I've bought a Kromsky minstrel, unfinished wheel that I paint and lacquered.

I think that selvedges are that field where handweaving can learn from power looms and machine weaving. I use that gold rule: exactly double the weft yarns for 1 cm on the left and on the right.
I.e.: I've a plain weave, with a sley reduction of 4 epi, then I'll prepare the selvedges as 8 epi. It works, and works quite well with mostly yarns. you can also insert one or two strings of bigger (or stronger) yarn and weight them more than the rest of the weft..
try and try, is a good rule too.

Thanks!

Thankyou all for the compliments, the twill isnot an undulating one, it's just a mistake of beating and tension in the warp. unfortunately  It wasn't a really well balanced twill.  Undecided

bye!

I've recently joined a public fair of bio-eco textiles, fibers and products, where I was wanted for a public demonstration of 4 harnesses weaving.
Here's my stand

well, I caught the occasion to try on the hard way my little project concerning the production of a little loom that everyone can operate: the T-Loom.
 I've tested it on the hard way, I said: I put my looms in the dirty, joying, happying and working hands of CHILDREN!

here's some photos:

isn't it nice?

It's a plainwave, with two color weft and same two colors warp, so I think I can call it a Plaid, can't I?

my very compliments for that bunch of useful things you did with your handwoven cloth. they are very beautiful and your use of twills and zig-zag weaving is never baroque, it's so smooth and plain of harmony.

keep weaving!
