Vävstuga Favorites – New twist – No prerequisite on “easy” projects

Good news for us – Our Vävstuga Basics classes are fully subscribed for 2017 (wait lists available). Good news for you – Our Vävstuga Favorites class now has openings for first timers to Vävstuga. Even if you have never taken a class with us before, anything on the class page labeled “Easy” is yours for the choosing. You’ll get to learn how to dress your loom the Vävstuga way and have the opportunity to learn some drafting and other tips from Becky, as well as be inspired by the lovely projects being woven by your classmates. Please encourage your friends who were hoping to take Basics this year, but did not get in, to consider this class alternative. faves-plainrunnerfaves-plaintowelfaves-plainsquare For our Basics Alumni – check out our new Vävstuga Favorites Curtains page! Those of you who have been to Vävstuga know that all our windows have beautiful, handwoven curtains. We’re excited to offer these new project options to your Favorites choices so you can bring this tradition to your own home!
