    Mary Beebee was a Vävstuga apprentice in 2012, and she was a delight to have on board. She and Becky developed this towel for our Basics alumni as Mary's special project. It is an adaptation of the very same towel design that Becky wove at Sätergläntan in January of 1981, the first project there that she set up all on her own. Many of our Basics students have enjoyed this classic towel over the years, and now you can enjoy it as well. Meet Mary in person as she describes our Padded bench with tilt adjustment from AK:s Snickeri in Sweden.
