    Just finished paper

    Peter,
    I have been researching the historic weaving of plaids in preparation of dressing my loom and trying my hand at a Henderson (my wife's ancestry) tartan. Your other papers have been a real help in my search. This paper has answered many of my questions. Thank you, you have contributed so much and it is appreciated.
    X Marks the Scot is an invaluable source for this relative newcomer. Thanks to everyone.
    Respectfully, Russ.

    Very informative, especially as I've been planning to join two pieces of tartan to make a plaid and was wondering just how simple or complex it might be.

    That's interesting but I wonder why as there is now double width cloth. Unless of course you want to go down the reenactment route but the problem is that modern cloth is wrong as you won't get traditional offset pattern with or without a selvedge mark/pattern.

    If you want go the whole hog and to do it properly PM me.

    A nicely informative article.

    Minor spelling check on p.6

    "Both techniques would work link blinds or curtains"

    should that be:

    "Both techniques would work like blinds or curtains"?

    Thank you again!

    Doesn't matter how often one checks something. Corrected. Thanks
