Hi, well here is my new Klass and Gessmann weaving frame.

Looks good on the picture, wish it looked that good on my desk.  Unfortunately there were very little instructions that came with it, and this is the first time I have ever wanted to use something  like this.  Please can anyone help me? How do I warp it, what do I use to warp it?  Looks pretty simple on the picture, not so simple for the complete muppet who bought it – ie me! Looking forward to your suggestions…

  1. I can’t find a photo that shows another view of it but it looks kind of like a little rigid heddle loom to me. You’d warp it up and down though the slots top and botom, threading the warps though the slot of the “magic heddle” Turning the heddle should open the different sheds though which you would then push the shuttle.

    Does this seem to help? I’ve always wanted to try one of those type of heddles. do let us know how it works.

  2. Realise this is an old post, but did you ever find out how? I too have this kind of frame loom and was trying to find instructions on how to warp it. Or more to the point how to warp it with the heddle bit in place.
    I’d also like to know how you’d use it to do longer length pieces, which I believe should be possible because the bits at the end can be rotated to ‘wind’ it up IYSWIM.
    I’m only used to simple card frames, and the last one I had with a heddle was the old fisher price one, which I kind of wish I still had.
