  • Hi! I’m so happy to be registered for the class that begins this Thursday, August 27th. I’ve not yet received an email with the details of the class; I’m checking here because I have recently had some difficulties with my email. My partner built my loom yesterday; I’ve oiled it and will give it a second coat of Danish oil today. I’ve purchased the items for weaving that were attached to the back of loom plan; but have absolutely no idea how they will be used. The mystery is so exciting! At this point I do have a question though: what should we use for the warp yarn? I’m so looking for to hearing from you and eagerly awaiting the first day of class!
    Thanks so much,
    Debbie Hoover

    • Debbie, I’ll get that information out to you this morning! That will tell you how to download your textbook. Review the list of warping supplies on page 18 and then let’s talk!

      • Hi Mary,

        I wasn’t able to reply to your email; it was returned with a communication error message.

        Thanks so much for all of the great information. I’ve ordered some wool warp; hopefully it will come soon. If it doesn’t make it by class time, I’ve got LOTS of acrylic weaving yarn that I can practice with. I was just recently gifted 80 3-5lb cones!

        I will have to get the turnbuckles; so happy I waited to do that as I was about to purchase them with two closed ends. I haven’t seen in the videos where the galvanized wire is used; but I haven’t read that portion of the book in its entirety yet either. So I suppose I will learn what it’s used for. I was waiting for that purchase as I didn’t see it in Big R yesterday. I might have to go into town to Lowes for that.

        I have used Zoom on numerous occasions and am very familiar with that tool. I am confident that I should be able to connect once the link is sent out. Will you send that out a couple of days prior to class?

        There seems like there is lots to learn and I’m very excited and happy that I have this opportunity. Looking forward to Thursday!!

        Thanks again for sending all of the information so quickly.
