Melissa attended Vavstuga, weaving school, in Massachusetts. She gave a wonderful program on her experience, showed several pieces and helper ideas that she completed there. This is a Swedish type of weaving with counter march looms. The class was from 9-4 with 1 hr lunch. They did round robin weaving and if you didn't complete your part someone else would do it for you and Melissa wanted her pieces to be her work. They had drafting lesson in the am, the wound warp, threaded, tie up, and wove on different looms to complete there different examples. She now attaches and uses a ribbon with measurements to help her keep track of how long her project is and she showed us how to make thrumbs.
