Learning From The Experts
Today was an exciting day! I was able to get to the studio to work on my sampler piece that I have on my loom. It is a basic sampler with 4 shaft setup. The piece is about 72" long and 10 inches wide. The goal is to weave about 50 different 4-shaft treadle tie ups. This will help me get familiar with the tie up process and the look of the weave because of the new tie ups. The colors I chose were not the best either, but they will do for a sampler. I used a Natural 8/2 unmercerized cotton for the warp and the weft started out with a Sunflower yellow, then switched to a Moss green. The green is a better contrast choice.
