Susanna Robbins passes on

It is with heartfelt sadness that we inform friends of Vävstuga that Susanna Robbins passed away on April 1, 2009. A partner in the organization, she will always be remembered for her kind friendship and eye for beauty. It shone through in her weaving, gardens, and the lovely details of the building that houses Vävstuga Swedish Weaving & Folk Arts. Susanna Robbins

  1. I think of Susie bringing such life to 16 Water Street, and her loving relationship with that building, and all she learned as she created it, inside and out. As Vavstuga, it shone with beauty. I hope those who enter the door will find peace and joy there.

  2. I’m so sorry for your loss, and for the loss of Susanna in the weaving community. Vavstuga is such a special place – and she was an integral part of that specialness.

  4. Becky, This was such sad, sad news. I send much sympathy to you and Susanna’s family. Susanna was such a gentle and kind person, and a joy to know. I will miss her very much.

  5. Gentle woman … indeed her eyes sparkled with joy for the warm, welcoming “home” she created for weavers to become immersed in the craft of weaving.

    Eh, what a sad thing to find out about. It’s been a few summers since we saw her last. I’d like to
    mention that Susie was, and will always be, my favorite old time fiddle player.

  7. Becky – and any family who read this – I am so sorry. I think of the intense pleasure that Susie got from her home, her work, her goats, her garden, her music and the beauty she created and nurtured around her and all the pleasure she gave to others. Please let me know if there is anything I can do to help you.

    Becky, I had never met Susie but I know the void a loss of a friend leaves. Vavstuga is my tour destination with NEWS this July. I am sorry that I will not get to meet her and very sorry for your loss.

  11. Such a treasure lost. Susie’s creativity and drive to make the studio the gem that it is, was her gift to all of us. She left us this as a way of remembering her and her talents.
