I'm back to weaving (almost) after a 10-year hiatus. I used to own a Glimakra Std, now I have a 100 cm Ideal. I am curious about the other methods of tie-up -- I know of three:
Vav Stuga method
Madelyn Van Der Hoogt Method
Tying up your loom from the back (no author listed, but she references [This idea is not new. It can be found in: Straub, Marianne. Hand weaving and Cloth Design. New York: Viking Press, 1977. p.33. Collingwood, Peter. A Simplified Tie-Up for Double Countermarch Looms, Quarterly Journal of the Guilds of Weavers, Spinners and Dyers. No. 49, March 1964.]
I believe I used the Van Der Hoogt method on my standard.
Does anyone use any of these other methods? I would like to hear pros/cons before I tie up my loom!
