Double Your Fun: Doubleweave on a Rigid Heddle Loom

Doubleweave is magical. I bet you never thought that this little loom had the power to weave tubes and fabric wider than your loom or color blocks side by side that aren't tapestry, but it does! With two heddles and a few pick-up sticks you can open up a whole new world of weaving possibilities.

Doubleweave is one of the best reasons to use two heddles on the rigid heddle loom. The designing power of doubleweave is truly amazing. By using this structure you can weave fabric that is connected at one selvedge to create a cloth twice its woven width; connected at both selvedges to create a tube; or weave a cloth where you can interchange the layers to create a dense cloth with tons of patterning power.

In this video, Liz Gipson will walk you through setting up the loom, placing pick-up sticks, weaving a variety of doublweave patterns, and troubleshoot issues you may run into along the way. Doubleweave is one of the best reasons to use two heddles on the rigid-heddle loom. With a second heddle and a little know-how, you can weave fabric twice as wide as your loom's weaving width! You can also make a piece that is connected at both selvedges in a tube or weave cloth with interchanging pattern layers for amazing designs and dense cloth.

In this video, you'll learn:
  • Warping with two heddles
  • Managing pick-up sticks
  • Perfecting selvedges
  • Troubleshooting problems along the way

Double the possibilities of your weaving with this amazing technique! With the down-to-earth, informative approach that has made her previous videos bestsellers, Liz Gipson helps you unlock your rigid-heddle loom's true potential.

DVD, Double wide fun
This is clearly The Best video for learning double-wide weaving. I have many books and illustrations, but watching this video nailed it. Not to say there were many video pauses, and reruns to get it all down, but it works. The only thing I wish it had as she said, her cheat sheet of the sequence used, would have been available written out for us to use. After many stops I got it all written down. Once you get going I can come back to my project(without fear) and know where I'm at to continue. Love it, will definitely recommend this dvd., and plan for many more double- weave projects!

Informative, Interesting, Clear, Well done!
This is the best rigid heddle technique video that Interweave has produced in the last several years.

Liz Gipson clearly knows what she's doing and she communicates in a way that is clear, informative, interesting, and engaging. She explains the techniques presented in a very understandable way. What she says is important, not filler, fluff, or chatter -- the best kind of teacher. The camera angles enhance the techniques being presented; you see what you need to see as it is happening.

Thank you Liz, for such a high quality, informative, no-nonsense video!
