Hi, I'm a new weaver and I'm really enjoying watching the videos. I've watched all of Season 1 and a bit of Season 4 (I like twills). I am not really sure where to start (I have an 8 shaft Ashford table loom 24" width that I have set up with just 4 shafts to start with). I would like to find a relatively simple beginner project. There don't seem to be any beginning projects in season 1. Jane mentioned that 8/2 cotton would be a good place to start for new weavers. I was thinking maybe the Garibaldi Flats Tea Towel Kit might be a good starting place but making that many towels seems daunting. The twill kit for season 4 looks interesting and it mentions there is enough to make a scarf but I don't see that there is any pattern included.
Have you looked at Season 2 yet, Keith? There is so much fun and learning in Seasons 2 & 3 that will have you designing your own tea towels before long! Jane has designed her Seasons and episodes to build on what you have learned in the previous ones. There are fun projects in most of the episodes and most can be done on a 24” loom. Promise me you’ll go through Seasons 2 & 3 before doing anything in Season 4. You will start to understand the basics while weaving some wonderful projects. I often wish that Jane had been in my life when I first learned to weave using a book 30 years ago!
