Kate Larson may not write posts every day as some authors do, but her posts are worth the wait!

In the post we’ve chosen, The Secret Language of Mittens, you’ll find a cogent look at the  1830’s migration from Norway to the US, and how the people  ”...brought some traditions forward... leaving others behind.” 

In this short post you’ll find links to two premier Norwegian museums in the US, and links to two books.
And, be sure to look at the books, digital media, and magazine articles she has written, and her workshop schedule!

A quote from the BBC’s News Magazine:

Established in 2011, the London Cloth Company uses traditional weaving techniques and a range of equipment dating all the way back to the 1870s."
