Jaya, Depends on what you want to do. It would be helpful on a dobby loom, but is not geared toward jacquard.

I use two crosses. I remove the raddle cross after spreading the warp, before winding on. After winding on I insert the lease sticks in the threading cross. I like my lease sticks to be about 18" from the end of the warp for threading, therefore the distance, which. is about 18". Works for me!

It was woven on the TC-1, & was based on an actual scan of my hands on my flatbed scanner. I modified the image in Photoshop, also applied the weave structures in Photoshop. I think it was the last thing I wove on the TC-1 before selling it. :-(

No doubt it would! I do regret having sold all my end-feed shuttles in the Big Move.

Jane, I'm not sure what they're called (lease stick holders?), but I bought them many years ago and they're very handy for suspending lease sticks in any number of positions during warping, either horizontally or vertically. Would be easy for a woodworker to duplicate. In addition to the rectangular slots, there are holes at both ends for inserting a cord.

Denice, These are manufactured by SoftGrip. They are called therapy weights, and are the 2.5 lb size. Google them, there are lots of suppliers.

Suzan, Unfortunately I no longer have the book. I moved a few years ago, and it got lost in the move. You have stimulated me to try weaving the draft, however. I'll do that next on my 4-shaft loom!

it's not really faggoting. Yes, the panels have no space between. You just go back & forth 3 times before going to the next stitch.
