Hi everyone,

I just bought a table loom and tried it out today. Everyone has such neat edges (selvedges?). Just wondering if there's a trick to it.

Try using float threads... add one extra thread on each side of your warp, but don't threadit through the heddles.  when you weave, make sure to loop around the float on each side.  This helps to keep your edges nicer. also, practice a little to see how much weft you need to lay in... if there's not enough, the edges will pull in.  not enough, you'll get bumps.
