Are you ready? Let’s talk spacers! Both the comfort and the confusion with weaving lies in the fact that there are SO many ways to do it! And today’s topic is no exception.

Yep, I’m talking about spacers. At the start of a project, the warp yarns are all bunched together and we want them to be evenly spaced apart. So in episode 114, I’m giving you some ideas on how to achieve this result and get you weaving! ‘Cause that is the good stuff, isn’t it?

Not only will I give you ideas on how to spread out your warp yarns, I’ll show you how I tackle it. Then, it’s just up to you to decide how you want to approach your next project! You’ve got this. Happy Weaving!

Show Notes –

History of toilet paper – Okay, this is a step out into left field, but in the video I share that I use toilet paper for my spacers – which got me thinking about what I actually know about this common, everyday item. Thus, I present to you, a link all about the history of toilet paper! (You know, a little diversion never hurt anyone, right? I’m just trying to help expand your base of trivial information. You’re welcome.)

The Magic of Thrums – As I pondered what episode might best relate to this one, it occurred to me that the knots you just made at the beginning of your project may very well become the thrums left over at the end. Thus, I’m tossing you back to episode 91, “The Magic of Thrums”! You can watch it right here.
