Threading Without Mistakes – Tip No. 2 – Stagger the Heddles

This is an excerpt from my book, Weaving for Beginners, on page 67 in the threading section. I find it invaluable and use it every time (I’m threading around 100 ends per inch usually).

Stagger HeadlesStagger the Heddles
Push all your counted-out heddles to the left (for righthanders) and stagger the heddles on the shafts so you can find which one you need easily as shown in Figure 178.
Left-handers would stagger them the same way, but have them over on the right side of the shafts.

  1. Thank you for remembering that
    1) left handed weavers exist
    2) we southpaws do things a bit differently at times.
