Valley Grove Tapestries: The First Unveiling

Would you like to see the Valley Grove tapestries in person? The first formal unveiling will be at the Syttende Mai (Norwegian National Day) celebration on Sunday, May 15, from 2-4 pm at the Valley Grove churches. It should be festive. Besides tapestries and some of my preparatory materials, there will be Hardanger fiddlers!

The first three tapestries are in the studio of textile conservator Beth McLaughlin, who is adding lining and hanging devices.

Full disclosure: Only the first three of the quartet of tapestries will be complete by mid-May, but it is only a good thing to look forward to a future event at Valley Grove. Instead, I will sit where the fourth tapestry will hang and demonstrate tapestry weaving.

For directions from your starting point, you can enter “Valley Grove Church” in Google Maps.

This lovely photo from the Valley Grove Preservation Society website looks like it could be a spring photo (but will spring ever come this year?).
