    Happy Fall Yarn Sale!

    We have moved our annual Thanksgiving Yarn Sale earlier to prepare for consolidating our studios at the Farm House before the snow flies.

    20% off yarn orders placed online with gratitude for your business and friendship!

    Sale begins on Monday, October 12th at 12:01am (just after midnight on Sunday) and ends on Sunday, October 18th at 11:59pm.

    (sale includes in-stock yarns ordered online only)

    Place your orders at https://store.vavstuga.com/

    Please note – We will be closed for the Monday, October 12th holiday. Order processing will begin on Tuesday, October 13th with orders placed on Monday and will continue in the order they are received throughout the week.

    Thank you for your patience as orders will be processed with reduced staffing due to Covid precautions.

    For your future planning, the store will remain open at Water Street until Thanksgiving 2020 and will re-open at the Farmhouse in 2021.

     

    Vävstuga Tote Bag

    Our Vävstuga Tote Bag, is now available on our web store. Woven of jute, it is large and stands on its own.

    A handy and eco-friendly bag to use for running errands, it will also let others know about your weaving passion and your fondness for Vävstuga.

    The bag is 16″ wide x 13.5″ tall. It opens to about 8″ deep, with a 6.5″ high handle.

     

    Linen Weavers

    We had several ambitious linen weavers join us in September and we share with you some of their beautiful projects along with our grand display of Becky’s handwoven linens.

    2021 Class Schedule

    Having had our final class for 2020 two weeks ago, we have been busy continuing our move out of the Water Street studio and into the Farmhouse on Bassett Road.

    We usually publish our annual class schedule with our October Newsletter. However, times are just too uncertain right now to issue any promises about what next year can look like, especially with class dates.

    We are working on a tentative schedule, including additional ventilated classroom space for the warmer months. We just need to wait until the time comes closer to see what Massachusetts and other states will allow. We remain hopeful as we prioritize the safety of all our students and staff.

    We will let you know when the 2021 class schedule is ready with this monthly Newsletter.
