Much has been said on the dangers of texting and driving. Texting-related auto accidents are a concern nationwide. However, little to no notice has been taken of the threat texting poses to weaving.
Each time you pick up your phone to read or send a text while weaving, you risk disaster. One erroneous pass of the weft can set in motion a chain of errors, leading to hours, even days of unweaving.
With the noted rise in texting since 2008, the amount of time spent unweaving due to texting-related errors has increased exponentially. This brings the hours of time spent unweaving to an average of twelve hours a day nationwide.
It is never safe to text and weave at the same time. Keep yourself, your family, and your nation protected by waiting until you leave the loom to send your texts.
