Learning To warp and thread a Saori floor loom class


 The New Saori Kenzo table top beaming on and threading system  verses the beaming on and threading  right on the loom it's self  is truely amazing brilliantly designed piece of equipment ! no more back strain leaning over the loom bending down

 this new system  on the table top you can  stand or sit…. at a  table  top  above

verses the old way on the loom  bent over to beam , get up walk to the front  come back beam on repeat  back and forth   no more doing it  taht way see photo below  of the old way...


 winding a warp on the free standing Saori warping frames is easy


  Here is Vicki and Jen  learning for the first time


 
SAORI WARPING FRAMES HERE




   rolling the warp threads onto a roller is called beaming on




 easy!
 after the warp is beamed on there is the THREADING
again comfortably done right on the table top


 add the harnesses and the reed  that fit into the  kenzo system threading holder and thread  for the table top



  saori inside sets… Vicki and Jen both bought a inside set this way they could change out there weaving in less than 10 minutes with out rethreading there loom! A Saori LOOM exclusive  feature. SAORI INSIDE SETS HERE they also could have brought there harnesses and reed tying rods and cords and cardboard pipe from home but there looms had long warps threading already with in process weaving  on them  and they did not want to unthread them . it is basically like having two looms in one!


  now tie it up  easily and take your threaded warp  over to the loom to hang by tying  it up


 the wx60 loom waiting  for the new inside set to be hung



   hooking  the neatly tyed up inside set  package to the roller bar hooks

   place the reed in the  beater un roll  place the loom beam into the warp roll set the break easy
