    Tonya Jones

    From apprentice adventures to Vävstuga staff member

    FullSizeRender-002We celebrated our most recent apprentice, Tonya Jones, with a belated, but delectable, gathering featuring a display of her prolific weaving over the prior 6 months. Now that she is on staff, managing our shipping and helping in the studio, we will all be able to enjoy her future weaving pursuits and great customer service.


    You may have seen pictures of Tonya’s work on our Facebook page.  You can also follow Tonya on her Facebook page, Tonya’s Wovens!

     Kerry’s blog post

     Gus’s Rep weave stairway runner!


    The rep weave runner Gus made last year was finally installed in his home! According to Gus, the carpet guy was impressed as it was his first time installing a handwoven carpet! He did a great job. With thick felt underlayment Gus says it’s wonderful to walk on. No more shoes on the stairs!




    Festival of Fabrics November 28-December 2

    There are still a few spaces left in this exciting class for our Basics Alumni! Come and weave an assortment of wonderful structures including: 10-shaft twill, 8-shaft plaited twill, 4-shaft huck and shadow weave combined, plain weave with warp faced banded sections, honeycomb, and plain weave stripes.

    Becky also will offer ideas and examples of ways to use your fabrics as bags, clothing, aprons, and more. You can see last year’s projects on the class web page on our website, but Becky is currently creating  new projects and colorways. Come and be delightfully surprised!

    New Treasures Project available this December!

    Roy Orr’s Smålandsväv

    In May of 2015 an incredible jacquard weaver named Roy Orr came to the Vävstuga Drawloom Basics class. He brought a beautiful example of Smålandsväv with him, which he had obtained in Sweden while stationed there. With Becky’s help, Roy analyzed the fabric and created a project draft so that he could weave it himself. Thanks to Roy, this exquisite project is now available to Basics alumni as a new Treasures project.  Tonya wove one as her final apprentice project and backed it with a sheepskin – shown here with Tom Hayward of Leprechaun Sheepskin!  You can do the same!

    September News

    New books available now

    We offer you two more wonderful books on Rosepath by Anna Östlund. We presented her delightful 3rd book, Från Januariblues till Decemberröd (From January Blues to December Reds) in our June News, so some of you may already know how wonderful her work is. We are pleased to offer her first and second books which are now in stock on our shelves: Rosengång Berättelser Historik Vävar (Rosepath – Stories, History, Weavings) and Rosengång I Varmvalsverket (Rosepath in a Hot Strip Mill).  

    We are also happy to announce that Praktisk Vävbok is back in print and back in stock on our shelves! This reprint of a Swedish book of drafts from the late 1800s is a real treat. It has 50 pages of drafts, including several 6-shaft weaves and over 150 8-shaft twill variations.

    August Classes

    img_9671-001img_9787-001img_9672-002Our recent Swedish Classics classes had a great time weaving rosepath, among other beautiful structures as shown.

    While our 2017 Swedish Classics class is fully enrolled, we encourage our Basics Alumni to consider the 2017 More Swedish Classics class for some equally lovely projects.


    Participants in our Linens: Seed to Cloth class experienced the process of preparing flax from ground retting, to spinning, to weaving with linen at our bucolic Farm Studio and Flax House. Join us in August, 2017 for this wonderful class.

    Fall 2016 Classes for our Basics Alumni

Pictured here are Finnish Opphämta, Enkel Skillbragd from Norway, Treadled Leno from Sweden, and Gagnefdrus – a Swedish honeycomb. There is also a 12-shaft figured fabric from Denmark and the 4-shaft Swedish Halvdräll with its interesting block threading.

    Väv Immersion Program 2017

    This amazing 15-week intensive weaving class offers challenging projects, extensive theory classes, and a broad variety of topics of interest to weaving students. All this in an idylic rural farm house setting with delicious home-cooked meals. The program begins on Tuesday, September 5th, right after Labor Day weekend 2017, and runs through December 15th.

    Vävstuga is partnering with Fabric of Life 501(c)3 to fulfill our mission of offering the Väv Immersion program. You can see pictures and read more about the program at both of the above links. Last year Fabric of Life was honored to receive grant funding from the Ddora Foundation which enabled need-based scholarship assistance to applicants ages 18-35. We hope to be able to do so again for the 2017 program and will let you know when we have more information later this fall. There will also be some work-study options available. We are currently finalizing some of the application details for the program, but if you have any questions, please contact us.

    Welcoming Tonya Jones to the Vävstuga Staff

    As many of you know, Tonya has been our apprentice these last 6 months and we celebrate her achievements in that role. Tonya’s personality, work ethic, and customer service talents made her a joy to have in the studio so we invited her to join our staff this month. You can read her bio on our About page. Here is a glimpse of just a few of her apprentice projects:

    July 2016

    Hello friends of Vävstuga and welcome to our new Newsletter subscribers!

