Organizer: San Francisco School of Needlework and Design

The history of thread spinning in 17th century England is one of “scandal and imprisonment,” with women’s prominent role in the process neglected by history. Unwitting pawns in fights over monetary policy; beginning in the 1620s, gold spinners were thrown in jail for refusing to pay bribes, their homes were raided by constables, and they were tried in sham courts. This drama is extrapolated by Dr. Nguyen in this fascinating webinar.

Organizer: The New England Rug Society \ Textile Museum Associates of Southern California

Certain textile techniques unique to rural communities in Sweden have a long history, and the best pieces stand comparison with the most celebrated traditional textile art elsewhere in Europe. Yet they remain little known outside their locality, and little has been written about them in English. Collector Gunnar Nilsson will let us into the secrets of these handcrafted techniques, which are well represented in prominent Swedish museums, and well known to Swedish collectors, textile historians, and anyone enjoying handcrafted techniques.
