It might be that I love my shuttles so much that I want to use two at once.
be it balanced or weft faced.
(Four selvedge Warping Instructions here).
Naturally, my inner Storymaker is busy thinking up things to do with all these pieces of cloth,
but for now I'm letting the Luminist have her way,
--at least, as much as I can.
Thanks so much to everyone who wrote in about their inner helpers last week-- goats and spinning wheels and as yet unnamed beings. Lovely.
ALSO --anyone who ordered a copy of The Backstrap Dialogues before the last few days, (digital or paper), please note that at the bottom of page 29 I put the wrong web address for Laverne Waddington's wonderful blog about backstrap weaving. It is a fantastic resource and I want to make sure people know how to get there. So here is a link. And here is the correct address so you can write it in your zine for future reference: https://backstrapweaving.wordpress.com/
I contacted Laverne the moment I noticed the error and she has been most gracious!
Astonishingly, there really isn't all that much specific information about backstrap weaving(and almost none that I could find about using it for tapestry or gauze -- thus my zine),
so it is worth getting it right.
