We’ve had quite a bit of excitement with the onslaught of enrollments for 2013 — more than 92% of our classes are filled for next year! It humbles us to no end that so many folks have made the trek to our beautiful studio and so many new faces are scheduled to visit next year. For many of our customers, weaving linen just isn’t enough and they enjoy spinning their own flax into fine linen thread. If you have never tried spinning flax, now is the time. Flax stricks are in stock from Holma-Helsinglands in Sweden. The stricks average approximately 125 grams (4.4 oz) and are just beautiful. We’ve also created this movie to show you how to dress your distaff. The holidays aren’t that far off and we now have beautiful gift certificates for every weaver (and spinner) on your gift list. The latest book that we have added to our website is Custom Woven Interiors: Bringing Color and Design Home with Rep Weave by Kelly Marshall. For weeks now we have been telling disappointed customers that we are sold out of Damask and Opphamta with Weaving Sword or Drawloom by Lillemor Johansson. Lo and behold, the alignment of the planets is very good right now: we discovered twenty more copies tucked away in storage! Wishing you all a beautiful Autumn filled with long walks in the woods and rainy days at the loom.
