Clips and Clamps!
The "clip" clips onto the side of the fabric. One on each side. There is a cord attatched to the other end of the clip that has a hole for that very purpose.
I weave until I have about 2 inches of woven fabric behind the clip. Then I release the clip by pressing that little button on top which releases the sleeve that fastens the clip. Then I advance the clip. I can do this about 3 times before I have to advance the cloth itself.
As it is set up right now, I am getting about 2 more inches in the weaving width, and that makes me happy. I wove the first one on the cloth beam without the clamps and this one with the clamps, I can't wait to see how much of a difference there is in the finished cloth.
Until next time, Happy Weaving, Tina
