Imagine being able to create different areas of pattern across the width of your cloth without having to worry about color blending, changing the tie-up, or using multiple shuttles! You can do it with supplemental warps!

Supplemental warps can also take your cloth into the third dimension with piqué, Bedford cord, and pile weaves. In this video, master weaver and teacher Deb Essen introduces you to weaving with supplemental warps without the need for a second warp beam.

In this video, you'll learn:

  • How to turn drafts to design textiles using supplemental warps
  • How to warp your loom using supplemental warps – no second back beam required!
  • An easier way to thread supplemental warps
  • Tips, tricks, and techniques for weaving with supplemental warps

Deb teaches you the whole process from design to warping and weaving supplemental warp fabrics, with tips and tricks throughout the video. Many of the designer fabrics you see are woven this way. Now you can bring all the design possibilities of supplemental warps to your own loom.

About the Host:

At 9 years old, Deb Essen watched a weaver perform "magic" on a loom for the first time. Enticed by that memory, she finally took her first weaving class in 1993, and she’s been exploring weaving ever since. In 2004, Deb achieved the Certificate of Excellence in Handweaving, Level 1 from the Handweavers Guild of America. In 2011, she was inducted into the Montana Circle of American Masters in Folk and Traditional Art. In addition to running her business dje handwovens, creating and designing kits for handweavers, Deb teaches at conferences and guilds, nationally and internationally. Her exploration of supplemental warp weaves led her to write Weaving with Supplemental Warps: Techniques and Projects, available from Interweave.

Review by OsamaSharaf (Posted on 11/29/2017)
I am a fairly adept weaver that has always wanted to know more about supplemental warp. I was very excited to find this video, but was frustrated with the amount of information about very basic weaving techniques in the video. I believe the video could have been shortened by an hour, or Ms. Essen could have actually woven more of the sample she had, and talked about other techniques using supplemental warp. It is difficult to wade thru what I don't need to find what I do need. Review by Gina (Posted on 12/12/2015)
This video is not what it purports to be. In the beginning of the video, the viewer is enticed with beautiful woven pieces. The video description says that the viewer will enjoy "100+ minutes of watch-and-learn lessons to take your cloth into the third dimension with piqué, Bedford cord, and pile weaves."

What you REALLY get is show and tell of all the things you COULD do, but NONE of how to do them. What is REALLY on the video is 100+ minutes of warping technique, only the very smallest part of which involves warping and threading a supplemental warp. [Side note: if you need to learn to warp a loom, I highly recommend Weaving Well by Madelyn Van der Hoogt. It is truly a "best practices" video, where this one is not.]

In fact, you don't really even get a good view of the piece that the author is weaving so as to evaluate how it is coming together. All in all, it appears to me that this book is a very long trailer to encourage you to buy the author's upcoming book.

Good information but no projects
I found this video to be full of very useful information and demos although for an intermediate weaver it moved along a bit slowly. Two drawbacks for me:
1. Ms Essen only shows techniques for warping back to front, although she says you can also do it front to back. Would have been helpful to include some tips for the differences one might encounter with the other warping method.
2. All of the previous videos I've purchased in this price range included projects to try. This one recommends that you purchase Ms. Essen's book to find projects. At least 4-5 projects should have been included for the price.
3. The supplemental weaves that produce pile were mentioned but these techniques were not covered at all. Again, it was recommended that you purchase another video that will cover these.

Very Informative video
I am a fairly new weaver. I have heard people talk about weaving with a supplemental warp but I didn't really understand how it was done. Deb goes through the process step by step from warping the loom to the actual weaving. She also gives you a lot of 'tips & tricks' along the way. After watching the video, I now feel confident I could weave a pattern that called for a supplement warp. Review by Louise (Posted on 9/14/2015)
