The all new Saori Kenzo warping / threading system for saori looms

For a few weeks now I have been using and teaching the new Kenzo Jo Saori warping and threading system at the studio.  what it does is makes warping, beaming on and threading faster, more efficent, and you can do it all AWAY FROM THE LOOM ON A TABLE TOP!





 The Kenzo DIVIDING ROD  is extremely well made and allows for a smooth comfortable table top, not hunched over the loom , ergonomic  experience. it will fit any of the saori 60 series looms and adaptors for the Piccolo looms too.



But first lets start at the begining , WINDING THE WARP


 the  amazing Saori warping frame in my Etsy shop  saori 14 yard warping frame click here


 Here is my student Leigh Ann during  a class at the studio learning this new method . this is her  14 yard warp


  The  threading system  is well thought out and well made I  have them for sale in  my Etsy shop BUY THE NEW WARPING SYSTEM HERE  or at the studio.
 I could wind warps and beam on my own  custom ready made warps day after day it is so much fun to do!


  Holding the cross in my hand to place in the well designed dividing rod with cap.
 the warp spread 

  Cap on!  beaming on comfortably from the table top. the ratcht and pawl on the threading holder holding the beam with a crank handle its amazing !
   heddles and reed threaded  right on the table a


  bring the dividing rod over the top of the holder beam weight it

  and either thread your harnesses now or put on a clipping rod to same it as your own unique read made warp to thread at a latter date!  you can use the new threadign / beaming on holder to thread your purchased ready made warps as well. much easier with a weighted water fall of warps tensioned to thread from!







 All ready to weave my 14 yard  18" wide warp !  all wound and  threaded  away from the loom  and finished durning the day light all in one day!  Make an appoinment for a class at  the studio, or email me questions.. 

  reed holders for threading the piccolo loom
 pipe adapters for the threading holder 
yes you can adapat the Kenzo new warping/threading  system  to the piccolo too
there are options in my etsy shop under the variations 

  Here I am beaming on on a table top with the new system and the Piccolo size beam.
  TUBES YOU USE WITH THE CORDS  FOR THIS SYSTEM
 HOW YOU USE THE DIVIDING ROD WITH THE PICCOLO SIZE BEAM



  using the cliping rod and then I  taped the warp  for saving to thread latter.




IF YOU HAVE A EARLIER MODEL PICCOLO 
you can not fit the harnesses into the eariler verson  to thread unless you have the wooden up grade arms installed.
