Part of every weaver’s job is to manage the moving parts – the beater bar, the levers/treadles, and the shuttle. All those components need to work in harmony to create a functional piece of fabric.

So in this episode, I’m walking you through 2 options on how to organize your moving parts. I’ll talk you through the method I use and discuss why I do it. Then, I’ll present the other option and you can decide for yourself which one is the best fit for you!

Enjoy episode 84 of A Handwoven Experience.
