Exhibition: Flower embroidery

Last week I had the opportunity to meet one of Alice Lund Textilier's first employees, Anna Hådell. She worked at the studio from 1936-1946 and she is today 104 years old. A very prominent age indeed... Anna has had a long career in the textile business, amongst other things at Leksands Hemslöjd. Right now there is an exhibition at Leksands Kulturhus with her embroideries that she made after her retirement in the 1970s. Lovely works of flowers and landscapes. Today Anna has put her own weaving and embroidery to the side but she is still interested in the field. It is a real treat to be able to take part in some of her extensive knowledge and experience.

  1. Verkligen en förmån att få ta del av Annas kunskaper, ska gå upp till henne med Vävmagasinet och lite foton från adventskaffet på ALT.
    Bra foton Du har tagit!
