We always enjoy welcoming the delightful Beth Brown-Reinsel to teach knitting at Vävstuga. Her expertise in Scandinavian knitting techniques mirrors Becky’s expertise in Scandinavian weaving.
There is still space in Beth’s class which is offered this October 17-19. You can find more details on the Scandinavian Knitting class page.
This year’s project is Saami Mittens using our beautiful Swedish Tuna yarns.
The Saami people live in the northern most areas of Norway, Sweden, Finland, and Russia and are the nomadic indigenous people of Scandinavia.
Some projects with, and some without, the Vävstuga Basics prerequisite:
So many Favorites projects to choose from! Choose your own warp colors and warp lengths and we’ll have your warp chained and ready for you when you arrive. We can even beam the warp for you, or you can use it as an opportunity to review warping the Vävstuga way.
For those who have not yet taken our Vävstuga Basics class, we have an assortment of wonderful plain weave napkins, towels and/or runners, as well as easy Rep projects, to choose from.
For our Basics Alumni, the choices are nearly endless, from one of the Vävstuga curtains, to Jämtlandsdräll, Smålandsväv, Satin Damask, or fancy Rep runners, to flamboyant blankets, and more.
One spot is open October 23-26, and a few spots are still open in December 4-7 and December 11-14.
For Vävstuga Basics Alumni:
A rare opening has come up in both of our Swedish Classics weeks this fall!
We hope you can join us to weave beautiful Monks Belt and Rosepath, both in linen and wool, 8-shaft twill cotton yardage, a single-ply linen table square, and a true satin damask in cotton and linen. Delve into these classic Swedish weave structures and materials with class time focusing on theory and design. The perfect class to follow Vävstuga Basics.
