It will never cease to amaze me how simple it is to start a batch of cloth on the AVL, thanks to that sandpaper beam. I just lay the threads across it and start weaving with no tie-on whatsoever. Yeah, the first few picks are harrowing and the first four inches are slow, but it's way faster than tying 30 knots onto an apron rod.
Meanwhile, at another point in the pipeline, I came in early to cut black cloth that's been edged and shrunk. The cutting table goes in the middle of the sales floor so I do it before store hours.
And then, there's the last of the black cloth that needs to be shrunk. It'll have to happen next week because this week is totally focused on getting white cloth woven and ready before my May shows.
