Susan Poague's Blog

Updated: Jan 25

Susan's latest post published in her Iowaweaver Blog is dated August 22, 2020. She is re-exploring the joys of weaving circles and writes how her Turned Taquete draft of circles had a very popular outcome as seen in woven circles produced by many weavers who posted on FB and elsewhere.

She discusses the importance of a liftplan in visualizing the weave structure:

(Quoted from her Aug 22 posting.)

" [A liftplan is a treadling scheme which is particularly useful for floor looms having a direct tie-up, one shaft per treadle; for dobby looms, mechanical or computer; and for table looms. The tie-up part of the layout is either empty or appears as a straight diagonal line.] I am a very visual person, and as it turns out, I find that liftplans are infinitely better for visualizing a weave design. Consider the Turned Taqueté draft in liftplan mode:"
