From the Editor’s Note:
As the editor, I considered each of these articles as gifts – I hope you do, too.
We may all have to add band weaving to our New Year’s resolutions; Heather Torgenrud’s new book will be out this month to inspire and instruct us.
Or maybe you will be inspired to weave a new piece on a warp-weighted loom after reading about Marta Kløve Juuhl’s exploration of diamond twill.
This issue inaugurates a new series. Occasionally we will publish the story of a “fabulous find,” a Scandinavian textile that has been found and and now preserved and loved. We’ve all heard stories of marvelous runners or coverlets or tapestries found in a pile of textiles in an antique store or thrift shop, or handed over from a distant relative, or at the bottom of a box at an estate auction. The thrill is in the find. To share those stories, and display our finds online, I’ll continue to search out stories and images of “fabulous finds” to share. Do you have one? This series will serve as a virtual exhibit of the beautiful Scandinavian textiles we have in our homes. They may never be displayed in a museum or gallery, but they will be shared and appreciated within our Norwegian Textile Letter community.
