    We have been enjoying a beautiful and busy Fall at Vävstuga! Our freshly restocked yarn shelves are overflowing with colors, so this is a great time to put in your order for your fall/winter weaving projects. Be sure to check out our yarn playground on each individual yarn page to make your color selection more fun!

    We have two new books in our bookstore

    Amandas Mönster – nya vävar (Amanda’s patterns – new weaves), by Elsy Bråtsjö Nilsson et al.

    book-nilsamandaA companion book, or sequel, to Räknade Trådar (which is also back in stock), this title comes from the same group of nine dedicated people who started working together in 2000 to analyze and meticulously document older Dalsland weavings from the 1700s to 1940s.

     

     

     

    Bärbart (Wearable), by Mariana Eriksson & Kerstin Lovallius

    book-erikbarbarThis little book presents a wide array of small weaving projects that can be worn. The creative examples include armbands, necklaces, bracelets, rings, innovative little bags, mittens, slippers, and belts, as well as jacket and dress fabric.

     

     

     

     

    Fun Times in Fall Classes

    Our Swedish Classics classes produced some breathtaking rosepath and monks belt patterns in addition to twills, satin and linens.

    Guest teachers at Vävstuga

    Vävstuga has also been basking in delight with three guest teachers this fall.

    Take a look at some of the beautiful projects Lisa Hill’s Nordic Deflection class accomplished! This class will return to our schedule in 2017.

    Beth Brown-Reinsel’s Swedish & Latvian Knitting class was well attended and very much enjoyed. The students asked us to bring her back to Vävstuga, which we certainly hope to do, so stay tuned!

     

     

     

     

     

    Laverne Waddington’s Backstrap Weaving class focused on Andean pebble weave. The rewards of these magical structures loomed large for our participants. Becky even got to participate!

    Still to Come this Fall

    Garn to Garments (November 16-20) By popular demand, this class will give you the chance to work with both Becky and Lisa Hill. An opportunity to play with colors, patterns, and structures and to create clothing and/or other projects. There are some incredibly beautiful warps being made ready for you!

    Vävstuga Treasures (November 30-December 4 and December 7-11) A wonderful way to end the year! Come weave a holiday gift for yourself or another. Call us to see which projects are still available!
