    As we head towards the end of the year it’s time to think about upcoming winter classes, holiday gifts, and our annual Thanksgiving online yarn sale.

    Scandinavian Knitting November 13-15, 2019

    A cozy class for a chilly time of year!  We are looking forward to welcoming Beth Brown-Reinsel back to Vävstuga!

    There is still time to sign up to join us at the end of next week, November 13-15th!

    Vävstuga Tools for Design and Efficiency

    You may already know about our Yarn-in-a-Jar design tool which gives you the opportunity to arrange the colors of our yarns in endless combinations by simply dumping the mouth-watering contents into a basket or onto a table to mix and match at your leisure.

    Each Yarn-in-a-Jar holds the complete color pallet for that type of yarn. It shows you accurate color and texture, with enough quantity of yarn for basic designing, and it’s beautiful to see on your shelf as a constant temptation to encourage color playtime.

    Becky has now developed a new tool that will save you both time and money – the Vävstuga Tube Winding Adapter.

    Winding warps with multiple ends in your hands, as we do in our studio, has many advantages. This adapter allows you to create as many ends as you need of each color without buying extra tubes of yarn. Use it to wind wool from a swift, or simply wind off of tubes or cones from the floor to make multiple ends.

    Custom made by Vävstuga to fit onto our thin shaft bobbin winder and our yarn tubes. The Vävstuga Tube Winding Adapter includes four tubes to get you started. You may also order a set of 10 Extra tubes or make use of your Vävstuga yarn tubes as you empty them.

     2020 Vävstuga Basics

    We have added several spaces to our Vävstuga Basics class to try to reduce our usual waiting lists and welcome more students into the Vävstuga community.

    If you, or someone you know, have tried to enroll in Basics in the past, but our classes were full, we hope you’ll try again in 2020.

    Basics classes are available in February, March, April, July and August in 2020. Thanks for spreading the word!
