Floor looms are large boxy-looking pieces of machinery meant to store excess warp, keep threads under tension, and provide a mechanized system for lifting warp threads in particular order so the weft can travel through them. Weaving is really a simple binary code—warp thread up, or warp thread down.

 

Is weaving hard? Well, there is no straightforward answer. The truth is, weaving is hard, but it is also easy. The simplicities and difficulties of weaving balance out into an art that is both meditative and challenging; it is relaxing, occasionally boring, but somehow always interesting.
