Here is my first weaving experience! Thanks to Angela Tong, I really enjoyed learning with her. I used a 4 shaft table loom (as I don't have a rigid heddle loom, and had just as much fun. As you can see, I ran out of green so made do with yellow!

Hi there - can someone who's taken the rigid heddle class please tell me what dent heddles are used? Someone from Craftsy got back to me to say that both the scarf and tea towels were on an 8 -dent but I am surprised that the tea towels (which look pretty fine in the pics) could have been done on an 8-dent... can someone please confirm? Thank yoU!!

My 4 shaft table loom has a 10 dent reed-beater (can't help you with the heddles there). But Angela says that she is using a double knit which in Australia is an 8ply - and that's not too fine. I chose a 4 ply cotton because I didn't want my towels to be as thick as hers looked.
