Warping for Bead Weaving the “Easy Warp” Way!
If you have a Mirrix Loom that you use for bead weaving but wish warping was easier, or if you want to start weaving on a Mirrix Loom but are intimated by warping, then you’re going to love warping for bead weaving the “Easy Warp” way!
This is a technique that we came up for tapestry weaving, but it works just as well for weaving beads!
With this method, all you do is tie your warp thread onto the brass screw in the upper left-hand corner of your loom. Then, you wrap your warp around your loom, placing your warp in dents in the spring as you go. When you’re finished, just tie off on the other screw. It really is that easy and ANY Mirrix Loom can be warped this way!
The only disadvantage to this method over the regular warping method is that you can’t advance your weaving. That means your piece length is restricted by the height of your loom. The good news? You can then weave another piece on the back!