    We have two lovely and inspiring books to offer you this month! Band weavers take note!

    Applesies and Fox Noses: Finnish Tabletwoven Bands

    book-kariapples_215x300  This is one of the most instructive manuals we have seen for table woven bands. It includes clear pattern diagrams, instructions,   and beautiful photographs for 30 different bands.





    Traditional Finnish Decorative Bands

    th-book-schvtradit  First published in 1903, this book is the most comprehensive publication on tablet weaving of its time. 159 band designs are reproduced in color and techniques that vary from braided bands to tablet-woven bands and pick-up patterned bands using various kinds of rigid heddles. A nice bit of history of the tools used to make this wide selection of bands used in 19th century Finland makes this a very interesting and inspiring book!




    June and July were very fun and busy class months here at Vävstuga!

    Sagas and Fluff, Swedish Rag Rugs, Bands in the Barn, Treasures, and 3 Basics classes in June.

    Sagas and Fluff was a wonderful week of weaving weft-faced wonders! Our week combining Swedish Rag Rugs, Bands in the Barn and even some Treasures projects was a great success out at the Farm Studio. Watch for this to be repeated in June of 2017!

    classblock-sagas IMG_9104   IMG_9003IMG_9063






    The Summer Weaving Workshop, One-Day-Wonders and The Swedish Kitchen classes in July.

    We had a wonderful week weaving with teens during The Summer Weaving Workshop! Join us next year for an all-ages week of weaving, including on the drawloom, plus natural dyes, spinning, and even some maypole dancing, picnics, and fun games on the side. Some adult students joined in that week to weave some One-Day-Wonder towels and runners. It was great having everyone out at the Barn Studio! Weaving for the Swedish Kitchen was also a hoot with rep woven placemats, towels and table squares, and Lisa Hill’s amazing creativity in designing fun and practical pocketed aprons! See Tonya’s below.

    IMG_9308 IMG_9250 IMG_9399IMG_9426







    There’s still room in classes for some summer and fall 2016 weaving fun!

    For our Basics Alumni there are a few spaces left in Swedish Classics, August 15-19 and August 29-September 2 and Nordic Classics, September 26-30

    When planning your fall weaving adventures, consider Flamboyant Blankets coming up October 17-20 and Festival of Fabrics, November 28-December 2 and, of course, Treasures December 6-9 and 13-16 – contact us for project availability.

     Stay Tuned for 2017!

    Our 2017 Class Schedule is so close to being ready to make public but, needing a few tweaks, we must wait to announce it in the August Newsletter.

    Here’s a few hints: you can count on some Basics Classes in January, June/July, and likely December. The 2017 Väv Immersion Program dates will be from the late summer into fall. And we have a NEW CLASS which will feature Vävstuga favorites – and there are so many to choose from! Registration will open after the schedule is posted.


    Until then, have a wonderful summer and happy weaving!

    Join us at Vävstuga for a great class, visit our store (Tues-Fri 9-3) or our web store any time, come to Library Hours on the first Friday of each month 2-5pm (next is August 5th), and check out our Facebook page and Ravelry group!

    New Rosengång (Rosepath) Book!

    book-ostljanuar_298x300 Från Januariblues till Decemberröd – 18 Kuddar i Rosengång by Anna Östlund

    A wonderful book with 18 stunning pillows in a rainbow of colors and patterns that match the months of the year. The inspirational rosepath designs woven on opposites are delightful with detailed instructions, beautiful pictures, and a small amount of text in Swedish.



    Summer Weaving Workshop – July 11-15th


    There is still room in our Summer Weaving Workshop that will take place in our Barn Studio. This would be a great opportunity to weave with a pre-teen or teenage relative or friend, as well as a chance for folks on our Basics waiting lists to get a taste of Vävstuga. You’ll weave on a floor loom, a band loom, and even a replica of a Viking loom. Make a rag rug, a towel or napkin, experience draw loom weaving, natural dying, and spinning. This will be a great week and we hope you’ll join us!



    Swedish Classics – August 15-19 and August 29-September 2


    It’s not often that we have space available in a Swedish Classics class! The natural follow-up class to  Vävstuga Basics, you’ll weave monksbelt and rosepath in wool and linen, twill cotton yardage on 8 shafts, a single-ply linen tablecloth, and satin damask in cotton and linen. Call to take one of the few spaces available!




    Weave for the Swedish Kitchen – July 19-22

    There is only one space left in the wonderful Kitchens class and we wanted to share the color choices for the projects to tempt you. You choose your color, we’ll wind and beam the warp for you. Projects include towels, runners, aprons, pot holders, placemats and/or napkins, in a variety of structures and yarns.

    Exciting new products to announce! Väv Immersion celebration! Upcoming classes for all!

