I wondered about that. I just don’t want to glue the donuts together!  I can try it. Thanks.

Re: 42/2 Ramie

Well, the warp is wound and spread. I’m surprised how hairy it is. It’s beautiful and shiny, and supple. Not at all as wiry and slippery as linen can be. Maybe some tow linen.

But this is def. a bit fuzzy. Fuzzy and shiny at the same time. Go figure. Anyway, it’s making donuts.. the threads are making friends in ways that make it difficult to keep them separated.Lease sticks keep getting stuck.  It’s spread at 35 epi, it was labeled 30-40, but I haven’t started beaming. I’m thinking of opening that up to 30, even though I’m weaving a sort of twill/hybrid.  It’s definitely strong.

Any thoughts on this?

Thanks. I love the butter knife test. This is unbleached I think, at least it’s off white. I’ll check the twist. Appreciate the advice.

Hi Marie,

Ramie is a bast fiber, like linen, as you probably already know. As such it will behave similarly to linen. I've used ramie as warp with no problems. I almost always size linen warp. I did not find that necessary with the quality of ramie used, which was probably a 30/2 or so.

The question for this yarn in particular is probably much more about how it was spun and processed. So some general rules that, again, you probably already know: Some dyes, particularly dark shades, will cause weakening of the fibers, just sitting on the shelf over a period of years. If you try to snap a length of it between your hands, does it break easily? Does it have a comparable twist to a linen of similar size?  Does it abrade easily? You could rub it back and forth over the edge of a butter knife to test or rub one length against another. 

Good luck!

blooming leaf towel draft

Wondering if anyone happens to have a draft for the blooming leaf pattern scaled to a size for hand towels?  I found photos of one by Evelyn Oldroyd, but no associated draft and apparently she no longer weaves.

Thanks, Beth Burns

Hello
I have a 4 harness Nilius Leclerc circa late 1970s.

The brake is loose

Do I turn the upper or lower part of the turnbuckle to tighten.

Also
Re: your web site......
When I click on Friction Brake information, all I get is that the URL is
NOT FOUND.

Please advise.

Thanks.

Success !!
Thank you.

Unscrew to loosen the wing nut which will ease the tension on the
turnbuckle. Email direct if you’d like to talk on the phone 😊

Emailed Leclerc re: web site problem

Meanwhile....
The English instructions from Leclerc say to unscrew the wing nut and
then
the turnbuckle.

Which way?

I noticed that the information in French appears to be more detailed.
Tried using a computer translator and received bizarre, nonsensical
phrases.

Any hints are appreciated.

I too would like Clotilde’s email address.  We really enjoyed having her visit Australia even though we were not up to her standard of teaching at the time.  The double Two-Tie Unit Weaves is one of my favourite go to books.

I had one for Clotilde a few years back. At that time. I believe, Eunice was in a care situation, but both could communicate. Laurie Autio had some contact with Eunice.

Thank you to everyone who contacted me off list. 

Barbara June Gordon sent me the following information and asked me to share it here as she can't post on Weavetech although she can read the posts. 

Eunice died in 2019.
She was an extraordinary woman and I deeply value the times I got to interact with her and benefit from her knowledge at meetings of the Springfield Weavers Guild.
Here is a link to her obituary:
 
Thanks for the link!

    HI,
     I spent over 20 years doing computer support for the Forest Service.I surely learned the benefit of daily backups.  I don't do that at home, but I do a once a week backup of all my personal files to an external drive.  I use lots of flash dries as well for smaller backups and I am very careful to exit from their use very carefully to ensure that I have closed it properly.'Jean B

    I don't trust USB drives as the only copy of data. Having worked with them professionally for as long as they (and floppies going back to 8") have been around, they are not reliable enough for that. Personally I use Dropbox for all my designs. I can edit on one machine and can almost immediately access it on any other, including a phone or tablet anywhere in the world. Nothing is perfect but for my purposes, security is more than adequate. There's also some version history available and easy undelete.  Also, the files can be kept local so even if you are not connected, the files are there. No sync of course but it's not magic

    I pay $120 a year for 2TB of space since I use if for lots of things but you can get 2GB for free, which would hold a lot of WIFs :) 

    There are plenty of other cloud storage services that offer similar features but the main thing I would look for is that it looks like any other folder on your computer. That way it will work with any normal program

    I wouldn’t necessarily blame the USB. I have experienced Weavepoint failing-on-save with a resulting corrupted file, no USB involved. Luckily I had a saved version not too many changes back so I could recreate it.

    I learned this from a computer technician. 

    What is the safest practice to remove a USB?
    Answer. Answer: Click on the Safely Remove Hardware icon on the Windows taskbar. Wait for a message to pop up and then click on “Safely Remove Hardware.” Once a message pops up, you can remove the USB drive.Aug 27, 2021
