Counting and measuring are part and parcel of the weaver’s life. And has its perils.
Has this ever happened to you?
“One thing has become very clear to me. I need to recheck my calculations for almost everything and would love to find someone who would help me recheck them, as needed. For example, I have just wound and threaded an 8 yard warp. Even with attempting to check my own math, I miscalculated the amount of yarn needed ( I forgot to multiply by 8), warp ends needed ( for whatever reason, I added 16 + 16 and got 36 – so all of my calculations were off – from then on) and finally, when I was presleying the warp before winding on, I figured a sett of 8 rather than 16 – luckily I caught that one early on.”
So the question to the guild is “would there be an interest in offering a ‘measure twice, cut once’ service? There would be benefits of having a second set of eyes to review our projects BEFORE the uh-oh moment.
Might you offer your help? Let Joan or Nancy know, please.
