    New class sessions

    We’ve added two class sessions to our schedule:

    First come, first served; contact us. Note that in Swedish Classics we now offer an introduction to the drawloom, offering the same warp that Tonya wove her infamous alphabet on.

    Join us this Saturday, June 11, from 1pm until the wee hours.

    After two years of cancellation, we are once again inviting folks to our beautiful Farmhouse property for this festival, which is meant to be our annual fundraising event for our sister nonprofit Fabric of Life. In addition to our Bargain Boutique mentioned above, there will be a welcoming Spinning Circle Extravaganza, so bring your wheel! Among other offerings, there will be an opportunity for folks to weave on floor looms, pet baby ducklings, watch glassblowing, and engage in a variety of enticing mini workshops.

    See Fabric of Life’s Barnfest page to learn more, and to sign up for mini workshops.

    Väv Immersion celebration

    We are so proud that our fifth cohort has just finished this year’s 8-week immersive residential weaving class. Our fabulous and diverse group of four students worked incredibly hard and learned a tremendous amount. Last week we hosted a Grand Exhibition for the public to meet our students, celebrate their accomplishments, and share yummy snacks.
