Swedish Weaving

Come and join us for this unique class to learn about Swedish Weaving and make a small table runner using the technique.  Swedish Weaving is a form of embroidery also known as huck embroidery, huckaback weaving and puntoyugoslavo.  Swedish Weaving on linen fabric was popular in the 1930's. Modern Swedish Weaving is mostly done on Monks cloth, Stockholm cloth (also known as Popcorn) or huck toweling.  It can also be done on Aida cloth for those who like finer materials. A demo on Italian hem stitch for finishing the edges of the runner will also be shown.

A few things that you can make with Swedish Weaving include: afghans, placemats, baby blankets, bookmarks, and much more!

Class Fee: $65 (includes Starter Kit which contains prepared fabric, natural or white colour, 26" by 16", a bodkin, pattern, ‘how to ‘ instructions , and yarn).

Instructor: Mary Poole & Sharon Normandeau
Instructor Bio: Mary Poole learned the craft of Swedish weaving around 15 years ago and contributed to forming a guild for the purpose of promoting the craft. At one time the guild grew to over 40 members, but due to COVID, the numbers are now around 20 members. Knitting and cross-stitching are Mary’s usual activities, but Swedish weaving has taken most of her time lately. Coming to Montreal around 40 years ago from England there was no time for stitching. She had learned lace making in London but that seemed a dead craft here, so Mary knit and cross-stitched when she had time. Moving to Eastern Ontario 20 years ago, she discovered everyone was into crafts; rug hooking, quilting, and Swedish weaving! It seemed like heaven. Lots of choice! * * * Sharon Normandeau has been crafting in one form or another since childhood. There isn't much she hasn't tried. But she quickly zoned in on knitting and various types of needlework (needlepoint, bargello, cross-stitch, canvaswork, kogin, ribbon embroidery, chicken scratch, Swedish weaving, Japanese bunka embroidery, to name a few). She has also taught many of these techniques over the years and continues to remain active in the stitching community - always interested in learning something new, the most recent being Danish bead weaving.
