From Snip to Ship, What Happens?

It usually takes around a week, of very long days, from the time I cut a finished warp off the loom until I ship. What happens in that time? Let me show you the process!

Here we can see the back of my loom and the very end of the warp approaching my heddles. What a beautiful sight for me. A great feeling of accomplishmen and I weave until I can no longer fit my shuttle through my shed, squeezing out every last pick.

Time to cut off and then pull the finished warp from the cloth beam.

Off the loom but still all in one long piece. The fabric is beautiful but still stiff and flat “loom state”.

Each wrap is then carefully separated.

Then taken to sewing machine to finish the raw edges, hem and add the satin tags.
