Hi to all members.
I thought we should start up a new thread so that those of us who are, or used to be ,active backstrap weavers can talk a little about what kind of looms and tools we use. I know that several members have never tried backstrap weaving and would like to see what it takes to get set up whether that means making your own loom or buying a kit.
Do you use string heddles, a rigid heddle or some other kind of ingenious device? What do you use for a backstrap and where do you tie up your loom? How do you prepare your warp? Do you sit on the floor or chair or do you kneel?
Please photos too if you can.
