Re: How to Weave on a Cardboard Loom

I agree that the warp cords/threads should never be cut! I have my students wrap the warp cord four times at the beginning, and at the end of the warping, with the tail tucked to the back of the board. Then, when the weaving is done and carefully taken off the board, they unwrap the beginning and end warp cords. They thread their weaving needle, and tuck these cords vertically into their weaving, first down, then up, then down into the channel that is formed by the weaving/warp. It won't come out, it's like Indian beadweaving - if you bury your yarn, using this zig-zag method,it will stay secure, and the warp cords have made a selvedge edge on the top and bottom of the weaving. Neat.
