Lark Leonard, who taught a wonderful straw ornament workshop for us last year, will join us again to teach a class in making a small woven birch bark basket in the Scandinavian tradition. The class will take place Sunday, June 29, 10 AM – 5 PM, and will cost $50. Class size is limited, so contact us soon so as not to miss this opportunity.

Our Swedish Heirlooms class May 12-16 and our Weavers Choice class June 2-6 are filling with some wonderful weavers. There is still a chance for you to join them if you can squeeze it into your schedule.

Becky has been busy this spring doing the final edits on her translation of The Swedish Weaving Book (Väv Boken), which should appear in print later this summer.

Becky is also working on the final details of a new DVD, featuring streamlined basic weaving instruction on the new Julia loom from Glimakra. It is the instructional DVD that will come with the new looms, but it will also be of great use to anyone as an instructional tool for easy and readily accessible warping techniques using tools that require minimal investment.

We’re adding another new class to our schedule: Traditional Swedish Rosepath, offered July 28-29. These stunning weft-faced techniques are simple to do and only require four shafts.
