Greetings everyone Just wanted to post a quick update on my carpet project! It’s been a busy couple of weeks, but I believe I’ve been able to warp my loom in a way that I’m kinda happy with. Using a warping board, I created sheaves of warp that were then fit directly onto the warping bars which sit in a notched-groove beveled into the cloth beams. You can actually see this in the photo - the bottom cloth beam is positioned so that the notch and bar are visible. I still have some issues with uneven tension and I have a few ideas of how I might remedy this in the future. In a previous post ..read more

Getting a Glimarka Pysslingen ready - Texsolv heddles

Hi Everyone. I won this loom at the MDSW auction last year and just got it home this year. I've been cleaning it and getting it ready to weave. This loom is the predecessor of the Glimarka Victoria. It came with Texsolv heddles already installed, which I've been removing and washing. It's getting a bit of a glow up with springs on the harnesses instead of rubber bands. This is my first 4 harness loom. I've used a rigid heddle and inkle looms in the past. Do the Texsolv heddles go on so that the eye is turned sideways facing the sides of the loom or twisted so the eye faces flat toward the wea ..read more

I was flipping through the weaving books at my local used book store, and this page immediately popped out at me because I own both of the looms pictured in the section about table looms! I had to buy it and I’m looking forward to reading it! Anyone else have this book? submitted by /u/z123carleigh [visit reddit] [comments ..read more

Hemming woven towels

I finally bought a new (to me) sewing machine with the intention of hemming my stash towels I’ve been cranking out. At this point, sewing feels harder than weaving! ? Can someone please recommend a thread type/weight/??? that would be appropriate for 8/2 cotton plain weave at 18 epi? I’m confused by all the options. submitted by /u/randomize42 [visit reddit] [comments ..read more

Can't loosen my tension

I have a schacht inkle loom. I'm very new to this and have only made one 2' band. I'm currently working on my second and the tension wasn't tight enough so the band was moving as i beat. I tried to loosen the knob,know, using the rubber handles of my can opener as a lever, rocking it forward and backwards but it just will not budge. Is there a trick other than waiting for my husband to come home and rescue me? Can I spray it with lube without damaging it? It did feel quite tight for the first bad but I assumed it would loosen up with use, not get worse. submitted by /u/lungbuttersucker [visi ..read more

I want to buy a rigid heddle loom

But I have to ask some questions first. English is not my first language, so please be understanding. From what I've seen available in Poland, Kromski's Harp rigid heddle loom looks the best for me. It comes with a size 8 heddle and I could buy a size 10 or 12 later. It's quite a lot of money for me, so I have to choose well. What can you make with a size 8 heddle? What size of yarn is the best for each size of the heddle? I am most interested in making towels and linens (to make canvases, I am a painter), so I will probably buy size 12 heddle too. From what I researched, there is only one st ..read more

I'm a newbie about to jump off a cliff...

Hi fiber friends. So, I spontaneously got the weaving bug. I've been knitting pretty heavily for about the past 7 years, and I've made a few handspun yarns. So fiber is not foreign to me. Here's where I'm at, mostly just looking for confirmation that I'm not making a huge mistake or missing something. I want to make scarves or other smaller projects like towels, small tote bags, snack mats, etc. I want something that could be considered a lap loom, if a bit on the larger side. Think 12-18" (I think 20" would be pushing it.) I'm pretty sure I want 2 heddles. I will probably want to try weavin ..read more

I feel like this is almost a meme at this point, because I've lurked here for some months and see situations like mine come up pretty regularly but: I inherited a floor loom and I'd like to actually learn to use it. It came to me in this condition (pictured, that warp is approximately 40 years old), and I suspect there's something wrong with the loom. If you look, the first set of bars connected to the pulleys are higher on the left side than the right, and the shafts aren't at the same resting point. There's several youtube content creators with this loom or with the loom that came out a ..read more
