April 2010

Vävstuga is buzzing (literally) with activity. The construction project on our building is slowly coming along with a finish date of mid-June??? Spring Vävstuga Days will be May 11-15th. We will begin to take sign-ups for this very popular event on Wednesday, April 21st. Don’t be left out and do bring your friends so that they may have a Vävstuga experience to remember. Our Dressing the Loom class has a few openings remaining. You’ll find this class useful either as a review or as your first class at Vävstuga. Design and wind your own napkin warp to take home, in addition to experiencing all aspects of dressing our looms. All stages of our loom dressing techniques will be covered, including winding a warp on a warping mill, pre-sleying the reed, winding onto the back beam with warp sticks, threading Texsolv heddles, tying up to the front tie-on bar, and tying up the treadles. You’ll learn about both countermarch and counterbalance tie-ups. Wishing you a very happy spring!
