    We are on the downward slope with our building’s construction project, hooray! The store area has new windows, a new entry door, new walls, air conditioning and central heat! August 1st is our scheduled date for having most everything back in place. We are still keeping our regularly scheduled store hours (Wednesday through Saturday 2–5pm) but our presentation is a bit helter-skelter.

    A new fence enclosing our backyard was installed in early June. As you can see from the photo, it is quite elegant and has created a haven for us to enjoy.

      thanks for the pictures – Susan sure looks happy in her new space! I also like the back garden. Will you be setting up the hammock? Are there Swedish woven hammocks? 🙂 For others just tuning in… I had the chance to use these new tools when I was at a recent Basics class, and they are comfortable, sturdy, and well-balanced. They would be an excellent addition to your weaving studio!

      Oh we dream of lazying in handwoven hammocks but we think that project is somewhere on the “to-do” list. Thanks for the comments about the new Vavstuga tools … we are quite proud of them.
