About the Weavers Guild of Minnesota

Since its founding in 1940 by six women, including Hilma Berglund, the Weavers Guild of Minnesota (WGM) has established itself as a nationally-recognized resource for the arts of weaving, spinning, and dyeing. WGM offers classes and events year round, serving nearly 700 new and experienced fiber artists each year. It was the catalyst in the formation of the Textile Center, where WGM currently maintains classroom, retail, and library space

Scandinavian Tapestry Treasures

May 31, 2018 | 6-8pm

Whether your interest in Scandinavian tapestry focuses on history, design, or technique—or all three—take advantage of the opportunity to see 59 Swedish and Norwegian tapestries owned by local collector Carol Johnson. Carol purchased her treasures over several decades from auctions, dealers, and her new favorite venue, eBay. Enjoy the display and the opportunity to study the sett, wool, and images.  Robbie LaFleur will discuss the history of tapestry in Scandinavia, and the differences between Norwegian and Swedish traditions. 6-8 pm on Thursday, May 31, 2018, at the Weavers Guild of Minnesota, located at the Textile Center in Minneapolis, Minnesota.

$5 reservation reserves your spot. Open to the public. Questions? Please contact info@weaversguildmn.org.
