Warped for Good Is Changing the Sett!

Change is an essential element of weaving. How many times do we change the warp on our looms? Or change the sett, the pattern, the color sequence? Change is the rhythm of life.

Weaving 8-shaft broken twill on the Julia is a relaxing way to wind down the day.

After next week, April 11, Warped for Good is starting in a new direction. Instead of posting exclusively on Tuesdays I am switching to a more spontaneous approach. I will keep sharing highlights from my weaving journey, enjoying, as always, your thoughtful feedback in the comments.

Next week you will see the completed small tapestries from my hand-built loom. Soon after that, look for finished spaced rep rag rugs from the Standard. And the crazy critter napkins that are coming up on the drawloom will show my not-so-serious side. There is no shortage of weaving projects around here! I am looking forward to robust interaction with you as we enter this new rhythm.

Six out of twelve placemats are woven. It’s fun to think about seeing the placemats all spread out on the dining room table.

I haven’t decided what to put on the Julia after the placemats are finished. Is there a weaving project you’d like to see? I’m open to suggestions.

IMPORTANT INFORMATION: Warped for Good emails are ending after April 11. Please bookmark this site so you can come right here and enjoy this weaving journey with me. Think about setting a reminder for yourself to come and see what’s happening on these looms.

May you know when to change the sett.

  4. Thank you for the heads up.

    When we moved to NE Wisconsin, all the connections to post on my blog went away. …. Now that we finally have starlink those connections, such as transferring photos from camera (now cell phone) have progressed and have to be re-learned. I realized how much time the posting took away from my textile fun.

    I will always enjoy any sharing you do on line. Realizing there is a finite time each day to do everything desired.

    Holy week is a great time for change. Blessed Easter.

    1. Hi Nannette, I’m glad to have your input. Writing posts for this blog has been a joy for me. I’m glad I will be able to continue doing that. It will be interesting for all of us to find out what that pace will look like after next week. You can expect some impromptu posts!

      Blessed Easter,

  5. Thank you for your inspiring messages over the years. They surely helped especially during trying times!

    1. Hi Linda, It is reassuring for me to know that you have found solace here during trying times. It’s amazing what the Lord can do with the little we offer. I can write a few words and he can take them to someone’s heart.

      Thanks for being in this journey with me,

    1. Hi Ann, I am blessed by your kind words. Hopefully, we’ll keep going along weaving, and maybe have room for a few surprises.
