There are several ways to add texture and visual appeal to work done on a rigid heddle loom. One is with the use of a Kromski pick-up stick.

Pick-up sticks are flat pieces of wood that are sized to work with your loom. If you have purchased our Kromski Harp Forte Rigid Heddle Loom, you will notice that it comes with one pick-up stick. One end is beveled to help you use it.

How is it used? The stick is used behind your heddle. One way to look at it is that with a pick-up stick you trick your loom into thinking it is something it is not; you temporarily change the way the warp interacts with the slots and holes on the heddle. The result is a stunning range of patterns.

With the heddle in the down shed position, pick up the slot threads behind the heddle using the beveled end of the pick-up stick. One pattern, for example, requires every other one of these slot threads to be picked up – over, under, over, under… Once the stick is completely inserted, bring it forward to the heddle and put it on edge. You can see how this imparts a different, temporary shed opening.

There are a number of books and videos that address the use of pick-up sticks. Some sample patterns are shown right. Whatever you are weaving, give it a special look using your pick-up stick.
