Since The Norwegian Textile Letter is published as an online newsletter, we can include ALL the entries in the annual National Exhibition of Weaving the in the Norwegian Tradition. Years ago, when print was our only choice, only a few photos of the top ribbon weavers were included. The non-ribbon winners are of high quality as well! Also, pieces submitted by weavers who have earned a Gold Medal in weaving are not eligible for judging. Enjoy these excellent and varied entries, too.
Gold Medalist Veronna Capone, from Brookings, SD, entered “Slowly/Light Grows/Then Closes,” a wall hanging in pick-and-pick technique.
Andrea Myklebust from Stockholm, WI, wove yardage in twill weave.
“Lars” the sheep was commemorated in Nancy Ellison’s wall hanging with natural fleece rya. Nancy (and Lars) live in Zumbrota, Minnesota.
Rosemary Roehl, Gold Medalist from St. Cloud, MN, also celebrated “Spring” in figurative bound weave.
