New Issue of the Norwegian Textile Letter

Stories about exhibits are featured in the newest issue of the Norwegian Textile Letter; both the current exhibit, “From Underwear to Everywhere,” at the Vesterheim Norwegian-American Museum, and the National Exhibition of Folk Art in the Norwegian Tradition that was held last summer.  You will be inspired by photos of all the woven pieces included in the exhibit, and new this year, background on the “Best of Show” piece and its weaver, Judy Ness.

Norwegian Setesdal bunedIn case you are interested in weaving your own Setesdal bunad skirt, you’ll be forewarned about the intense process in Sue Mansfield’s article, “Setesdal Pleating.”  I guarantee that the next time you see this costume at an event or museum, you will be kneeling down to peer intently at the fabric, in total wonder.

Enjoy!
