Hello friends, I have an 8S jack loom from Harrisville Design with a weaving width of 22 in. What is my maximum warp width, including floating selvages? If I sley 21.5 inches is that pushing it?
I have not seen weaving designs that join panels to make a wider piece, such as was formerly done, joining panels to make coverlets. Has anyone experience with it working out well? It seems unlikely the join would be invisible. I wonder about using a design element to conceal the seam, perhaps a textured yarn or stripe.
I'm aware of the double-width method but would like to try something simpler first.
Any advice for a new/lapsed weaver?
