The months of February and March, and the first week of April, have been filled with a multitude of wonderful classes and participants! As you can see, we’ve been busy. We couldn’t have been able to accomplish all that we do without the addition of our current apprentice, Mary Beebee, and our new employee Kim Sebrey. Kim joined the Vävstuga team in January as chief cook and gardener. We’ve been tracking the number of warps we wind on a monthly basis and thought you’d like to know our statistics for February and March 2012. There were 236,808 meters of warp wound in 8/2 and 16/2 cottons, 16/2 and 20/2 line linens, 22/2 cottolin and Tuna wool. That equates to 258,976 yards or 147 miles. Any day now our warping mills will be reaching warp speed! The adjustable and padded weaving benches that are so coveted in our studio are back in stock. We’ve had two authors donate their books to benefit the Vävstuga Scholarship Fund: Kati Reeder Meek, who wrote Reflections of a Flaxen Past, and Barbara Michelson, who authored Leave Nothing on the Back Burner. You can find both titles in the new Scholarship Fund Benefit section of our Bookstore. The response to Vävstuga Days has been overwhelming. There are just a few slots left on Friday, April 20th.