    Heirlooms of Skåne

    heirlooms of skane book We are overjoyed to offer you Heirlooms of Skåne, the most comprehensive instructional book available today about these intricate and beautiful weave structures from southern Sweden.Take a look at this brand new book through our mini-movie preview on our web store.


    A beautiful new design tool is now available for our wool yarns

    yarn-jar-woo-faro_300x300This invaluable new design tool gives you the opportunity to arrange the colors of our yarns in endless combinations.  These precious nuggets of color can be stored safely in your beautifully labeled jar(s), and dumped into a basket or on a table to mix and match at your leisure. Sure to help your creativity and project planning!

    Traditional sample cards, with miniscule samples firmly attached in place are increasingly difficult to come by and computer screens vary in how accurately yarn colors are displayed. Our Yarn-In-A-Jar is an excellent solution for your design needs. All seven of our beautiful Swedish wool yarns are now available in their own jars. Our other yarns will become available in this format as well!

    Tuna Sock Kit is now online

    Our weaving yarns also make great knitting yarns!

    Moosey and Socks Our new Sock Kit is now available online and includes one skein each of two colors of our beautiful Tuna wool plus a sock knitting pattern customized for us by Scandinavian knitting expert Beth Brown-Reinsel.

    We’re offering four colorway options that we (and our model Moosey) love. You can also choose your own two colors of Tuna, if you prefer.



     Väv Immersion 2017

    Applications are now being accepted for our 2017 Väv Immersion Program

    We have begun our planning for our 2nd annual Väv Immersion Program. To apply for 2017, send a detailed description of your weaving experience and interests to the office. More details will be available when we announce our 2017 class schedule.

    Our amazing and delightful 2016 students have been absorbing more knowledge and skills than seems possible in such a short amount of time and they have been such a pleasure to have in the program! Tammy’s blog continues to provide a detailed account of their experiences.

    Tuna Sock Kit

    Our weaving yarns make great KNITTING YARNS!

    Moosey and Socks

    Becky’s friend “Moosey” is hard at work knitting up some beautiful socks using our Tuna Wool Sock Kit which includes a great knitting pattern customized for us by Beth Brown-Reinsel of Knitting Traditions in Vermont. We also suggest you try our Åsborya yarn for some great twined mittens.

    Yarns designed for weaving tend to have a tighter twist, making them ideal for sturdy and long-lasting knitted goods in traditional styles. Modern knitting yarns tend to be on the softer side, not always best for longevity. If you put in all that work, why not make a product that will last?  Try out our yarns for knitting and let us know what you think!

    Our Tuna Sock Kit is available by calling the office at 413-625-8241. It will soon be on our web store as well.

    The kit includes the pattern for the socks shown here and 2 skeins of contrasting colors of Tuna yarn. You can see the beautiful colors on our web store, then call to order.


    Strong Hand-Tooled Beads & New Counterbalance Tie-Up Conversion Kit!

    The Vävstuga Tie-Up System has just gotten even better!

    We are proud to announce the arrival of our new Vävstuga beads for our famous tie-up system! Our own strong, hand-tooled beads are now available for both the Countermarch and new Counterbalance conversion kits. Bead packs alone are more economical than texsolv pegs and you can order these items on our web store:

    vavstuga-tieup-kit-8cm_300x300  vavstuga-tieup-kit-4cb_300x300   vavstuga-tieup-beads-black_300x300  vavstuga-tieup-beads-white


    Vävstuga Loom Bumpers

    Loom Bumber

    Our Vävstuga tools department has fashioned yet another item for your weaving convenience.

    Our “Loom Bumpers” keep your loom from traveling across the room as you weave.  Those of you who have enjoyed weaving in our studio have already seen how useful these Loom Bumpers are when your loom is located near a wall.




    Classes have been rolling along this season, keeping us busy with three Vävstuga Basics classes so far, along with our Väv Immersion program. All of these have been providing wonderful experiences for us, as well as for the students!

    Coming up in April: We still have a couple of spots in our Saturday, April 9th Wool Combing Workshop with Gina Gerhard. Call the office to enroll.

    In May our focus turns to Drawloom weaving and there are still a few Drawloom & Linen Treasures projects available to our Alumni.

    Looking ahead to June: We have space in our Rag Rugs class, June 13-15 and our Bands in the Barn class, June 15-17. Enroll in both and stay for the week!  We’re also offering a Summer Weaving Workshop for ages 10-Adult, July 11-15. Do you know a pre-teen or teen with whom you’d like to share a wonderful week of weaving?!

    Our delightful apprentice, Tonya, has also been weaving up a storm! In March she completed several fabulous double weave blankets, a fine cotton “tulip” fabric for an Easter skirt, and a gorgeous Opphämta runner!
