PDF Book No. 2 — At Long Last

Book 2 coverI am so happy that the PDF is finally ready for my Book #2, 4th Edition, “Warping Your Loom & Tying On New Warps”.  Frankly, it is the book with the most “meat” of my reference books in the series, Peggy Osterkamp’s New Guide to Weaving. It has been out of print for some time. I went over the entire book, page-by-page and made minor changes that had come to my attention in the 8 years it was in print. I edited things here and there to make them more clear and added a a completely new chapter on how to use the Warping Wheel.

There are comprehensive chapters on adjusting looms,sectional beaming, tying on new warps, and includes beaming back-to-front. There are references to techniques unique to the Ahrens Looms.

I have just started a website for the looms that Jim Ahrens built, how they work and how to use them. I’ll keep you posted.

  1. Hi Peggy,
    I have your books in my library, including “Weaving For Beginners”, “Warping Your Loom & Tying On New Warps”. They are so inspiring and informative that I refer to them often. I have a sectional beam, with 2″ sections. And now I am trying to figure out how to divide the sections to 1″ but not sure if that will work. A draft calls for 24 wpi, and I have a spool rack that holds 40 spools. If dividing the sections to 1″, then I can warp 24 wpi in each 1″ section. But if it is not possible to divide the sections, how can I wind that extra 8 spools and warp in a 2″ section? I know another spool rack is the answer, but is there another way to warp 48 ends to the sections?
    Thank you, Susan C.

  2. Warping your loom and tying on new warps. Is there any possibility I might get this in a book? I have such problems seeing on a monitor or screen

    Thank you
