Sewing these empty channels always seems like a hair raising experience to me because I feel like there is limited time between taking it off the loom and the threads filling those empty spaces. It always freaks me out a little tiny bit and raises my blood pressure somewhat, especially when it's a project for someone else!
But it always works out ok! I think next time I am going to leave a little bit more space than I did this time. It was a tight fit, but worked just fine. I also think I'm going to put some filler yarn in the channels just so the threads don't move. Then I'll cut out the filler yarn.
After cutting them apart, I had to go and pick and trim all the tiny threads that came off. It takes quite a bit of time, but this makes the edges look really clean!
Now I'm ready to ship them, and before I start on the other 1900, I feel like I want to wait for the "These are great! Now make the other 1900!" It's a huge commitment and I don't want to have something happen. So, now my other loom sits and wait for a tie-on! What a predicament to be in... I just barely got the 4-shaft up and running after a 4 month stall!
