Joyce at Rigid Heddle Weaving.com has a terrific website for rigid heddle loom weavers. I first found her when some of her videos came up during a You Tube.com search for rigid heddle weaving. That was quite a while ago and I instantly subscribed to her You Tube channel. I was so enthusiastic about the videos I didn’t realize until TODAY … duh … that she has a very informative web site also.
About 3 or 4 months ago I tried to come up with a simple rug for my DHs bathroom. I cut a king size sheet … old with no matching bottom sheet… into 1 inch strips and began to weave. Weaving it was fine, but it was neither thick enough or tight enough. But… I think I have found the answer.
Joyce has a video up showing how to do pile loop weaving. Perhaps instead of the flat weave that is shown in the picture, the pile loop weave will give enough body to the rug that it will be usable without being too thick. I’ll let you how it comes out.
Have a great week end.. ;o)
