The time between warps is sometimes unsettling for constance. I am always eager to redress my loom as quickly as possible to maximize production. But I also want to make sure my materials are used wisely and with as little waste as possible. So besides the design process, thought is given to what items will be produced with the fabric woven. I always add at least one yard for sampling different weave structures and experimenting with various color options. This time of discovery is always exciting for me!
The sampling process involves weaving with different colors and trying out various weave structures. Sometimes a favorite weave will look fabulous in some colors and not good in other ones so this is an extremely important part of the design process.
