  • Can I weave a tartan (yardage) on a four harness loom?

      Hi there Philippa,

      You can weave a tartan yardage on a four harness loon. I have seen it even on a rigid heddles although that would only make plain weave (unless you use 2 sets of heddles) and I think it should be a twill.

      Thanks for inaugurating this new page 😀
      Have a good day

  • Thanks Jacqueline….now I just have to find the “pattern”?

    I am part of a non profit seniors crafting group in Vancouver …
    And we were given a 4 harness table loom…and there are a few pieces missing.
    I used a 4 harness loom long ago in 1980…and can’t remember a lot…
    One of the reasons I am writing to you is to ask for your expertise.
    There are a few pieces missing…and I was wondering if someone could help us with checking out the loom and guiding us to bring the loom up to date so that we can try and use it.
    My intention is to warp it and let people weave a sampler and maybe someone would like to use it to make a project.
    Thank you in advance.

    PS…I live in Cloverdale…so am able to bring it to the Surrey museum.

    Also on Craigslist…there is a floor loom that someone is giving away for free…
    I thought that your group could make use of it.

    I was a member in the 90’s. I moved in 2000 and lived in Indonesia and Botswana. We moved back a year and a half ago. I am not sure if I can keep my looms. I have a 60 inch Glimakra and a 40 inch Schact Spindle. I will decide this week which one I can fit in my space. The other I would like to donate to the guild.
    I have Handwoven back to the early 70’s. Would you be interested in these? I also have a library of books and boxes of yarn.
    I look forward to hearing from you.
