Visit Vavstuga’s library, by appointment
Becky has built an impressive collection of weaving books and magazines over the years. There are books on bands, coverlets, flax, historic patterns, rugs, drawloom, and many more subjects. The library has American books and Swedish books, but there are also books from other cultures like Norway, Africa, Estonia, and Mexico. Many of these books are out of print and Becky wants to share her collection with you. If you would like to come and spend some time in our library, please call us to schedule a time.
