|Entrance to VavStuga Shop|
The space is decorated in Swedish style, simple, comfortable, and very welcoming.
|Upstairs kitchen for students.|
Breakfast was brought up around 8 AM by Sara, the current VavStuga apprentice, and we all sat around the table (seats 8) together. When we were finished, we were welcome to go down and begin working, or browse through books in the school library.
When we arrived there was a Glimakra bandloom between two bedroom doors that we were welcome to weave on anytime. Susan came up and gave us a demonstration, and a couple days later, this second bandloom (above) was brought up as well. Before I left for home, I had ordered one as I had wanted one of these small looms for 16 years or so, since seeing one in a Glimakra catalog as well as in an early VAV magazine.

At the other end of the warping porch was where we dined.
