Winding a Warp and Using a Paddle
This first book in the series guides you through every step of planning a project and measuring the warp threads. You will learn how to prepare your loom for weaving -- beginning at the back of the loom. You will learn how to beam on, thread, and sley the reed. You'll find chapters on sectional beaming, tying on new warps, knots, and adjusting jack, counterbalance and countermarch looms. There are step-by-step sections at the ends of chapters for quick reference at the loom, after you have read the full-length instructions. There are many illustrations so that the parts of the loom can be clearly seen.
