  1. Thank you for this wonderful tool.Some months ago I used "Tablet Weaving Draft Designer v1.0.1" and it works perfectly, thank you very much for this gift. I am beginner in trying weaving. Today I tried to use Tablet Weaving Draft Designer v1.1.2 and it did not respond.What can I do to continue practicing creating my own designs?

    1. Do you have the "lock draft" tool ticked? It's just below the controls for setting the number of tablets, their holes and the number of picks for the draft.

  2. Hello, I just started tablet weaving and I love it! However, I now have a friend asking if I can do a flaming skull motif and I haven't the foggiest idea if it's possible or not. If so I'm thinking with 6 or 8 hole cards, but still don't know how to design it. Any advice or thoughts would be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks,
    Shane

    1. Is this the kind of thing you're thinking of? https://drive.google.com/file/d/1McDIsoaaVfBMN8AJQsCW_vwRcLIizBOV/view?usp=sharing If you downloand the file from the link above, then open it using Tablet Weaving Draft Designer in your browser, you should be able to see the draft. I've designed it for six-hole tablets, as I couldn't get the rounded shape I wanted on the skull otherwise.

  3. Yes, I think so. Kind of hard for me to see the pattern in my head lol. Is it possible to orient it the length of the band (turn the image 90 degrees)? Or does that just complicate matters more?

    Thanks,

    Shane

    1. The trouble is working in enough space around the skull for flames as well as a bit of black to separate it from the next one. It would be doable in simple double-face with four holed tablets for the black and white threads, with the red flames either embroidered onto the band or worked in using brocade.
