Lifting Plans and Tie-Ups
I have purchased the The Best of Weaver’s The Magic of Doubleweave and Jennifer Moore’s The Weaver’s Studio: Doubleweave, and I am new to doubleweave. In Jennifer Moore’s book, she uses the term “treadle lifts.” I have both 4-shaft and 8-shaft table looms. Can you tell me what the lifting plan would be for doubleweave? I thought I would first start with the simple 4-shaft samples first.
There is no specific lifting plan or tie-up for doubleweave. They will vary according to the threading draft and the shafts that must be raised to achieve the desired interlacement. Jennifer Moore does give tie-ups in her book, so on your table looms, you will move the levers for the shafts that must go up for each row instead of stepping on a treadle.
