Weaving Wednesday

Good Morning, I have some more to share on my adventure. It began here if you want to catch up. 

So first let me say that class we so fun last night. I got to do something different and very beneficial. I spent the evening warping a loom.

So I started out winding my warp on a warping board. This allowed me to get all my warp threads the same length. Once that was completed it tied off, so it would not become a birds nest when I took it off the board.

Then the process of tying it onto the loom began. I tied each warp thread onto an existing warp thread after this was completed I pulled each small knot through the beater bars. Then with the help from my teacher they were wound onto the warp roller. I was then able to tie my warp threads onto the apron bar and the loom is ready to begin weaving on. 

And I did get to do some weaving this week on a big barn loom, making cotton cloth for making clothing. That was kinda neat and I will say that thing was huge! 

So I have a little surprise. I found me a loom and got to see it. Now of course it is old (1930's), but so am I and a couple of pegs need repaired. Hubs will be all over that. Its got a little(lot) of dust on it. But I think it is beautiful. I haven't brought it home yet but it is mine and again I am so excited. I might be too old for all this excitement. But it sure is FUN!

So next week I get to take a field trip of sort and weave on a different loom than before. I will be sure and get some good pictures. I get so involved with "doing" that I forget to take the pictures.

If any of you weave I would love to hear all about it. How you got involved, what you weave on, what you make?

And don't forget to check back next week for "Weaving Wednesday".

  1. Neat. A weaving loom is on my list for when the kids move out and I can actually have a "craft" room here.


I try my best to read every comment. And I love hearing from you all.
