If you have never used warp sticks before while beaming, you are in for a real treat. Sticks provide a rigid flat surface exactly the full width of your loom on which you can wind 2-7 revolutions of warp (the finer and/or sparser your warp ends, the more revolutions between stick layers).
For pictorial instructions of the beaming process, check out our "Flippy" guide to dressing your loom.
Troubleshooting:If your edge threads start to sag a little bit during the beaming process, you should have put your next layer of sticks in a little sooner or you should be beaming with more tension.
