We are excited to be offering the Öxabäck Lilla loom — it’s a dream come true! This high-quality loom is beautiful, sturdy, compact, and it’s even collapsible to save space in your studio. Best of all, the pricing is surprisingly affordable. It’s available in weaving widths of 60 cm (24″), 80 cm (31″), or 100 cm (39″). Place your order now for February delivery.
New book: Estonian Bands
Check out our unbelievably gorgeous new band weaving book, Eesti Kirivööd (Estonian Bands). The pictures and printing are of extremely high quality; each of the over 200 intricately patterned antique bands is accompanied by a clear multicolored draft. This is truly a miraculous treasure chest of material that would otherwise only be available if you travel to Estonia and do extensive museum research. Please pass this information to all of your band weaving friends: we never know how long a foreign book will be available, so it is good to take advantage of this opportunity now.
Welcome to our apprentice Melissa
We welcomed Melissa Rudder to the Vävstuga family last July as a part-time apprentice for this late summer/fall season. She is weaving beautiful things, as well as doing invaluable work for us here at the school.
