Taqueté will produce a real black and white checkerboard, requiring ony 4 shafts.

Hi,


Is there an easy way to thread up and tie up to weave a distinct black and white checkerboard?  I have an 8 shaft loom.  Well, I have 4 shaft looms, too, but I think it would work better on an 8 shaft loom.

Has anyone attached a Leclerc Clip Temple to a Baby Wolf Loom?

A two block satin damask could also be done, but it would be a 4 shaft satin, not 5, so not strictly following the rules for satin maybe, but it does work. An example is in "photos", can't post it into this thread I guess.

Doubleweave blocks on 8 shafts are the obvious answer.  Eve Stossel has them discussed towards the bottom of this blog entry https://evasweaving.wordpress.com/category/double-weave-2/.   Just use only black and white, and you'll be all set.

Two blocks of doubleweave, with one layer one and one layer black.

That's what I would do.

Re: Tempo Treadle.....

HI Maryse… the Tempo Treadle has nothing to do with threading….it is simple a means to keep track of a treadling sequence. 

 

You need weaving software to key in the treadling sequence and then magnets underneath the treadles and the gizmo tell you when the proper treadle has been depressed….you still have to watch your pattern and press the right treadle. 

 

You can see more about it at

http://tempotreadle.com/wp-content/uploads/2016/11/TempoTreadleProductManualV2.3.pdf

 

This is a .pdf file of the manual for this product and will show you all about how it is used. 

 

Best,

Re: Tempo Treadle.....

Maryse
 

I do not quite understand how this works.  Can we see pictures?  How is it attached to the loom to make sure that I thread the correct heddle?

How would this function with my non-computer assisted baby wolf? Thank you.

I refer to TempoTreadle as: “It keeps me honest”. For each correct treadle in sequence a beep is issued (similar to the sound of heart monitor in the hospital) and the next treadle is displayed. For an incorrect treadle a deeper (BONK) tone is issued and the correct treadle number is displayed until you depress the correct treadle, then the display will advance to the next treadle number.

If you have other user questions feel free to ask!
---------------------------

How loud are the beeps and bonks? I'm hearing impaired and there are a lot of beep sounds, especially digital ones, that I simply cannot hear any more, such as digital alarm clocks, the digital ring on most phones, etc.

I use TempoTreadle and love it.  I bought it at Convergence this year.  First setup was for my Schacht Baby Wolf (8s) so that I could keep my treadling right while demonstrating weaving (with lots of talking and interruptions).  I liked it so much that I got the sensors and array for my Wolf Pup.  Same display box can be used on multiple looms.   (as Dawne mentioned)

 

I refer to TempoTreadle as:  “It keeps me honest”.  For each correct treadle in sequence a beep is issued (similar to the sound of heart monitor in the hospital) and the next treadle is displayed.  For an incorrect treadle a deeper (BONK) tone is issued and the correct treadle number is displayed until you depress the correct treadle, then the display will advance to the next treadle number.  You will need weaving software to create the .wif file and put it on a chip which is then inserted into the Tempo Treadle display box. 

 

I find that when weaving a new pattern (I seem to always be weaving something new) at first I think about each treadle, with time I learn the sequence and go on autopilot.  Then occasionally me feet forget and do something different or out of order.  Without tempo treadle I usually don’t see the error for another 3 or 4 picks and then have to unweave.  With tempo treadle I know right away.

This is Dawne from LoftyFiber. We certainly hope weavers find the value TempoTreadle provides well exceeds the price.   If we could, we’d love to provide this at a lower cost so that every weaver could own one!  

 

The system unit currently sells for $240. This includes the software, touch screen color display and electronics to support automatic treadle detection.   If you have more than one loom, a single system unit can be shared between looms.  The sensor arrays vary in price depending on the loom.  A table loom sensor array, such as for the Louet Jane costs $125.  Larger looms, and looms with more treadles take more materials and time to build, thus cost more.   We’d be happy to provide you a quote based on your loom and discuss pricing in more detail.  

 

We’re updating some info here, and have a few videos posted:  TempoTreadle Blog

Re: Tempo Treadle.....

I have a Tempo Treadle unit on my 12 shaft Macomber loom and have been using it much of 2016....I was one of the beta testers.  

I have no interest in a loom that is run by a computer, but I did want something that would reduce my treadling errors and help me to weave a more consistent cloth.  

Examples of what I have woven with the TT are on my blog post here:  Been spinning and weaving

You can contact Dawne at TT, or download an informational PDF at TempoTreadle Overview

I've been very happy with the product and the support they've provided.

Years ago a member of our guild made pop-up cone puppets as a fund raiser. They were quite popular.

Check out this Pinterest page to see pop-up puppets. You do not need to be a member of Pinterest to view the page.

I use them in much the same way as Ernie, although mine hold hand-dyed yarn. I wind off just the quantity I need for a planned project from large mill cones of undyed yarn, and need something to wind the newly dyed yarn onto so I can beam a warp.

The last time this topic came up (a few years ago), a production weaver was kind enough to send me a whole box of her empty cones (both plastic and cardboard) and I'm still working my way through those.

I rewind my hand spun yarns on them.  Makes it easier to use my hand spun yarns for weaving.

Good morning group.  I came across Tempo Treadle software last night.  It looks interesting, but seems expensive.  Would love to hear from people who have used it.  


Thanks,

Hi Everyone Carol 


First I am going to say me post pictures I am lucky I can E-mail :>) But I will explain what my sister does with warps pools the best I can. We Had a good dusting of Snow in Wisconsin yesterday. So I will explain a Snow Man. First you paint the warp spool white. Then you add a head a foam ball not to big and you use a needle. stick the needle through the head then through the body of the snow man add a bell to the bottom tie it off.

Then use some felt black to make the coal and the eyes and the orange for the nose. Dye cut some card board and hot glue a couple of layers. The top part of the hat, Then use a thicker paper to make the bottom of the hat so it has a brim. Paint that black. Hot glue it to the top of the head add some Christmas ribbon. Then go and hang it on the tree.


Now, I am going to say this if it was not for my sister making things with my old spools. I would just put them in the trash and out of here with them.

I use them to weight yarns off of the back of my loom. Singles or small groups can be would around one cone. 1, 2, or more cones to add weight go over the first cone to secure it. Easy and fast to unwind as you weave.

Hi Everyone 


My sister has to have all of my empty warp spools and cones of any type, but not plastic.


My sister makes Christmas decorations out of them. She gets more money for the cardboard spools made in to decorations. Then the warp company gets for them full of thread.

I have an adapter for a bobbin winder and used my cones to wind handspun or balled yarn...

No affiliation, but this is like mine and probably from whom I bought mine....
