Vesterheim Norweigan American Museum presents for the Weavers

Last night, the weavers filled the house to hear a presentation entitled “Warmth and Color: Traditional Norwegian Coverlets.” Laurann Gilbertson, Textile Curator at Vesterheim Norwegian American Museum, began with a slide presentation showing some of the old coverlets and describing how the various techniques are woven.

Sandy Somdahl and Barbara Berg of the Oneota Weavers Guild joined Laurann in sharing their woven samples and Barbara shared a little of the work she does in liturgical weaving in the Theo Moorman technique.
