# 94 Vi KronobergsVävare

This post started out as link sent to us from Pinterest, which led us to a post on Weaveolution,...which led us to a Swedish site... which enevtually led us to some pages of the site in English!

As thie site's author says: "Our name means, one word at a time, We Kronoberg's Weavers - or, perhaps better, Us Weavers of Kronoberg.”

Since Dorothy has Norwegian grandparents, and both Norwegian and Swedish handweavers were consumate rug weavers… and Dorothy has woven LOTS of rugs...

Here are 3 screenshot clips from the Swedish website, to entice you to go the english version of the site. (Homepage link shown later, at the bottom of this post.)

From Dorothy & Ron in W. Lafayette, Indiana, where the weather is swinging back and forth between 18F to 65F, from day to day.
Don’t like the weather today? Tomorrow will be better, uh, different.

Some weaving friends stopped by the house the other day to show what they have been working on. Here are some snapshots.

After selecting measures in the score that weren’t too many notes different from each other, Dagmar fed the output into her weaving  program, and centered the result.

Rita showed her experiments with patterns from Nancy Arthur Hoskins book.

Rita also showed a jaw-dropping piece done on 8 shafts

Rita designed the entire piece using a spreadsheet program on her computer, then handwove it on a manual loom.

#92 A Website with LOTS of Personality

Our weaving friend, Ellen, recently told us of her interest in an article in Piecework magazine (Mar/Apr 2015) by Donna Duchunas, and showed us a work-in-progress.
