        Computer programs compatable with Windows 2000 and later are now available to assist with the design and layout for both triangular and rectangular looms.

        These programs assume the user has previously woven using the continuous strand weaving method. Although there are many web sites telling how to do this, we find that a 'hands on' lesson with an experienced instructor is very helpful. These programs are not intended to be a learning tool.

        When designing a new project, it may sometimes be difficult to attain an artistic balance between colors, fibers, and weave structures. These programs are designed to assist with the decision of how many nails to use for each color, fiber, or weave design.

        It is very helpful to know how much material is required to finish your project. With the size of the loom and nail count, these programs automatically calculate how many yards of each color are required.

Here is a screen image from the "Shawl Display" program.

        Above is a screen display of the "Shawl Display" program. The "Shawl Display" program is one of two programs to help design the fabric when weaving on a continuous strand triangular loom. This program is compatable with the "Weave Design" program shown below. They share save files and startup data. Notice the yardage is given at the lower right of the screen next to the color selections.

Next is the "Weave Design" program.

These two programs have different approaches to design. Some users may prefer one over the other. Some users may use both in their design efforts.

Next is the "Rectangle" program.
