Twill Table Runner Project Step Three

suzanne 0 Uncategorized

Twill Project 9| Designs by SuzieThe next step is to put the warp i have just made on the loom and thread the heddles
and the reed. The heddles will be threaded according to the pattern i have chosen and
it goes basically like this… whic when you thread a loom you always start in the middle
and thread left and then thread right…. 1,2,1,2,3,4,1,2,3,4,2,1,4,3,2,1,4,3,2,1 and i will
repeat that all the way across on the left side and then reverse and thread the right side.
I will have 4 threads that are not in the heddles and they will be the slevage ends which
gives the peice a nice clean edge when it is done. The loom is now threaded and i have the spacers in for the fringe i will want on the ends and i am ready to begin to weave.

Next week You will be able to see the pattern and more the the striping i was talking about as I weave.
