Drawloom TreasuresWe still have the Lithuanian Opphämta tablecloth available for our students who have already taken a drawloom class with us. There is 1 space in each of these weeks:
- August 17-20
- October 19-22
We have 5 spaces left for Farmhouse Projects and Vävstuga Favorites projects September 21-24If you can’t get into one of our classes, and you want to join in the fun of our reopening, consider selecting one of our individual projects from either the Farmhouse Projects list or the Vävstuga Favorites list. Some of these projects have the Vävstuga Basics class as a prerequisite, but there are a number that are open to all. As our plans have been in flux, we have not yet updated the dates on our website, but any of the projects you’ll find on those class pages are available. If you would like us to set up the loom ahead of time for you (set up fees apply), just ask us if we will have time to have your loom ready for any of these available dates:
We have the following spaces available in these fall classes:
- 3 spaces in the August 23-27 Vävstuga Bandloom class

A new book by authors Åsa Pärson & Amica Sundström, Weaving Handbook: The Art and the Craft: Theories, Materials, Techniques, and Projects, provides a practical reference book for weavers of all skill levels.
The sample projects range from the elegantly simple to the increasingly complex, and cover a wide range of weaving techniques. In addition, details of the principles behind the arrangement and preparation of the loom, weaving tools, and different fibers and fabrics provide even more detail.
