  3 days of intensive learning at SAORI SANTA CRUZ. LaRayne learned sooo much last week!

day one blue's cotton warp.




love the saori free standing warping frame 










~~~~~~~~~~ day 2 white textures! wide and long filling the dividing rod i used a cardboard warp separator to cover the open dividing rod sections  till the cap can be slid on.

Beaming on 

An example from a different warp  of  my hybrid threading the  heddles using  lease sticks and Kenzo System much easier laying the lease sticks on the threading shelf .

 







there were zero threading mistakes!

    1. Thank you. I am always trying new ways to help with the tension in beaming on with the Kenzo system . The lease sticks or dowels ALLEVIATE a lot of snarls and help by less repetition of pulling of the warps. This is how i always beam on my warps now.
