Easy-Peasy Direct Warping Did you ever think you could warp your loom in 20 minutes?
Direct warping is fast, simple, and provides great results. All you will need is your rigid-heddle loom, a warping peg, ways to secure both to a table, and voila! This works best with projects that don't need to be an exact length and uses one type of yarn (usually a worsted weight).
Liz's Favorite—Indirect Warping
This technique makes use of a warping board, but don't worry—Liz will walk you through it. Along with threading the heddle, she will also show you how to tie on to the apron rods. This style of warping takes a little more time, but works best when making exact lengths, working with lots of colors, or using multiple types of yarns in your warp.
Warping With Two Rigid-Heddles
Sometimes you want fine cloth, but your rigid-heddle doesn't have the right dent count.
With two heddles you can get twice the amount of dents in an inch.
Liz will demonstrate how to double the amount of yarn you place on the warping board. Plus she will show you how to thread two heddles.
