Warping up the loom

Yeah, this bit isn’t as interesting to look at …

But ‘dressing’ the loom is incredibly important - it’s the backbone, and the start of every single handwoven product that I make *

And to be honest, it usually takes longer to set up the loom than it does to actually WEAVE.

But it’s all part of the process.

When I started handweaving, I hated this part … but now I see it as a meditation, new beginnings, concentrating on getting it right with every. single. thread.

Why? Because if just ONE of those threads are out of place, I have to either fix it, or start all over again.

If you’re a weaver … do you like this part?
