Hi everyone! This may sound like a stupid question, but I've looked everywhere else and I couldn't find the answer. How do you weave in the ends after you finish a project? I don't want a fringe on the end, and that is the only way to finish a project I could find. I know their has to be a way. Thanks in advance.

I think if you sewed along the end of the piece wit ha sewing machine and it was secure then you could cut the ends and then hem it so the finished edge is neater

While it is on the loom there is a technique called hemstitching http://www.interweave.com/weave/projects_articles/9-07_BegCorner.pdf
There is a technique for warp faced fabrics, tapestries, and rugs called needling-in. You take the warp thread and a yarn needle and thread it though the warp space next to it for an inch or two. Pull it until it is flush with the weaving. You can do this to every other warp thread or to each one.
You may want to ask at http://groups.yahoo.com/group/Weaving/ they know so much @_o
