Issue 11 Volume 3 No 1 Spring 2002 Complementary Plain Weave

I copied information about the selvedges from the warp-face projects into the balanced projects by mistake. The text should read:

Page 8: right column:

Weaving: ...(place 5 ends in the dent rather than 4).

Page 12: center column:

Weaving: ...(place 5 ends in the dent rather than 4).

Page 15: left column:

Weaving: ... there will be 3 ends in the dent rather than 4 (the last dent on the left has 2 ends in the dent).

Issue 16 Volume 5 No 1 Spring 2004 Monk's Belt and Bias Cloth Strips

Page 10: Puffy Tea Cozy and Striped Napkins

Tiny error: The Total Warp Ends should be 398 (not 402).

Issue 17 Twill and Basket Weave Combined

Page 8:

Under Weaving: Some copies should say "Start the shuttle at the left side to catch both selvedges."

Page 10:

Some copies need a Warp Color Order for Twill Mosaic Towels.

Page 12:

In some copies, the threading draft has a few ends of shaft 3 shown on the wrong line.

Issue 19 Log Cabin and Where It Leads

Page 6: Bamboo Shoots Rep Placemats

Tiny error: The Warp Color Order should end with 1 dark blue-green (not 1 light green).

Issue 20 Danish Medallion and Accents for Plain Weave

Page 6: Spring Flowers Towels

At the bottom of the left column, the last line should read
…2 1/2" raspberry, 2" black-edged white, 2 1/2" green plus 1 1/4" hem in green.

Issue 23 Barleycorn

Proofreader was loafing!

Page 2:

In the tie-up of the draft, two treadles are the same by mistake—the right-hand treadle of the pair should lift shafts 2 and 3.

Page 3:

Photo caption at left should end
…the back of the fabric shows the same pattern in warp-floats (not weft-floats).

Page 5: Special Selvedges for Barleycorn.

The end of the third paragraph should read: . . .add a tie from shaft 5 to each of the three pattern treadles: 3-4-5-, 2-4-5-, and 2-3-5, as well as the tabby treadle 2-3-4-5.

Page 6: Yellow Barleycorn Mats or Towels.

Total Warp Ends should be 231 (not 229) and the Heddle Count near the draft should show 32 ends on shaft 3 for a total of 231 ends.

Page 10: Blue Barleycorn Mats or Towels.

In the Complete Threading Draft, every other thread should be on shaft 1. Add a shaft-1 thread to the right edge of the topmost "continued" line.

Also, the treadling doesn't match the photo. In the Profile Treadling, omit one of the ABC sets on each side of the middle of the draft. (See corrected profile treadling just below.)

Page 12: Wool Barleycorn Throw.

The treadling doesn't match the photo, the same error as on page 10. In the Profile Treadling, omit one of the sets of ABC on each side of the middle of the draft, the same change shown on page 10.

Page 14: Two-Color Barleycorn Scarf.

The Total Warp Ends should be 143 (not 141) and the Heddle Count near the draft should show 32 ends on shaft 3 and 71 ends on shaft 1 for a total of 143 ends.

Issue 26 How to Turn a Draft

Page 4: Holiday Runner.

The tie-up weaves the fabric wrong side up. Use this tie-up instead.

       Runner

Also, in the Heddle Count near the draft, the number of ends on shafts 3 and 4 are switched.

Page 12: Cameo Napkins.

The treadling for the Band should start and end with 2 shots lifting shafts 2-3, 2 shots lifting shafts 3-4 (not 1-2).

Issue 27 Baby Blankets

Page 8: Atwater's Basket Weave Baby Blanket.

Under Variations: The easiest way to change the size of the blanket it to use a multiple of 18, the number of ends in one threading repeat.

Issue 28 Swivel, Petit Point, & Related Laces

Page 6: Wine Bottle Holder.

The Hoosier lace section of the treadling sequence should have Gs and not Ps. Use lime green weft only.


Page 15:

At the top of the left column, which is continued from page 10, the first sentence should end with
…and the rest of the length lattice (not swivel).

Issue 29 Waffle Weave

Page 10: Waffle Weave Throw

The tie-up should be


Correct tie-up for Waffle Weave Throw

Page 15: Pistachio Waffle Scarf

Change Warp Length to 2 3/4 yd to weave a scarf with On-Loom Length of 60" or more and Finished Length of 60" plus 2" fringe at each end.
