      thanks Jane for the prompt answer; I figured it had to do with the threading of the treadles but I couldn’t envision it.

      I wanted to make really great tea towels for gifts and didn’t want to screw them up!

        Kathy: thanks for the tips. I figured the shelf would be the best place, too. When you made your raddle, what spacing did you use? 1/2 inch?

          Kathy:

          If you don’t mind sharing? Where did you put your raddle on your Saori loom for warping.

          I have a 4 shaft sx60 loom.

            Thanks Kathy for the help! Lease sticks it is.

              I forgot to ask: did you use lease sticks to warp the Saori loom?

                Yes removing the breast beam on the Saori loom is not an option only the reed is removable so threading and sleighing isn’t fun. I bought this loom as it’s foldable and portable but is also meant to be used for folks with physical disabilities (wheelchair bound or limited mobility). Hence the elaborate and expensive method of using a removable square cardboard tube on the additional warp roller placed on a separate table top with harness holder and wooden cross holder for threading. If I had really researched the loom I wouldn’t have bought it because of these features  but the upside is one can begin plain weave weaving after a quick set up out of the box and pre-wound warps on cardboard tubes. Nothing like spontaneous shopping! but good to know you successfully warp the loom from back to front. That’s my next steep learning curve! Have you tried the Saori method with extra equipment for warping?
