If you’re using the shedding device, you’ll also need heddles (which connect the shedding device to your warp threads) which can be purchased, but you can also make them yourself!
You warp your loom differently if you are using the shedding device when you weave beads, so make sure you choose the correct set of warping instructions to the left.
1) Turn your loom sideways and make sure that the thread does not cross inside and goes all the way around the loom. (The warp can NEVER cross inside because that would prevent you from being able to advance the warp.)
2) Release the tension slightly on the loom. You should be able to lift up on the warping bar.
3) If you are warping for bead weaving without the shedding device or tapestry weaving with the shedding device, make sure there is one string in every dent. If you are warping for bead weaving with the shedding device make sure there are two strings in every dent.
