The March/April 2017 issue of Handwoven celebrates the rich tradition of Nordic weaving techniques in the modern world—the love of craftsmanship and quality coupled with playful innovation that marks these traditions.
You will meet Gina Hedegaard Nielsen, a Danish weaver, teacher, and newsletter editor who tells us about the state of weaving in Scandinavia today.
Marty Benson, Janet Giardina, and Gayle Pace bring us a Finnish table linen trio fit for a summer picnic at your local fjord.
Madelyn van der Hoogt and Suzie Liles introduce us to the charm and simplicity of dukagång, Sarah Jackson shares a lovely crackle scarf (a descendant of the Swedish Jamtlandsvaev), Susan Horton helps us explore halvdräll, and Rita Hagenbruch brings us a lovely runner in Swedish lace.
Best of all, our own Jodi Ybarra has done an extensive study on how to use Cotton Clouds yarns on your rigid heddle loom, giving examples of different weave structures to create dazzling cotton fabrics in Handwoven's feature article, Yarn Lab.
Create a cozy home and celebrate Nordic weaving with nine projects in the March/April 2017 issue of Handwoven!
