This summer's "Summer & Winter" weaving continued - moving heddles
Moving heddles involves removing the heddle frames from the loom, counting out heddles, unhooking the heddle bars and sliding the heddles off one frame and onto another that needs them. Here are the frames removed from the loom and all piled onto a table.
Part of the job is done, and that's counting out how many heddles are already on each shaft frame. Last time I moved heddles, I put a piece of masking tape with how many heddles were on each shaft. Those are the pieces of tape on the left. The ones in the middle are just the shaft number (1 through 16).
