Announcing: Väv Immersion 2019

Vävstuga Weaving School has recently announced they are accepting applications for Väv Immersion III  This textile opportunity of a lifetime will be held August 12, 2019 – November 22, 2019 in Shelbourne, Massachusetts.  It is a great way to say, “I love you” to yourself.  So, in honor of Valentine’s Day, I’m sharing with you one of the best gifts I’ve ever given to myself.

Vävstuga’s founder & weaving guru, Becky Asheden, is an amazing educator and weaver.  See my posts of Väv Immersion 2016 for details of all the incredible learning that occurred in 16 weeks. (Note: the 2019 is a 15 week class)

Students 35 and under are eligible for scholarships through the Ddora Foundation.

Students over 35 – if you need a little financial boost and are a member of the Handweaving Guild of America, consider applying for one of their grants , the deadline of March 1st.

If you are a member of another textile organization or local weaving guild, they too might have grants to support you.

Consider creating a fundraiser, offering your own handwoven goods as a thank you.

 

 

The Väv Immersion early deadline application is just around the corner – March 1st – and the regular application deadline is May 15th.

When you give yourself this gift –  from rag to rug, thread to tablecloth, and yarn to blanket – you will be in delight!  It is a fabulous way to love yourself!

 

 

Happy Valentine’s Day!     Tammy

    1. That is why I’m glad you have found ways to return for a class here and there at Vavstuga. I was fortunate to have a window of time and circumstances that allowed me to fly away temporarily and weave away.

  1. Tammy, you have mentioned a smalandsvav scarf. Would you be willing to share that pattern? Planning a return to VAvstuga to throw myself into smalandsvav and that scarf would be a goal.

    1. Hello Debbie, The pattern I used is Becky’s, which you will most likely get in the Smalandsvav class. You’ll find more about the set-up by searching Drawloom, Two Harness and Smalandsvav on my blog. It is a process that is best tried first with a teacher/friend who is familiar with all of the particulars of two harness weaving. As for the scarf, I needed to beat ever so lightly to get a fabric that could be warn as a scarf. I did this for my daughter’s scarves. For mine, forgot to beat lightly, and though I can wear it as a scarf, if feels too thick and heavy. Next time, I’ll use a wider set and lighter beat to match. Another option would be thinner threads. Here are two sample patterns I found quickly online that might give you something to play around with. Let me know if you can access them.
