A tip for tying onto the front apron rod in weaving

I don't know where I picked this tip up, but I'd like to thank that person. Tonight I tied my warp onto the front apron rod of the loom, and I remembered the tip I had heard to swap the edge threads in the sections when I'm tying on. Like so:

Why? When you go to weave the header, look how quickly the warp arranges itself into place!!

Header woven, ready to go. And very little waste of warp. I love this trick.


  1. What a good idea! I have to try this! Thank you!

    1. It takes just a little bit of extra fiddly time, but I find the pay off worth it. :)

  2. About to warp. Thank you for this tip. I will add it to my store of lore .
