Yesterday was Alyssa first warping lesson. I hooked her on weaving first, then introduced her to warping a loom. It took us all day to wind the warp and thread the reed and heddles. I am now convinced that you ALWAYS need to have two weavers to warp a loom. Her first warp chain.
Her first floor loom.Introduction to untangling and the "school of hard knots". She passed with flying colors.
I think the girl is hooked. We started the day with crunching numbers for her dishtowels. Made 2 trips to the local Hobby Lobby for more red and green thread. Dug through my stash for other project ideas. We warped 6 yards of 458 ends of 8/2 cotton. She wants to do her kitchen in apples, so the red and green will look great. Next week she will come over and we will finish winding the warp onto the back beam. We will warp one of my looms for rugs in overshot. She is going to make a great weaver.
