Correcting Mistakes

A common problem is missed warp threads. Check each row as you finish to make sure that you missed no warp threads. Press up on the warp threads ahead of the row. It is best to check while the needle is still in place. If you have missed one or more warp threads, correct the problem now. If you don't detect missed warp threads until later, you can correct them by running a fresh weft thread over the missed warp. You may use any tail that is going to be sewn in or you may introduce an additional thread to sew over the skipped spot. You can do this anytime, even after the piece is off the loom. I have discovered missed warps months after finishing a piece.

Another problem is speared warps. You can check for this by gently sliding the row up the warps just before you snug it in place. Speared threads will prevent the beads from sliding up between the warp threads. Speared warps can be a problem if you wish to pull the warp thread through the work later. To correct the problem, remove the thread from the needle and pull it back through the row. Rethread the needle and pass back through the beads without spearing warp threads.
