Anyone who has taken the Vävstuga Drawloom classes has had the opportunity to look through these books for
inspiration in our Drawloom Studio. We are excited to be offering them for sale!
These beautiful pattern books contain over 15,000 different motifs developed by countless artists over numerous centuries. Britta Johanson has catalogued patterns into categories in several delightful little books.
Originally published by a cross stitch group in Sweden, their use can easily be expanded to many types of weaving and embroidery, as well as beading, knitting, tiling, or any other artwork that thrives on gridded patterns.
They are the most outstanding resource of this kind currently available and we thank Britta for her unique and unparalleled gift to the world!
Britta Johanson is a textile designer/artist and has worked with the visual arts, church textiles, and textile consumer goods for over thirty years.
Two weeks of classes created gorgeous blankets with unique block patterns and colors. The possibilities of this structure are endless!
Garn to Garment
Gorgeous warps led to creative sewing projects, including booties, bags, aprons, shirts and vests!
We wish you a wonderful Thanksgiving holiday! May your looms and your homes be filled with a bounty of things to be thankful for!
We will be closed on Thursday and Friday, November 26-27th and resume our regular Tuesday-Friday store and phone hours on December 1st.
