Winding a Stick Shuttle

I figured with the first installment of 2017 weaving club shipping soon, I’d give a little tutorial on winding a stick shuttle. Ready?

I’ve seen a lot of people winding this way:
shuttlewind-center
This adds bulk to the center of the stick and you can’t add a ton of yarn or it’s going to be too big for your shed. I use a figure 8 wind on at the sides of the stick. Back to front on the top slot…
shuttlewind-topfrtback
Keeping it at the side go to the back and out the front of the bottom slot….
shuttlewind-bottom
You can see the path it takes:
shuttlewind-seehowitgoes
Over and over until you feel it’s filled (I’d put more but this is just an example):
shuttlewind-oneside
And then repeat on the other side.
shuttlewind-done
Voila.
It may take a wee bit of coordination to get use to at first but it’s a good thing to learn if you don’t do it already.
