.  My email is rlb353@gmail.com.

                  I was also thinking the same as DBF.  Would so love the patterns.  I know Jane has every confidence in us to produce these patterns ourselves, and maybe one day I’ll be there.  But in the meantime, would love to have those designers make their patterns available for purchase.  This was a great episode.  Thanks Jane and crew!

                    Really excellent!  I got it!  Now I can see it in my head.  Thank you Jane.

                    2 questions:

                    I only have a 24″ weaving width.  Would it be better to keep the repeats and just do two blankets or reduce the repeats to put everything in 1 blanket

                    Is there a listing of the threads used in each episode?   I want to check to see if I already have the extra warp colors in the correct weight in my stash.  Thanks

                      I really missed having a weaving lesson and project.  Although I appreciate the exposure to the program since it didn’t cover all technologies or a weaving project, at the moment I’m feeling a bit short-changed .  Looking forward to this month’s topic, and of course Jane at the loom.

                        I only use ipads so I use the IweaveIt program which I have found very user friendly.  I downloaded the Fiberworks program for Windows on an older computer so I could compare the two.  I really hope that an update for “i” machines will be available in the future.  Thanks for the exposure to how best to use this program.

                          Loved the idea of doing a race with clamps.  So far tightening the tension a click has made it easy to use the boat shuttle successfully, but it’s always good to have a backup!  Thanks Liza

                          Edited to add info on boat shuttle:  I use the boats shuttles made by Handywoman.  They are lighter and slimmer in height than any others I’ve found but still fully fit a loaded bobbin.  The weight matters in how easily the boat shuttle moves across rather than down through the warp.  Here’s the link:  https://www.etsy.com/listing/515690378/rigid-heddle-boat-shuttle-longs-low?ref=yr_purchases

                            I’m confused as to how to tie-up a 4-shaft loom with only 6 treadles. The course materials also shows more treadles than I have available. I’m sure I must be missing something. Help!

                              Wonderful explanation of doubleweave. I’ve done all these techniques on a Rigid Heddle loom with good results. Am so excited to try on my 4 harness loom. Looks like a piece of cake compared to a RH loom. Thank you Jane as always for explaining the difference between a Jack and Counterbalance loom. I’ve had no experience with a C.B. loom but feel with your explanations that if I ever get the chance to work on one that I’ll be able to do the tie-up perfectly.

                              Am looking forward to working with the thinner threads for the next 2 classes. When will the kits be ready for purchase?

                                It took me about the same time as you – done over 3 days. I have my warping board hung on a door and tied to a door knob to keep it from moving too much. Hoping the next ones will go a little faster with more practice.

                                  Can yo provide the standard measurements for a tea towel, napkin and kitchen towel ? I would like to make my samples as practical as possible. Thanks
