The Wheat Harvester Tapestry, Far Away in Finland

The curator of the National Craft Museum of Finland, Anneli Hemmilä-Nurmi, was kind enough to send me some photos of the “Deep Roots” exhibit, which includes my image of a Northern Minnesota wheat field.  It’s fun to think of it on display so far away.  If you are visiting Finland soon, it will be up until August 23.  I wish I could have attended the opening!  Several of the American artists were able to make the trip.

Five members of my Scandinavian Weavers Study Group had pieces in this show.  I wrote more about all the pieces on the group’s blog.

I visited the Craft Museum in 2013, while on the Vesterheim Textile Tour.  I was very inspired by these long red rugs.  I’m collecting red fabric now for my own variation.

    Congratulations, Robbie, I loved your tapestry when I saw it at the Textile Center, and it’s wonderful to “see” it on exhibit in Finland! Wish I were there this summer to go to the show. Joan
