Along with the weaving machine – the loom – are additional pieces of equipment that plays a role in the process of preparing the threads for actual weaving.
In this short video, I give you a brief introduction to some of those tools.
Modern weavers use much the same pieces today, only made with modern techniques for the 21st-century weaver.
What I share here are authentic ( albeit some with modern repairs to make them usable ) Colonial period tools that would have been employed by the 18th and 19th-century weaver, whether that weaver was a housewife providing textiles for the home, or a professional tradesperson weaving for a living.
