Congratulations Ebba!

Congratulations to Alice Lund Textilier's weaver Ebba Bergstrom who has won Borlänge Municipality's Culture Prize 2014! This year Borlänge has raised awareness of hand-weaving by giving the prize to three weavers active in the community. We are so proud of Ebba and happy that the municipality understand the importance of this often tacit knowledge. Here is an article about this year's prize.

Exhibition: Wålstedts - treasure of Sweden

There is another interesting exhibition going on right now. Wålstedts have an exhibition in Stockholm at a new gallery in the old town, Galleri Yamanashi. Besides selling their wonderful yarns you can also see work from textile artists and craftsmen who work with Wåstedts yarns. For example there is a Helena Hernmarck tapestry on show. During the exhibition there will be different workshops and seminars, more information here. I will be talking about Alice Lund Textilier on December 4th, I hope to see you there!

Vernissage; "Låt oss gå in för mattor"

This Saturday we had the opening of Alice Lund Textilier's exhibition "Låt oss gå in för mattor" about the studio's rugs. Here is an article about the exhibition from a local newspaper. Pär, who had helped me with photographing for the exhibition was kind enough to take some photos from Saturday's events. So if you don't have the possibility to see the show here is a sneak-peek.
