Good Afternoon, I am a brand new weaver and have just received as a gift a 45"LeClerc Counterbalance Floor Loom. There are no classes available in my area I know very little about this loom so I am learning as I go. This loom came with a sectional warp beam attached. For my first project I would like to weave a scarf and from what I have been reading the sectional warp beam should be removed and the warp attached to the beam directly. There is no apron for the warp beam so I am wondering how I should be attaching the warp to the beam. The sectional warp beam had 20-30 cords(each ~12"cord had a small ring at the end) attached to it via a metal rod. Could these somehow be used in attaching the warp to the beam? I have looked on the LeClerc site and have not been able to find an answer (although it could be there and I am just not understanding it). Thank you for any help. I am enjoying the whole process so far and am excited to actually see everything set up and ready to weave!!
